Q: Dashboard lights not working

asked by on

My dashboard lights are out.

Hi. The common problem with dash lights going out is a power inverter malfunction. The only fix is to replace the whole dashboard. I would check the fuses for the dash lights first and if they are okay, the problem will most likely be a failing dashboard. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the electrical components to make sure what the actual problem is.
