Vehicles over 15-years-old can often manifest a number of electrical problems. If the dash lights on your 1994 Nissan Sentra begin to fail you must look to replace them. Driving with broken dash lights is not only dangerous for you but other drivers. You can pick up replacement bulbs for your instrument panel at your local auto store.
Raise the hood of your Nissan and locate the battery pack. Disconnect both the positive and negative terminals. Use pliers to carefully pull them off their terminals.2
Sit on the drivers seat of the vehicle and lower the steering wheel. You should move it to its lowest possible position to give you easy access to the instrument panel.3
Use a screwdriver to remove the screws which hold the bezel in place around the instrument panel. There should be two screws to remove.4
Remove the three mounting screws which attach the instrument panel to the dashboard. Slide the instrument panel slowly out of the dash. Slide your hand around the back of the panel and remove the electrical connector. If you are struggling to remove it with your hand, use a flat-head screwdriver to pry it loose. Lift the instrument panel out and place it on a flat work surface.5
Unscrew the broken dash lights and discard them in the trash. Screw in the new bulbs in a clockwise direction until you can no longer turn them any further. This will ensure they are firmly locked in place.6
Reattach the instrument panel and the bezel to the dashboard following the removal steps in reverse. Attach the battery terminals under the hood and turn the key to the auxiliary position to check that the dash lights now work correctly.
