I have a 2003 diamanté, the instrument cluster lights have

Customer Question

I have a 2003 diamanté , the instrument cluster lights have stopped working for sometime now. I've pulled the cluster and checked the bulbs through direct connection and they work fine. All fuses relating to the instrument cluster and radio have been checked and are fine. There must be a bad connection somewhere but I'm not sure where

I'm no getting any power from the green/white wire at any point, none from the clock button plug, none from the dimmer plug

Does the illumination on the illumination at the TCS switch and ashtray work?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Not sure where the tcs is but the ashtray has no lighting. I installed a new head unit awhile back and there are what looks to be 2 antenna plugs but the aftermarket head units have one fitting soci left the smaller undone, not sure of that has anything to do with it

Is dedicated fuse 1 under the hood powered with the headlights on?

Is the instrument cluster black/yellow wire showing continuity to ground?

  • I have not heard back from you, so I assume you were not pleased. We're you pleased with my help?
  • If you were not pleased with my help, please let me know by replying so I can help more.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I may never know it.)

Thanks Chris
