My illumination on the dashboard isnt working, had a radio recently installed and the illumination suddenly stopped working since. Told it was a fuse issue but cannot seem to find the dashboard lights indicated on the interior fuse box diagram, please help.

Also, if anyone would know the running break light fuse as well, and where specifically that would be located thatd be grand too. That I'm pretty sure wasnt working when I bought the vehicle recently. Only had noticed one day while on my way to work that they didnt flick on as I do night shifts.

Hello Souveran!

This may be the first post I'm able to help on. I just had the same issue with my '04. The running lights and dash illumination lights run off of the same circuit. In the fuse box under your hood will be a 15a fuse, #39 in the attached fuse diagram.

Mine kept blowing, as I had a short in the wiring of my rear passenger bulb socket. I would first check all of your rear bulbs. If any bulbs are blown, remove it, replace the fuse (assuming it is blown), and check whether the dash lights and rear lights resume working correctly when turning your lights on. If you do not have a blown bulb, as I did not, then remove all of your rear bulbs, replace the fuse, (assuming it is blown), and then one at a time put them back. After putting each bulb in, keep the lights on for 3-10 minutes to allow it time to blow the fuse before putting the next in. This will allow you to ascertain which bulb/socket is the issue and move on from there.

Please let me know if this helps, and if I explained in an understandable way. :)

I have a similar problem, I hope your advice will help me. But besides it, I noticed another issue with my car, the LED headlights aren't working properly. I think I have to change them. Do you have any suggestions on how to solve this issue? I already found on ukled.co.uk some options of LED strips that I want to order. A friend recommended it to me and as he said, these LED strips won't get damaged so quickly. I don't know what to do, so any recommendations will be more than welcome.

Another consideration would be the illumination wire on the vehicle harness. Many aftermarket radios are not compatible with the factory dimmer setup. This wire is usually left disconnected.
