DashCover Frequently Asked Questions:

Which fabric and color is best for my dash board?

Sorry this is going to be a personal preference question. We do offer though a wide variety of colors and materials to let you pick the dash cover that fits your vehicle, style, and personality best. For a subtle look though we recommend matching the color of your dash to your dashboard or your seats. For a bolder look sometimes it is best to pick a color that will add some contrast or that will make your dash pop like red.

Each material offers a unique flare. Our carpet DashCovers are the most popular due to the color options available and are backed by a lifetime warranty. However velour adds a plush look, suede adds a refined look, DashTex & LTD offer a modern look, and our camo DashCovers offer a rugged look.

You have DashCovers & DashMats what is the difference?

We make have two manufacturers we work with to make the best DashCovers possible that fit the widest assortment of vehicles possible. Both manufacturers create an amazing product that will fit your vehicle perfectly. The big difference between the two is on DashCovers you can pick your color thread if you choose embroidery. On DashMats there is a pre-selected color thread based on the color mat you choose that we believe will pair with your DashMat best. Also on DashMats not only can you add embroidery, but you can also add logos or logos with embroidery.

Will the DashCover fit my vehicle perfectly?

What is a light sensor and how do I know if I have one?

A light sensor tells your automatic headlights to turn on if your vehicle is so equipped. The sensor is located on top of the dashboard and near the windshield.

If your vehicle headlights come on automatically at night, you have a light sensor. Do not confuse auto headlights with daytime running lights that come on every time the vehicle is started.

A small opening will be made in your DashCover to allow the sensor to function. When ordering you may see multiple options one with sensor and one without sensor. If there is no light sensor no opening will be cut.

A climate control sensor helps determine the cabin temperature. If you have climate control, the AC/Heating control know will have numbers (temperature settings) and the AC or heater will come on automatically to maintain the selected temperature.

The sensor is usually located on top of the dashboard and near the windshield.

A small opening will be made in your DashCover if you have this sensor to allow the senor to function. When ordering you may see multiple options one with sensor and one without sensor. If there is no climate control sensor no opening will be cut.
