Guys,

I have a 1.4 Astra MK4 1999.

Today I turned on my headlights but the dash lights did not come on.


  • None of the heater controls have any backlight
  • The MFD and mileage counter do not dim/brighten when the headlights are turned on/off
  • No backlights behind the speedometer etc
  • cigarette lighter illuminations not working

  • The lights on the headlight switch work
  • The radio's lights work
  • The light on the MFD and mileage counter work
  • All indication lights (indicators, hand brake, hazard) work fine.
  • cigarette lighter works
Any ideas?

I have checked the fuses, they all look ok.

check individual check handbook for actual fuses

Stating the obvious, but have you tried turning your dashboard panel lights up via dimmer control?

Just to let you guys know, the problem has now been resolved.

I checked all the fuses with a multimeter, they were all fine.

I pulled out the rubber bit (on the far right of the fusebox) and plugged it back in. Everything lit up again.
