    Hi guys,
    I just noticed several of my indicator lights do not work on my Canadian 00 civic SE - and yes, they used to! I don't know when they stopped working. Here are the ones that DO NOT work:

    -low oil pressure indicator
    -parking brake indicator
    -ABS indicator
    -Malfunction Indicator lamp
    -Low fuel indicator
    -washer level indicator

    The rest work fine, and illuminate when I have my key in the on position.

    What do you guys think the problem is? Fuse? Light bulbs? Something else?

    Ok I took the cluster out, I have it here in my hands hehehe
    I made a mistake... not all those lights are out. Just these 3:

    -Low fuel indicator
    -washer level indicator
    -Trunk indicator

    It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs.

    Any specific fuses? itd be annoying (and COLD!) to go through every fuse in the car looking for a broken one.

    pop the bonnet and the fuse box lid should have a diagram showing which fuses affect certain areas.

    look for the one you're having problems with and hopefully that means you won't have to go through all of them! cold? you woman!

    Should it be the fuse box under the dash, or under the hood?

    Ok, fuses look good, light bulbs are fine... What else can I potentially check?

    I have the same problem with my 00 EX. Let me know if you figure anything out.
    I swapped bulps, checked fuses, and wiring. So far, nothing!
