Question about 2000 Toyota Avalon
2001 Avalon XLS, with no backlight on odometer. One dealership says to replace the complete module (cluster?). Another says it is a bulb to replace, just difficult to get to. What is the truth on this car and can I do it myself?
It is a bulb thats true but dealer said it could be the module as the printed circuits burn out where the bullb twist connects

I replaced the bulbs, there are four bulbs for the odometer. If they all stopped at the same time it is not likely to be the bulbs. It is a very lenghty repair. I got my information about the process at http://wiki.answers.com/Q/FAQ/981 . If you decide to do it, get the 4 bulbs before you open up the dash. You will want to have the bulbs when you start. I would also get some of the other 2 bulb types (there are 3 bulb types in that area) so you can replace them if any are bad. Cliff
