Dash lights out/Help

My dash lights just went out, everything except the mileage gauge is out, and also, the light that iluminates P R D on the shifter is out. How do i fix this?

I'm not very good at explaining, but try to stay with me... you have two different fuse panels. One under the hood and another under your dash on the drivers side. (Its in an akward position and a pain in the you know what to get to). I believe your dash light fuse is in the panel under the dash. Look in your owners manual to find the fuse diagram and it should tell you where the fuse is located inside the panel. Then just pop off the cover from the fuse panel, grab the fuse puller from its holding place and replace the fuse. Just be sure to use the same amp fuse as the one already in there. Any questions or problems just let me know

Re: Dash lights out/Help

Before you take it all apart, make sure you didn't just accidentally turn it down. I forgot it twists and turned mine down by accident. Thought I blew my lights or something. Boy, did I feel dumb(but relieved) when I realized I had just turned it down..

Well hope it's just a blown fuse then and not a bigger problem. You twist the light knob to control dim for future reference.
