Electrical problem
1997 Chevy Malibu 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 210000 miles

All the warning lights come on, check fuses on both sides and underhood, they all have power, tail lights work.

Replaced dimmer switch, replaced light/wiper switches

I still have no dash lights. Hard to drive at night.

Do you have wire diagram?

It is a walmart special radio - and the lights do come on.

What light bulbs in the back of panel? All the warning lights are working. Headlights, highbeam on dash. These all work. Just no night lights to see panel.

Also noticed that the shifter lights don't work - the one between the seats. Can see at night.

They all use to work, then just one day started the car and NO dash lights
