This picture is with my headlights on. Now - if there's a seperate button to illuminate the dash, let me know and slap me.

But I doubt that. However there is a huge amount of buttons, so I wouldn't be surprised (jk).

Anyway, the problem is self explanatory. One fuse WAS out. I forget the number but when I replaced it, the lights you see came on.

I just bought the car so I don't know if it was flickering before it went out. I did a search before making this post and I saw a lot of that but I don't know if that's my problem.

Someone mentioned fuse #13 and also #23, if I remember correctly. Should I check those?

Even though I can estimate my speed, it's nice to know how fast I'm going (the gauges work - I just can't see them).

I'm praying this is something easy! Thanks again guys. You might remember me. I bought that crashed '95 and it's running better than both of my parents' Ford Focuses (2002 and 2004) now. I fixed the mechanical stuff. I think secretly my dad envies me right now....

I'm sorry - this car is a 1995 with 200k miles.

Any ideas? By now I feel out the speed but it would still be nice to see it.

There should be a **** on the dash on the left side. (At least that's where it is on the 93-94) If you cant see the gauges only when you turn on the headlights then turn the ****, it must be all the way down.

also I couldn't help but notice your steering wheel is all the way UP?! the tilt and telescoping function can be repaired!
