my dash lights are not working. i removed the light switch to do some work behind the dash and when everything was replaced the dash lights did not work. i can get the dash lights [bright] and overhead lights to come on useing the light switch,but no [dimming] lights in the dash come on. is there a fuse for the dash light circut.

My TM has a dash light fuse. I do not know where yours is located, mine is in the compartment under the driver's seat.

Hi Frank:
On my TM there is a "wheel" next to my lights. I thumb it to brighten, or dim my dash lights. Assuming you have the same, and have checked it and it is not working, then I would replace the dimming wheel/switch.

replaced the light switch with model number AC delco D1588 and got my dash lights back. its the stock light switch for GM 1977 to1981 trucks/cars

Thanks for the follow-up. It sounds like you were able to buy the switch at a local auto parts store.
Have a great day.
