Icon9 help! parklights dont work!

one morning i went to start the my car and turned the lights on, my dash(speedo and tach) and parklights went out. i also smelt a burning smell. i checked the fuse under the hood and that was fine. Is there another fuse on that circuit? if not what could have gone wrong?

Re: help! parklights dont work!

the dash gas/temp gauge circuit board may have burned up. Mine (1992) did a few months ago and I had to take it apart and replace it with a '94 model gas/temp gauge (no difference) circuit board and it worked and I haven't had problems with it. What you are smelling is the solder joints on the circuit board and probably melted plastic.

By parking lights, do you mean the lights by your headlights? or the interior lights?

Re: help! parklights dont work!

took the car in to the shop to day to find out what is goin wrong. took off the plastic around steering wheel and under the dash. once that was done the dash lights and park light started working again. i am thinking it was just a pinched wire or something
