Thread: dash lights

  1. #1

    Default dash lights

    This is on a 2004 Suburban 1500. Are the little figures (signs) whatever they are called that show what position your head light switch is in supposed to illuminate at night? The windshield wiper signs are lit, but not the ones where the light switch is located on the dash? Can't remember if they ever worked or if a bulb is out??


    I just go the truck back from dealer and they replaced the dash cluster becuase the speedometer went out and not sure if they screwed something up or what??

    Some more information about the problem would be handy. What year/model is the vehicle, exactly which lamp (I'm assuming you mean the high beam one, but I'm not sure), etc.

    I edited my earlier post with year and make. No, I am referring to the dash panel switch.
    Where you turn the knob to switch your head ligts on or to Auto and can dial in your dome light timer etc. It's next to the rear windshield wiper knob. The windshield wiper knobs indicators, signs, figures light up at night when lights are on but the ones for the head lights are dark.
