Introduction

You'll probably never need to diagnose an instrument light problem with your car, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun performing this test. And knowing that the gauges and lights are working is reassuring.

If you want to show this to friends, be warned that HID headlights service life can be reduced by turning them on and off needlessly. The bulbs aren't cheap.

As a precursor, consider removing the 15A left & right low headlight fuses from the under-hood fuse box, positions 1 and 6. (Refer to your Owners Manual for instructions, or an iFixit guide.)

This looks like the fix I may be looking for! What make or model vehicle is this? My Chrysler Town & Country used to occasionally get the gauge needles pinned to infinite and there was a similar procedure to run the self test and reset the needles. My Mom’s old GM Delta 88 has been having a similar problem and I am wondering if this procedure will work on her car.
