My girlfriend has a base '03 Spectra. While driving at night, she hit the button for the rear wiper and lost all backlighting to the cluster, HVAC controls...everything but the wiper switch. Dimmer does not affect the rear wiper switch lighting. I'm at a loss. Anyone had a similar issue?

On my 06 Spectra the fuse for the dash lights is the right rear tail fuse...I have seen they "share" fuses... You need to check the fuses in the passenger compartment. Probably one is blown.

I just replaced that very fuse. Do'nt know why they would put dash lights on that fuse, very strange indeed.

There's a fuse panel in the passenger compartment? I tried looking for one and couldn't find it; just the one under the hood. I will check the RR taillamp fuse, I think I saw that one in that fuse box.

There should be one just left of the steering wheel behind a plastic door.
