    i have a 98 and my light is out fo the oil pressure gauge. you need to replace the dash light. they are pretty cheap at the auto parts stores and come in pairs. the problem comes when you are trying to get to them...you'll need someone who can remove the entire panel starting with the steering wheel! alot of screws are hidden from view so you will have to...
    1) disconnect your battery
    2) loosen the scews behind the steering wheel and remove the airbag unit
    3) remove the wheel it self
    4) remove streeing column (upper piece)
    5) then you can get to the panel with some ease...

    it sounds like alot, but that's what we get for owning a german made caddy.

    good luck

find your car. then pick the part. go to the bottum where it says fix it your self. this is all the directions you will need.

Juan is correct. you just need to replace the bulbs, AFTER CHECKING ALL YOUR FUSE BOX'S.

I SAY AGAIN AFTER CHECKING YOUR FUSE BOX. you probably have more than one fuse box. please research this and then get to it.

Where do I find the ground unit for the gas gauge on a 95 Honda passport. I went and changed the dash board lights and the gas gauge started tripping and stopped working need help


If the fuel guage worked prior to changing the bulbs the ground should be ok. The only thing disturbed was the cluster assembly when you removed it. Recheck the connections at the back of the cluster again for tight connections and making sure there are no bent pins. You can also try tapping on the cluster near the fuel guage area to see if that helps

Gas don't work change the sender still don't work


IF the guage is not working and you changed the sender, it is the guage. You cannot get just a guage, you have to replace the whole instrument panel or send the one that you have out for repair.

does it have any other little markings that light up with it? like if it has little lines coming from where the brake lights are then you probably have a brake light bulb blown.

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.
