I have been experiencing ongoing electrical problems with the dashboard lights going out. It is very dangerous at night because you canT see the speedometer and the car is very dark on the inside. I have taken my vehicle in over 5 times for repair and it's still not working. This has been an on-going problem with the electrical system (dash board lights). Twice they said it was the fuse which they replaced both times. Within three days of repair the lights were out again on both instances. The third time they said the electrical wiring was loose. They fixed the wiring but approximately two weeks later the lights went out again. I took it back for repair and they said the wiring was loose again and they fixed it. Again, the lights went out. I took the vehicle back to the dealership where I purchased it and they stated that the ignition switch was bad so they replaced it. This time the lights stayed on about a month and now it's out again.
