Dash Lights, More Like Dash Darks...
For some time now none of the lights in my dash, including the light for my shifter have not been working (with the exception of my aftermarket stereo head unit). My gauges and all of the controls still work, just won't light up.
When I turn my headlight knob on, I hear something like a cackling coming from behind the cluster or the stereo, it sounds kind of like a smaller & slower tazer. I thought it was the cluster at first, but I just replaced the cluster and the problem persists. The bottom row of lights on the cluster still work (brights, ABS, check engine, etc), gauges don't light up, AC control is dark, and shifter is dark.
Any ideas? Fuses are all good. I fear this may be a bigger electrical problem within the dash.
