This happened to me once after towing an old furniture trailer around. Turned out for some bizzzare reason the reverse lights on the surf are hooked up to the same fuse as the intruments and dash lights and the old lights on the trailer were drawing too much load.

So my first guess would be try the fuses in the footwell, you shoud be able to remove each one and either check it with a multimeter, or in most cases you should be able to see if it's blown just by looking at it.

I reckon it's just a fuse.

Hi,
I have a Prado so it might be wired a bit different, but I had the same problem. No instruments, no dash lights. Door lights OK.

Like Jeffwa, it turned out to be a 10A fuse (red one) in the drivers side fuse panel.

I had been towing a trailer where the trailer reversing lights were connected up to the blinkers, too much load and it blew the fuse.

Best of luck fiinding and fixing the problem

Cheers,

There is a 15 amp fuse in the left kick panel in the front, It happened to me a couple of times so I replaced it with a 20 amp fuse and no more problems.

This happened last year.

Cheers Steve.

Pull the plug in the back of the alternator, clean it up a bit and slip them back in. Hopefully you'll have instruments again. Its a problem thats peculiar to the 100series, I believe.
