2002 Honda Civic EX Computer Problem

My 2002 Honda Civic EX “lived” with me in Myrtle Beach. Twice it got a little bit cold (low 30’s) and the dashboard lights and gauges didn’t work. I moved to Ohio (brrrr) 3 yrs ago. When it is cold, the dash lights/gauges don’t come on until I drive a little or warm up the car. Tonight, they NEVER came on, even after driving 45 mins on the interstate. Help!

When dash gauges and lights are not working and everything else is, it is a good idea to start looking at the ground wire for the dashboard.

Thanks. Also of note, when this happens (still today - looks like it isn’t going to “Fix itself” this time)the emergency brake indicator light stays on. The turn signal indicators still show up.
