another issue...dashboard lights?

Hello All,

I have a problem with my 92 6cyl 5spd. It rained heavily last week here in ct and since my windshield cowel is shot water got into my dash and killed my dashboard lights. This happened once over the summer when it rained heavily but was fine once it dried but not this time.

What happened now is that the only lights that work on my dash is the cluster with the shift and high beam indicator right in the center above the steering wheel everything else wont light up. Also the back dome light stays lite all the time so I pulled the bulb.

Any help on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated. i check for a fuse in the fuse box above the clutch but did see anything labeled dash.

Thanks again.

Did you give it a good thump?

Seriously. Get yourself some electrical cleaner and open that dash up. There might still be some moisture in the connectors or debris. Quite possibly it's just a bad bulb or two as well. Won't know until you open the dash.
