Ok I was showing off my blue dash to a mate when my lights went off. Headlights were still going and I had high beam light signal on, my economy mode light still going, crusise control light and rear demister light. But no dash lights, no a/c lights and no gear selector lights (auto).

So I freaked out.

Then as I smartlocked the car I had no indictors flashing.

Now Im thinking it was a fuse or something like that, but what could it be?

I own a 1994 EF Futura.

Any help is really appreciated as I need to drive tomorrow night for work.

I intend to check the cluster pins tomorrow anything else? Fuses, engine bay anything I need this fixed ASAP.

Cheers.

fuses would def be a start - check 'em all & even replace the relevant ones even if they don't look blown, just in case - swap 'em around & see...

there should be a cluster/cig lighter etc fuse - as well as the courtsey lamp one - does you car start? cause if it doesn't, & the interior lamp doesn't work, it'd be the court. lamp fuse - it'd be worth just ripping anything that sounds remotrly close out though, just to check - it takes all of 2 mins

Ok after not being able to find a torc, using a neon from my previous cars for light I found that my PARK LAMPS fuse has blown so I will try this tomorrow morning can I can get another fuse.

Meanwhile I have a Supra in my garage that has been in an accident. Does anyone know where the fuse box in a Supra would be?

Cheers

probably under the bonnet in a little black box,, failing that look for little removable panels inside,, on the footwell, or where the falcon fuse box is,, wont be hard to find.. or there is always the instruction manual.. but try that last...

keep a few spare fuses in the glove box in the future - always a good idea just in case! :wink:
