Default Re: dash light not working

umm idk what front function is

to make is very clear

i have no BUTTON control lights but they do work in terms of what they are supposed to do

stereo: only thing that works is its function and the clock screen but no lights on anything else
lamp switch light does not work and the fog lights them selves do not work

----------

no 4x4 so to save u typing i dont have it

Please reference pg 37 of the wiring diagram pdf you supplied. You will see Fig 32: Instrument Illumination Circuit.

I am interested to know the status of the G205 ground. I am also intersted in the status of the 5A fuse #7.

My concern is some form of damage to the microprocessor you see in this diagram. However, that being said we should start at the smaller issues before condemning the chip as bad.

I am going to continue reviewing the diagram moving on to the exterior lights system, however I feel these two items are logical places to check for power.

nvm that ground. its under the carpet and i am going to assume you didn't mess with it. lol. That being said I have to run out for a bit and do some grocery shopping (sux) and stuff of that sort. I need to review the process of the turn signal mod and see what may have happened there. You said you connected 2 brown wires? was one brown and one brown with a white stripe (tracer)?

the brown of the marker light WAS connected to the brown of the turn signal
for both sides (WHICH I WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO DO)

the diagram i am showing you now is how it is now

----------

i connected the stripe to the black marker light (right way)
and also brown to brown (wrong way)
