Having problems with your 2002 Oldsmobile Alero ?

Dash light dimmer

\015 Boosted a friends car two weeks ago. last week dimmer switch will turn on dome light but no interior dash lighting for night driving. Swapped fuse out with different fuse on passenger side fuse box. Lights came back but two days later gone again. Did I fry something? I know of one other person with same model had same prob after boosting a vehicle and was told a sensor was blown and can't be fixed. Not sure if this was the dealer of private mechanic. She may not be able to afford to fix.. I can afford a fix within reason. What am I looking at? Is this hard to track down. Only other electrical prob with this car is the power mirror has never worked, bought car in july2008 about 100000 miles on it all highway\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 25-01-2021

Answers :

Yes there is a fuse underhood that could have gone bad please check that.that fuse can also lead this problem.
You said after replacing a fuse, the lights went back in.

i suggest you replace the fuse and turn on your parking light.( this turns on your dash lights as well) then look around the car and see if there is a busted bulb on your parking lights. front and rear. this may be the one blowing your fuse and not the dash lights.

all the lights inside are connected to the parking light fuse. the dash, the gear shift lights and radio knobs as well.

let me know what happened.

tnx 4 using fixya,
