You might need to grab ahold of the light switch knob and twist the bejesus on it to remove the burn spot on the rheostat.

Re: Dash Lites

Mark, Check your ground strap connection for your instrument cluster (top center screw) if loose, missing or rusty can cause dash light problems.

Mark, I wasnt paying attention to see you have a Nova it still could be a gnd issue on your instrument cluster connection
