Instrument lights too dim on 2008 Saturn Outlook

I have a slight sight problem which makes it difficult to read the speedometer speed in daylight when light is dim. When the speedometer light is bright I can read speed OK, Is there a way to make the instrument lights stay bright all the time?
Thank You in Advance for your help.

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.

Speedometer lights on the dashboard


I'd think maybe a failing rheostat in the instrument panel.

The dash board light by speedometer only lights up on the side by the fuel gauge, so it's difficult to read the speed at night. How do I fix this?


You need to take out your instrument cluster and replace the light bulbs. I can't tell you how to change the cluster on your model but you can get a Haynes manual ($25) from the auto parts store that will explain how.

Speedometer doest work how do i fix


You dont have to replace the cluster. Just replace the stepper motors. They are not difficult to do. I replace three of them and all the light bulbs in my 2004 gmc just yesterday ,, It took me three hrs from start to finish. The light bulbs are more difficult to replace than the stepper motors. Stepper motors are available on e bay for 6 bucks.

Re: instrument panel lighting during daylight hrs


The Body Control Module is the problem.Models with black faced gauges are most noticeable. Also,on rainy,foggy,or overcast days, the headlights will come on,but the instrument panel lights do not.GM states these condition are "normal" and refuses warranty service-Document ID# 1530511
