Hi there, just after some advice from a problem I Have on my YN65 1986 Single Cab Hilux. I have just put back in the dashboard, and when I tested to see if the lights etc worked, all the green back light bulbs that light up when you turn the lights on are not working. All the other lights and warning symbols work on the dash. And the cigarette lighter and clock is working. So basically the only electrical thing that is not working is all the green backlights. Any advice would be appreciated.

The back-lighting and warning lights are separate circuits. The back-lights only come on when the park lights or driving lights are on. I suspect you have a loose or bad connection behind the dash or at the stalk switch. :think:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
