Hello, thank you to all who have contributed to this thread.
I too have a 2001 Accent SGI and the blue dashboard lights won't come on and I need some help.
I have tried everyhting mentioned so far in this forum:
- tail lights are not affected, so it's not a fuse problem
- I've checked all fuses, all are good.
- I've replaced all 4 black diodes (2 under hood, 2 under steering column)
- I've replaced the rheostat (dimmer switch)
Now the strange thing is the "white" lights that illuminate the odometer and trip odometer ARE working and do dim with the dimmer. Just no indiglo blue to light up the tach, speedometer and gas and temperature gauges.
Tonight I took the cluster out of the car and notice the odometer has "push & turn" little lights that you can pop in and out, as does the entire lower row of status lights.
I cannot find ANYTHING to seems to point to where the light is for the indiglo blue lights?
Can someone point me in the right direction?? I have taken a close up photo of the back of the cluster if that will help.
Also, I notice on the back of the cluster there are actually a couple of "sockets" for more of those "push and turn" lamps, but they are sealed over with some sort of black tape, obviously from the factory.
ANY help on getting my blue indeglo dashlights working again would be a very much appreciated help!!
