The dashboard lights suddenly went out on my 94 Bronco. All other lights
are fine. I replaced the fuse, no help. I can still use the dimmer switch to turn on/off the interior dome light, but the dshboard lights are totally out.
My understanding is there are 5 bulbs for the dash, so I'm sure they did not all go out at the same time. Sound like a wiring problem, or could the dimmer switch still allow the dome to turn off/on but not be able to light the dash?

thnks

It's probably the headlight switch burning its terminals off. Pull the cluster bezel & inspect. If it's OK, you'll be that much closer to checking the cluster bulbs.

Mine did the same thing...pull the switch all the way out, then push it in really slowly about 1/4 inch or less, mine come on if I do this...and I need to replace the switch.

same thing

I had the same problem with my dash lights. I even got pulled over because my tail lights were both out. Apparently they are on the same fuse.

My problem was traced back to a bad ground in the trailer wiring behind my liscence plate. It caused the fuse to blow every time i put a new one in.

Like the others said, track down all the grounds you can.

Headlight switch......well known issue with these trucks. It is yet another part I will need to get a hold of and keep one or two on the shelf for backup!

thnks for the responses- How in the world do you get the old knob and switch out?- I've never had to replace one of these b4-It doesn't look like you can reach up underneath the dash.

Haynes shows both ways: reaching under the dash to press the shaft release button, or using a hook in the notch on the back of the knob to release it from the shaft. The hook is easier.
