Dash and Console Lights

Hi All

Im having some trouble with Dash and console lights not working... the gauges and indicators are all fine i have checked the globes and i have used a test light to check but i still have no luck... I checked all fuses and they are all good except one its half the size of the others and its on the very bottom and im still waiiting for the manules to arrive..

must be a power issiue or could it be the switch

that little half size fuse is only live when the lights are on. It is the dash light fuse. If you have power on one side with the lights on you have found your problem.

Re: Dash and Console Lights

the light switch assembly on a 69 has a small button on the bottom of the physical switch you have to push in in order to "unlock" the stem and be able to pull it out of the assembly. Need small fingers.

But I would just see if the light switch has been rotated all the way to the dash light off position?
