Dash guages and ligts do not work.

Recommended Posts

I picked up this 2nd boxster and was going through all the typical checks and found many incorrect fuses in the fuse box.    I corrected that and now the car starts and runs but none of the gauges

or dash lights will come on.   Headlight, radio, climate control all work fine.      I checked all the fuses and all are correct and were tested with a probe.    I checked the light switch at every position  ( I read that this is on the same circuit) and could not  effect any change on the dash.     I have been driving this around for a week and all was fine before I fixed the incorrect fuses.   ( some were twice the value rating of the diagram)   This happens to be a tiptronic  ( so my kids can drive it)  it that has any effect on the issue.   I got the fuse diagram from the internet.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

OK. I fixed it. Essentially I reset the cluster. I had checked the fuse (Row B, number 1) and it was fine. SO. I pulled it again, and then turned the car on. Then turned it off - Reinserted the fuse and then tried again. Everything is now working normally. Hope this helps someone.   This is a copy of an older post.  I DID not figure this out on my own.
