Did you try the dimmer switch? Did you connect the red wire from the Pioneer to the correct turn on wire?

Did you double check your grounds for good contact? When I have problems with electrical I always check grounds.. those lil buggers seem to be the reason every time

I'm thinking that's the problem. I'm going to be rechecking the grounds shortly

this happened once to me and while i was replacing the bulbs and it appears that the wiring in the circuit board blew one of the protective fuses (on the board itself) and i had to re-solder it

Well you bumped this up. I am also having this problem. Anyone know where the fuse is on the mother board? ( behind the gauges) I looked around for the fuse but did not see one that I could soder. My gauge lights are not working at all. Cant seem to find the problem. I am looking for a new board online but no luck yet. HELP! Thanks

Hello everybody its been a while since i was here.
Just got a 2007 impreza 2.5i.
Today i installed a pioneer deck and when it started to get dark i realized none of my dash lights worked...... when i got home i changed out the deck for the factory and still no dash lights.

did a couple of searches and checked fuse 9 & 12 but they look fine.
any help is greatly appreciated
