    I have run into the same problem on my daughter's car. I need the same help in replacing the dash lights. I am not sure how to access them to fix it myself. The dealer was a fortune to do this simple task. Thanks for any help in this matter.

Talking the cluster out of the dash isn't easy, Thats why the Dealer wants so much to do this SIMPLE task. You can do this yourself if you have the time and the patience. remember where all the screws go. some screws are in glove box and others are inside of vents when u can access by gently prying the side of the vent cover with a small flat screwdriver, then look around the cluster fro screws oh and don't forget the screws under speaker covers on dash.

How do I replace dash light bulbs on a 2007 Ford Escape?

What lights are not working ? The instrument cluster illumination is inoperative or all the lights ,radio , heater control head, all the switches that would be back lighted.
  • The climate control panel illumination is inoperative , The passenger door lock control switch illumination is inoperative. Could need new dimmer switch , new instrument cluster. When installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the module configuration to the scan tool. Following installation of the new instrument cluster, download the module configuration from the scan tool into the new instrument cluster. Refer to Section 418-01 .

    I just want to know if dash lights and radio lights can be changed?

    I have never seen one you couldn't change. You will probably have to take the instrument cluster and the radio out. Little bulbs plug in the back of the inst cluster. The radio might have a bulb down through the top or you might have to take the face off the radio to find it. I have changed both before.

    2001 volvo V70 T5 Problems

    Had this same problem with a 2001 v70. Dealer needed to download new software to the computer. Took about 20 minutes and solved the problem. (The problem happened at 10 degrees below zero and I went in to see if they could tell me where the fuses for those circuits were located.)

    Unfortunately the sofware re-load was not cheap.

    It is the switch on the steering column with the lever on it, each circuit is seperate for right and left signal lights, so one signal light can work and the other not.
