Dash light failure

all the lights on my dashboard have ceased to work. its not a fuse. does anybody have suggestions as to cause of problem thanks

If you are certain that it is not the fuse, then two possibilities come to mind:

  1. rheostat thet controls the brightness of the dash lights;
  2. a bad ground connection for the dashlights.

Go check your brake lights. Often they are on the same circuit as the dashligts. If the brake lights are inoperative, then check for an open circuit that controls the brake lights and the dashlights.

What are you driving?

sorry seat ibiza, thanks for advice brake lights ok

Am I Missing Something ? What’s A Seat Ibiza? Is It Like An Isetta ?

“sorry seat ibiza, thanks for advice brake lights ok”

This is not just a dash light failure, but what we have here is a failure to communicate.


A SEAT is a VW-designed car manufactured in Spain. Apparently the Ibiza is one of the SEAT models.

If you want to see what one looks like, here is a link:

VDC Driver, Thank You. Pardon My Ignorance.

Knowing what I now know, I actually now know less than I knew before, sorry. Then it’s probably more similar to a Zamboni. I’m afraid I won’t be able to do much good.

P.S. That thing looks like it would go like a stray bullet! Cute!

Actually, I’m wrong about the brake lights often being on the same circuit as the dashlights. It is the tail lights that are often on the same circuit. Check to see if your tail lights are working.
