Dashboard lights out 1994 E320

Hello fellow enthusiasts,

My dash lights (the lights that illuminate the switches), the radio illumination and my instrument panel lights are all out. All the other things that are connected to the relevant fuse in the fusebox are fine (license plate light, seatbelt warning module etc.). Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Turn the instrument cluster dimmer switch ( lower left from speedo ) to the right.
It's the same knob that pushes in to reset the mileage.
Too often when you reset you also turn left and dim the lights to off.

Thanks so much! Can't believe that's all it was. I have since bought an owner's manual to prevent any more ignorance-related issues.

Perfect!

Can't believe this either! I was expecting to retrace the path after replacing my engine wiring harness. Just turn the knob! I've had this car for 6 years and had not idea. Thank you!!

RBYCC you and your knowlege of the owners manual!!! curse you!!! just kidding. Good job with the speedy help out.

Just a suggestion all if you dont have the owners manual find a digital copy, download and print it out. Its got alot of easy answers like fluids how much and some part numbers and sizes.
