Dash Lights

Recommended Posts

While driving with the headlights on all of the dash lights (instrument cluster, radio, etc.) will occasionally shut off for a few seconds, and then turn back on. Any ideas? Electical and wiring stuff is definitley not my stromg suit. Thanks.

check out the fusible link by the battery and check the battery terminals for corrosion

Tap on the dimmer switch when this happens. If they light back, you need a dimmer.

highly likely

i forgot about that because earlier wd21s have a dimmer knob which is not prone to getting clogged and dirty like those rolling ones are :tongue:

Quick question when the radio goes off is it just the display(lights) or sound and all.

 

If its sound and all meaning it turned off and back on i would check the fusible link there the 2 connectors that plug into the black box on the positive battery cable post.

 

If it just the lights and the radio i still playing then i agree with checking the dimmer switch.

Dont quote me on it, but I think I remember on here one time that it could be a failing alternator. May want to check it out. Mine flicker everyone and a while but I also think that it is the dimmer switch. Good luck.

Thanks for the info. It is just the lights that go out for a few seconds, and then come back on. So it sounds like it is probably the dimmer switch. I will check it out. Thanks again.
