2001 Avalon XLS - Is bulb for odometer replaceable?

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

How can i fix my odometer on my 2002 envoy


The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed signal circuit from the engine control module (ECM). The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. The odometer displays either miles or kilometers as requested by the activation of the Personalization button on the steering wheel controls. IPC - instrument panel cluster .
Schematic Reference: Instrument Cluster Schematics

1

Did you perform the Instrument Cluster Diagnostic System Check?
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Instrument Cluster

2

?€¢
Turn the ignition ON.


?€¢
Activate the trip reset button.

Does the odometer display switch between trip and odometer?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3

3

Important: Program the replacement instrument panel cluster (IPC).
Replace the IPC. Refer to Instrument Cluster Replacement .
Did you complete the replacement?
Go to Step 4

Operate the system in order to verify the repair.
Did you correct the condition?
System OK
Go to Step 2
Install a scan tool.
Does the scan tool power up?

  1. Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
  2. Attempt to establish communication with the following control modules:
?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
Driver Door Module (DDM)


?€¢
Electronic Brake Traction Control Module (EBTCM)

Inflatable Restraint Diagnostic Module (SDM)


?€¢
Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC)

How do I DETERMAN WHAT IS WRONG my speedometer and rpm gauges aren't working


a fuse blew.
this car has an electronic dash cluster. (with brain)
first is fuses. (check them first) (2 of them)
second is scan it. scan the PCM for DTC error !

if rpm dies, for sensors the engine dies...
The PCM runs spark and injection off 2 sensor and RPM
if they die so does spark and injection.
the cluster has self test mode, try that first?
this proves the cluster is ok.
this is covered in the FSM for your JEEP

the WJ jeep
Chapter 8J covers all this.. to great details.
page 8
fuse 17 and 22 must be good. JB box, cab.

posted now 100 of times, here it is again.
quote
The instrument cluster actuator test will put the
instrument cluster into its self-diagnostic mode. In
this mode the instrument cluster can perform a selfdiagnostic
test that will confirm that the instrument
cluster circuitry, the gauges, the PCI data bus message
controlled indicators, and the electro-luminescent
illumination lamp (if equipped) are capable of
operating as designed. During the actuator test the
instrument cluster circuitry will sweep each of the
gauge needles across the gauge faces, illuminate each
of the segments in the Vacuum-Fluorescent Display
(VFD), turn all of the PCI data bus message-controlled
indicators on and off again, and turn the electro-
luminescent illumination lamp (if equipped) on
and off again.
Successful completion of the actuator test will confirm
that the instrument cluster is operational. However,
there may still be a problem with the PCI data
bus, the Powertrain Control Module, the Airbag Control
Module (ACM), the Body Control Module (BCM),
the Controller Anti-lock Brake (CAB), the Sentry Key
Immobilizer Module (SKIM), or the inputs to one of
these electronic control modules. Use a DRBIIIt scan
tool to diagnose these components. Refer to the
appropriate diagnostic information.
If an individual indicator lamp or the electro-luminescent
illumination lamp do not illuminate during
the actuator test, the instrument cluster should be
removed. However, check that the incandescent lamp
bulb is not faulty, that the bulb holder is properly
installed on the instrument cluster electronic circuit
board, or that the electro-luminescent lamp pigtail
wire connector is properly connected to the instrument
cluster electronic circuit board before considering
instrument cluster replacement. If the bulb and
bulb holder, or the electro-luminescent lamp connection
check OK, replace the faulty instrument cluster
unit.
(1) Begin the test with the ignition switch in the
Off position.
(2) Depress the odometer/trip odometer switch button.
(3) While still holding the odometer/trip odometer
switch button depressed, turn the ignition switch to
the On position, but do not start the engine.
(4) Release the odometer/trip odometer switch button.
(5) The instrument cluster will automatically
begin the actuator test sequence, as follows:
(a) The cluster will turn on, then off again each
of the PCI data bus message controlled indicators
(except Airbag) to confirm the functionality of the
indicator and the cluster control circuitry:
(b) The cluster will sweep the needles for each of
the gauges from minimum to maximum and back
to minimum to confirm the functionality of the
gauge and the cluster control circuitry:
(c) Only on models with a premium version of
the cluster, the cluster will illuminate the electroluminescent
lamp and turn it off again to confirm
the functionality of the lamp and the cluster control
circuitry.
(d) The cluster will sequentially step the odometer/
trip odometer VFD display from all zeros
(000000) through all nines (999999) to confirm the
functionality of all VFD segments and their control
circuitry, then display the software version number,
followed by "DONE".
(6) The actuator test is now completed. The instrument
cluster will automatically exit the self-diagnostic
mode and return to normal operation at the
completion of the test, if the ignition switch is turned
to the Off position during the test, or if a vehicle
speed message indicating that the vehicle is moving
is received from the PCM over the PCI data bus during
the test.
(7) Go back to Step 1 to repeat the test, if
required
end quote.


if this passes and fuses are good
then you may have DTC errors scanned
if you scan it and you see comminications error from PCM to cluster, well that be it. ... and am not going into THAT>here.

2006 Honda CR-V; had front driver's side headlamp bulb replaced and car battery replaced and now the odometer backlight doesn't work -- a related issue or separate and is it expensive to fix?


You can replace the instrument cluster bulb with a regular halogen bulb, or use T5 led bulbs that come in a variety of colors (white, blue, etc.) They are inexpensive and will last a lot longer than the regular halogen bulbs.

Replacing the faulty bulbs isn't too hard for DIY.

How do i replace the odometer cluster on a 2001 Buick Century? Odometer only light up if i hit dashboard, Then it goes out.


You dont need to replace the cluster you just need to replace the bulbs, by hitting it the bulb filment thats bad make a connection, if you remove the cluster and look at the rear of it you will see the bulbs, there are many bulbs some for the battery light and oil light, so use a flash light and when you remove a bulb shine light through the hole and see if it the correct bulb or if its a symbol bulb, most of the time the lighting bulbs use a diffrent color socket, what you do is untwist the socket then it pulls out and the bulb is on it, you then pull bulb out of socket and install new bulb on socket and twist back in, you dont need to replace the whole cluster and the bulbs are sold at any parts place, take one out and match it up it should be part # 194 bulb.

This is if the cluster lighting still works, but the display is blank. Don't know if you mean the gauges in the cluster do not work.

Odometer light not working


light bulbs for the backlighting of the guage cluster are usually on the same wire, so if there is only one of them out, it should just be that bulb is burnt out. you'll have to remove the trim panel around the guage cluster and the remove the guage cluster. there will be a bunch of bulbs on the back side of it, but approximate the location of it and visually inspect them until you find the one that is burnt out. replace it and reassemble
