If you move the dimmer knob for the instrument lights around does it have any effect on the lights? I would try to remove the dimmer light switch and maybe swap it out with another one from the wrecking yard or try possibly removing the instrument panel and finding the wire that goes from the dimmer knob to the instrument panel by looking at the wiring colors and then verifying with a voltmeter by looking to see that the voltage changes when you move the dimmer knob.I guess I should clarify, when the instrument panel loses its lights does the rest of the dash like the shifter lights and lights in the buttons fail to work as well? Or is it just the instrument cluster?It was just the instrument cluster, I would probably say you need to open up this room panel and look for any cold solder joints and possibly touch up the solder joints for the electrical connectors that come into the back of the cluster where they attach to the circuit board.If I've answered your question your satisfaction please don't forget to hit accept next to my name as that is the only way that the site compensates me for my time.

1994 olds cutlass supreme convertible. It just quit as I was
it just quit as I was turning from a stop light. Like it died. When I went to restart it it sounded as if it was trying to fire but couldn't. It had to be towed. It is not the battery or cables.

The other things we have not been able to address is the air conditioner clicks like the damper won't open or shut completely and it will all. Y itself start blowing on high and you can't get it to go off. It hasn't done that since the electrical mechanic handled it. But what has us now is that it won't start and the device center said they "think" it needs a new motor. Can you help … read more
