Guys,

Just noticed this last night, therefore havent looked at anything yet but thought ppl might have some thoughts...

Dash lights are not coming on... no parking lights either... headlights and high beams work fine... clock and odo are dimming with headlights... just not parking lights and no dash lights...

Fuse? Relay?

Cheers

the clock (if i remember correctly) is run from a different fuse to the cluster lights - so that fits in... i'd be looking at the fuse - racking my brains, but can't remember what fuse the parkers run off sorry :?

i'll try & remember to have a look @ lunchtime for you martin, and let you know what the deal is!

no - that controls the smartlock & interior lamps only - the car wouldn't be starting if that had blown.

Hey Martin, if you've got no dash lights there is a good chance you've got no tail lights. Don't let Mr Plod see!

According to the Bible there is a parker relay. The parker circuit is fed from fuse 17 and the parker relay is next to the fuse panel.

Spot on Darin... park lamp fuse was dud.. tracked the problem to the backlighting for the oil pressure gauge.. all good now. Always good to have a couple of 20A fuses lying around :!:

Thanks for the help lads.
