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.

My 2002 Saturn L100 odometer stopped working and isn't clocking miles at all.


Odometer
The odometer is an electronic digital display. Digits displayed are illuminated by the odometer backlight bulb. The odometer backlight bulb brightness is controlled by class 2 messages from the BCM to adjust the display for daylight and instrument panel dimming operation. The trip odometer and total odometer will show in this display area. The push button in the lower right side of the speedometer is used to toggle between the trip and total odometer readings. To reset the trip odometer, push and hold the button down for at least two seconds. The total odometer display has six digits with no decimal display. The trip odometer has four digits including a decimal point and indicates tenths of a mile or kilometer.
The body control module (BCM) stores the vehicle mileage. If the BCM fails, the cluster will display the last valid mileage that was sent before the BCM failed. For replacement of the BCM refer to the BCM section of this service manual. Replacement instrument clusters do not require odometer pre-setting before installation. If the instrument cluster is replaced, the mileage stored in the BCM will be sent to the new cluster via serial data, and shown in the odometer display.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

How to disable Prius back up beep


This is a pretty easy fix.

1. Keep you foot on the break and turn the car on.
2. Press the odometer/trip button until your dash displays the odometer mileage.
3. Turn the car off and while keeping your foot on the break, restart the car by pressing the on button.
4. Immediately press and hold down the Odometer/trip button for at least 10 seconds.
5. While still holding down the Odometer/trip button put the car in reverse. You will hear the reverse beeping. Then push the park button.
6. You can now release the Odometer/trip button and if you keep pushing the button you can toggle the beep to come on or turn off by looking on your dash. It should say "b-on" or "b-off".
7. Toggle it to the "b-off" setting and put your car in reverse and that annoying beep should be turned off.

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.

Instrument panel in 2001 Ford F150 went out. How


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.
