This isn't too hard, but does take a while. Turn the car off & disconnect the battery. Set some blocks on the wheels. Turn the ignition on, and move the shift lever all the way to the right (low gear). Then, remove the screws from all the dash trim and (carefully!!!) pull it away - there might be some snap locks also, you don't wanna break those! After that, the panel comes out just by removing some screws. You disconnect the speedometer cable and the small string going to the gear indicator (again, be careful!!)

First place to go is the fuse box. Looks like you've got one loose fuse. Remove the fuse for the instrument panel cluster.Inspect both the fuse and the socket it's in. Clean or replace as necessary.

How to replace the dashboard bulb in a 1999 plymouth voyager


Which light is out? Is it an instrument cluster light, or one on the temperature or A/C cluster? It it's an instrument cluster light, here is the process: (I'm assuming the 99 is similar to the 98) Remove the bottom dash panel under the steering wheel, remove the instrument cluster cover around the steering column. This will reveal the screws that hold your instrument cluster cover in place. Remove this cover and you can then see and remove the 4 screws holding your instrument cluster in place. Pull your instrument cluster out, remove the main wire connector, then you have access to all the instrument cluster lights on the back side. Hopefully you remember which one is out!
