How do I fix the lights on my dashboard?

  • 2001 MERCEDES BENZ ML350

I was driving to work this morning at 5 am, and it's still dark outside. I was unable to see how fast I was driving, the level of my gas, etc. Can you please tell me how I can correct this problem? Is it a lamp? A fuse? A Sensor somewhere? Thank you so much in advance for your help!

Do you
have the same problem?

It could be the dimmer for the lights has gone bad or sometimes the multifunction switch will fail if it has the capability of turning the gauge lights on/off.
Of course check the fuse first. There is a diagram on the fuse box cover which shows the panel layout with a description of each fuses function.
It is hard to orient sometimes so use spare fuses and relays to get the orientation right and make sure that the fuse you think is the one you are looking for is the correct amperage.
