    Default Interior fuse location on Tundra

    The lights behind my climate control panel no longer work. This includes the 3 climate control knobs and the hazard light & cargo lamp button. My clock and radio work. I'm thinking its a fuse, bec it has to be more than one light. I dont have the interior fuse box cover...so can someone have a look at theirs and let me know which fuse to check? thanx

    The interior fuse panel cover is located just above the hood release. I notice that you have a 2000 Tundra ? It is common for these lights to be simply burned out as well after that long, there are 5 bulbs total behind the panel. The bulbs light multiple switches and areas of the climate control, so even a couple of burned out bulbs can make a big difference.

    Just start pulling fuses one by one and see if any are blown, if not replace bulbs.

    Thanks for the responses folks & thanks for the pic MMM...I checked the fuses and they all look good. I guess its the bulbs...or possibly a pinched wire or something. I'm gonna take off the dash cover to have a closer look.

    Possibly the plug or jack behind the panel? Check the pins in both sides of the connector. I know there's two back there.

    I did both fuse boxes, 28 fuses total plus another 6 for added accessories, just a nice convience. Of course if the factory marked each fuse very clearly with all the circuits affected it would be that much easier. Either you need a manual in your hand, a test light, or literally pull a hand full to look at them. I though for a laugh I would check my factory service manual for fuse designations. To get a clear understanding I ended up looking at the schematics. For example take a dead starter (considering it is a fuse problem), the starter relay is controlled by a 5A fuse marker "starter".... simple, but it is fed from a fuse marked "AM2" so now either of 2 fuses could be bad. But wait, there is another source of power that goes through the starter relay to the actual starter solenoid, this is fuse "AM1" ( these fuses also feed other areas so more problems would abound). So for this particular item there are 3 fuses, with only one marked clearly. Since I spend alot of time driving around at night, I would rather spend as little time as possible crawling around in the dark if I needed to trace a problem.

    It is also a nice mod that you don't have to qualify whether it gives you better gas mileage, more power, or whatever, just forget about it until it shows you the problem.
