suddenly no dash or ac/heat backlight on my 95 K1500 - a question before dismantling
So yesterday evening the backlights for my speedo, tach, fuel and other gauges,
And the backlight for the heater and AC controls were working.
I just got finished changin my oil, then was gonna yake it for a spin
To see the true oil level so I turn my lights on (yes I am a tweeker, I change
My oil at night) but no dash lights.
My overhead lights work, my stereo light works (aftermarket CD deck)
And my main headlights work, but my parking lights do not work.
However, I have never used my parking lights and maybe because I
Have an aftermarket headlight assembly I do not have the parking light feature.
So anyway I check my fuses and they are all good which leads me to this question:
Is there just 1 lightbulb that provides backlight for everything on the dash,
Or is there a lightbulb for the main gauges, and another lightbulb for the heater and AC backlight?
I am thinking it is the bulb that has gone out, but I would like to know 1st how many
Bulbs there are for the dash stuff. If it is not a bulb, then I am thinking there
May be a problem with the lighting switch that controls the headlights and dash light brightness.
Oh, and yes I checked the brightness wheel, nothing happens.
