They still do their job until to hit a good bump. My dash was fine for 1400 miles then out of the blue the lights started flickering.So out of curiosity I just went outside to check my fuse box... surprisingly I found at least 50% of the fuses were half to 3/4 the way seated down and the rest were fine. Not awful, since the fuse would still do its job since I had no issues at all, but concerning since its an easy thing to check quality wise and on such an important part of the truck. Yikes.
Good point. I haven't had a good chance to get off road yet, so there's a good chance I might have had issues with the fuses had I not checked them.They still do their job until to hit a good bump. My dash was fine for 1400 miles then out of the blue the lights started flickering.
Mine were flickering at all levels of brightness. I keep them turned all the way dim and they've been fine since I seated the fuses. InterestingSo it happened again tonight, about a week after I seated all the fuses. This time it appears to be related to the thumbwheel which controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. I had been playing with it during the daylight hours and had it turned almost all the way down. When I started up the truck tonight with the headlights on the dashboard lights started flickering. it stopped when I turned the thumbwheel to a brighter setting.
Do you know if they had the headlights on when they were checking the dash lights? Mine only flickered when the lights were onI had the truck in for the rear axle shaft recall but of course the dealer could not replicate the flickering dash lights and said there were no computer codes indicating a problem. So it is still a mystery.
