It is actually quite a simple process to replace the bulb.
You normally need to remove the plastic surrounding your dash to get access to the gauge cluster, then pull off the access panel to the gauge cluster and yank the offending bulb out!

I would imagine it would take a tech 1hr to do this, so 70$ + parts.

    do u know where i can get a bulb

  • Bubbly Bullseye Feb 07, 2012

    Autozone or napa, they should be able to give you more specific directions on replacing the bulb as well.

  • cody woods Feb 07, 2012

    thank u for ur help

  • Bubbly Bullseye Feb 07, 2012

    Np, best of luck :)
    Oh and wear gloves when handling the bulbs, the oils on your skin make 'hot spots' on the bulb which will make it burn out quicker.

  • cody woods Feb 07, 2012

    now when i go to autozone or wherever i buy it do i just tell them that my odometer light is out and need a bulb

  • Bubbly Bullseye Feb 08, 2012

    No problem

  • cody woods Feb 08, 2012

    i was told also that u can try shining a flash light over the odometer and u mite b able to c the mileage

  • Bubbly Bullseye Feb 09, 2012

    Well if you want ghetto fix then I'm sure that taping a light to your dash would work....

  • cody woods Feb 09, 2012

    im just getting it fixed saturday thx for ur help again

Need to know why my light for my speed odometer does not work ...my Speed odometer does work just not the light


if its just the light not working means one of the light fuse to your odometer got burnt or died out or even just being loose however you will need to visit a garage to replace the IGN 0 fuse. if you want to do it yourself check on the fuses with label 15 but would advise you visit a garage lighting specialist.

This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems;
Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer. Vehicles equipped with tachometer have an electronic vacuum fluorescent transmission range indicator (PRND3L),odometer and trip odometer display. Vehicles without tachometer are equipped with a cable-operated transmission range indicator.
Instrument cluster is equipped with the following warning lights:
Battery voltage.
Cruise (speed control).
Door ajar.
Fasten seat belt.
Lift gate ajar.
Low fuel level.
Low windshield and washer level.
Traction Control.
The Body Control Module (BCM), which receives input from various sensors, sends display information to instrument cluster and operates gauges. Instrument cluster incorporates a self-test diagnostic feature to identify electronic problems. BCM, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and Transmission Control Module (TCM) are continuously monitored by the diagnostic system.

SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.
DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART
CodeDescription
110.......Cluster Memory Fault
111.......Cluster Calibration Fault
905.......No CCD Bus Message From TCM
921.......Odometer Fault From BCM
940.......No CCD Bus Message From PCM

After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:
Dim test.
Calibration test.
Odometer segment test.
Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
Dim Test
CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Florescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists. See BODY CONTROL COMPUTER TESTS in BODY CONTROL COMPUTER article.
Calibration Test
CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Odometer Segment Test
CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

Toyota sienna 1998 odometer light went out


if its only the odometer light thats out then you will have to pull the dash assembly and replace the bulb for the odometer,its a good idea to replace the other bulbs so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.

Odometer light faded away still working but no light, how do I fix this problem The answer we need is how to replace this bulb. The back light on my LED odometer is not lighting up either.


This is not LED but LCD, this means it has no light emitting capability of it's own, there is a back bulb light behind it, you will have to pull the cluster out to replace that odometer back light bulb.
