Q: dashboard and parking lights not coming on

asked by on

My dashboard and parking lights won't come on.

The problem is more than likely the switch for the headlamps. Start with checking the fuses, if okay, the switch will probably need to be replaced. I recommend having a trained technician such as one from fromYourMechanic inspect your electrical system in order to properly repair your dashboard and parking lights.
