Odometer light went out. Is there a bulb or a fuze?

My odometer light went out. I can still see the display when I shine a flashlight on it, and it is keeping the mileage. Is there an easy fix like a bulb or a fuze, or is this an entire cluster issue?

All the lights work off the same fuse so the problem is the light bulb, you will have to pull the instrument cluster out to gain access to change the burnt out bulb.

Well I ordered a speedometer on eBay and used it for parts to rebuild mine I opened both of them up took all the Burnt ones out and replace them with the good ones from the speedometer I bought online but keep in mind that they are soldered on so u will need a soldering gun to do this hope this helps you mine works just fine you can by one but u would have to get it programmed for ur car cause it wouldn't show the mileage u have on yours unless programed

Odometer does does not work on 2001 century buick


If the numbers are still working, it may just be a bulb. Get a kid to go under the dash and see if he can see the back of the console. It will be plastic with wires going to various places in it. Those places usually are the lights. Figuring out which is the right place takes communication and time. With the parking lites on, the bulb that is not lit in the likely place is probably the one you're looking for.
Buy the kid ice cream. He'll need a small flashlight.

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.

How do i replace the odometer cluster on a 2001 Buick Century? Odometer only light up if i hit dashboard, Then it goes out.


You dont need to replace the cluster you just need to replace the bulbs, by hitting it the bulb filment thats bad make a connection, if you remove the cluster and look at the rear of it you will see the bulbs, there are many bulbs some for the battery light and oil light, so use a flash light and when you remove a bulb shine light through the hole and see if it the correct bulb or if its a symbol bulb, most of the time the lighting bulbs use a diffrent color socket, what you do is untwist the socket then it pulls out and the bulb is on it, you then pull bulb out of socket and install new bulb on socket and twist back in, you dont need to replace the whole cluster and the bulbs are sold at any parts place, take one out and match it up it should be part # 194 bulb.

My led odometer, temperature and trip indicator light went out on my 2004 F150, is there a separate light bulb for this? or is it a backlit led device?


Yes, this is a bulb specific to the odometer area .

Find some directions online for a gauge overlay to remove the cluster from the dash, and the bulb is in a quarter twist holder right behind the odometer.

There are some threads at F150online.com, in the technical articles / How to forum for the cluster overlay that might help with removing the cluster.

If you are talking about the odometer display does not show numbers, here is a detailed instructions on where to find the cold solder joints at :

This is if the cluster lighting still works, but the display is blank. Don't know if you mean the gauges in the cluster do not work.

Odometer back light not functioning on a 2005 Ford F 150


IF the odometer numbers work correctly, and this is the back light when the parking lamps are on, the bulb is burnt out.

In this picture, the odometer backlight bulb is the 1/4 turn bulb holder that is removed in the lower left hand corner.

I have a 2000 pontiac sunfire and the odometer light went out. Not sure if there is a fuse for this or i have to replace the instrument panel.


There will be a fuse for you dash lights and they are just light bulbs in the back. Is it just your odometer light that went out or the whole dash cluster? In all likeliness it's probably just the bulb that burned out.
