    Need some troubleshooting help: No dash lights

    Dash removed, all bulbs changed, purchased and installed rebuilt dimmer switch from reliable re-builder.

    All guages work, all switches work (headlights, wiper, emergency flasher).

    Next Step???

    Did you check the back of the board at each bulb location to make sure you are getting power to all of them? Using a test light works well for this.

    Don't remember the wire color off the fuse block but it's marked on the block if you can read it. u should have power to both sides of the fuse, power on one side only, it's the fuse, power on neither side and the easiest way to do it is run a jumper wire

    I had this happen to me. Had a burned board that I was able to patch with some solder.

    Did change bulb sockets? The new ones DO NOT WORK. I had to remove the contacts from the old ones, file them a bit and fit them in the new plastic. New contacts are not long enough to make connections to the board.
