PostSubject: loss of dashboard lights   Tue Jul 13, 2010 9:50 pm

hi all,small problem ive had since i bought the car is..no dashboard lights,no front or rear fog lights..
now i bought a recon light switch(the one that sits near driver right side) which was guaranteed working when posted,still hasnt sorted it,checked all the fuses(that i know of) any clues? id take to an autoelectrician,but the closest one to me in birmingham charges 25/30 quid an hour,and being out of work,cant afford that.
any answers/ideas would be a godsend..Smile

john..

I also had this problem and it turned out to be a faulty fuse. Get a multimeter and check continuity across each fuse as there could be a bad connection somewhere.

Failing that all I can suggest is to try the light switch in another Zafira to confirm it is actually working.

Check the fog light relays also..is the dash light dimmer/brightness switch working..(the rolling one)? and turned on...

yep,double/triple checked the actual dimmer switch,and the relay for fogs,i assume that in the engine bay?i noticed a fuse that didnt look right in there,but it was intact,and being in the engine bay,was reluctant to mess about in there.will recheck best i can,thanks for info guys,its a big help..Smile

Not wanting to sound stupid , but you did check the fuses in the fuse box inside car drivers side of stering wheel..(of course you did..).

hehe yes i did,when i mentioned a dodgy looking fuse,i referred to the fuse box in the engine bay,its intact but seems an after market type one,compared to the rest.
