This may sound stupid, but did you check the illumination button? It should
be by the headlight switch. It turns the brightness of the dash and radio
lights up and down to your liking. If it is all the way down, you won't be
able to see anything. Also, does the entire radio not work, or just the
I would guess that they are separate issues then. Is the radio stock? Does
anything on the dash light up at all? The dash itself could be bad. Maybe
take the dash apart and check the connections at the back.
Signals work bnut don't blink on display, rpm not workin, speedo not on..
Dash lights are working, I think the speedo head is dead. I found one at a
wreckers.. If this don't work I'll convert to old school.. BUT I like the
digital.. makes the car look newer than it is
Couldn't you take the Camaro out to the wrecking yard and test it out before
spending the $100? One of my older Bonneville SSE's had a partly digital
dash, which didn't work when I bought it. I had to get a wrecking yard to
special order it from another Province, but (if memory serves) they let me
test it out before buying it. They also offer a 90-Day (usually) warranty.
Turned out the dash worked great.
Another option (if it doesn't work) is you could have one of the dash's sent
into one of the places who re-build them.
Well.. I took the dash apart and found a broken wire from the last retard
"thinking" he new how to wire up a horn bypass LOL.. oh well.. After I
spliced the wire I tried the display that was in the car.. DEAD ! I mean
this thing is a paper weight.. SO I used the one I bought for $50 as is no
warranty never seen it work and it works awesome BUT I think it is going out
as well... a hum like coming fromt he rpm part of the display..I don't care
as I was only convcerned with the wiring being good soI can get the 2
rebuilt.. Now I can rip her apart and restore it. Thanx for the replies..
