I am pretty sure my dash light burned out...anyone know how to get to it? From underneath or do i have to open up the whole dash? BTW, it's a 92 Sentra XE, 2dr.
yeah thats weird, mah friend installed a deck and then his car did the same thing... but he unplugged the dimmer switch of the gauges and shit. then he put these red neons where his gauges are. and so he can see but it gets relly anoying at timez. i think sumthing is rong with the wires you guys hookd up rong , but hey, idont know mah self so...?outkast762 said:The reason I ask is becuz the problem I get is really weird. I tried installing a new CD player in my car and the deck ending up being bad. Soon as I tried to turn it on I got a really bad smell. After I unhooked it I've encountered the following problem. When I turn on my headlights, my dashlights go out. At night I cant see any of my gauges. The sensor lights still work such as check engine, battery etc, just the illumination lights. I've checked the wires underneath and the fuses and can't see a problem there. Anyone got ideas?
