Question

I have a 69 camaro that I've been working on some after market gauges. When I finished the gauges, the interior dash lights are not working. Any suggestions where to start to speed up the process? Thanks in advance. John

check your wiring from the light switch and see if a wire is loose or broken.

It is not a fuse. It looks like there is a very faint light yet? I will explore the wires to the switch when I get a chance. thanks for your responses. John

Well, at the risk of sounding simplistic...

Running off the hint you gave by the word "faint".

The dash lights are turned down via the dimmer switch. Turn it up.

Hope it's that simple.
