Interior Lights do not work! Help!
I have a 2000 gt and my battery went dead and i had someone jump start me with the cables and now when i turn on my headlights non of my interior lights do not work. The little screen with the temp gauge and gas gauge and miles doesnt light up when i turn on my headlight and my whole center console doesnt work either. I checked all my fuses and non of them are broken. Please email me at busycorp@ptd.net or post a reply if you have a solution. Thanks

When jumping a car you have to make sure that you jump it the correct way. Positive to positive, negative to ground. If you didn't do it like that then i guess there might be a possibility you 'melted' or burnt out a connection somewhere on the main harness? I am not 100% Sure but that's the only thing i can think of. The fuses were the first thing to come to mind, but if you already checked that then, i can't tell? idunno


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

Sounds like you may have fried something. Take it to your dealer for diagnosis.

maybe you have the dimmer knob turned down, (possibility for the dash face lights any ways)

just a thought

could also still one of the fuses. I had dat happen once to me before...i thought it wasnt the fuse and took it to the dealer and they said it was the fuse and dey replaced it. Charged me $75 jus for a freakin fuse. They also said that the fuse didnt look like it was burnt but if you test it...it wont work and you couldn't tell by jus lookin at it...
