You have to remove the instrument cluster and replace the bulbs from the back by twisting to remove their cap holders.

SOURCE: dash board lights out and tail lights working intermittently

Looks like a bad headlamp switch. Poor contact inside the switch contacts will cause this issue.

The instrument dial needles in my Cefiro have become very hard to see. They're dark red and thin and just don't show up (day or night). This has become progressively worse over the years. Is there a way...

If you can get the Perspex face off the dash panel and you use a very fine paint brush you may be able to paint the pointers with a anti collision orange paint > this tends to reflect any light and would be visible with dash lights on. IF you cannot get to the pointers easily then a replacement dash unit may be the answer.

1998 Lumina lights don't work at night!The lights work during the day but not at night. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Theres a sensor in the middle of the dash by the front windshield that detects sunlight and triggers the automatic headlights. The main headlights and daytime running lights might be on a different circuit, in which case they daytime running lamps would turn off at night and the main headlights would turn on, indicating the main headlights arent working and the daytime running lamps are working as intended.

I would check all the fuses related to headlights, check the bulbs and check the switch, then last the light sensor on the dash.

How to replace thermostate

sounds kind of unclear but my assumption is ure looking for the thermistor which basically makes ure cabin blower work at different speeds and base on that it should always be close to the blower itself by below the dash on the passenger side or near the middle under dash, and maybe even behind glovebox in rare instances, but if u meant thermostat then that should be on the engine compartment by the right side radiator hose assy if looking directly in front of ure car looking to the back.

The fuel and battery gauges are difficult to see when the dash lights are in use at night, yet the rest of the gauges are plainly visible.

sounds like some of the bulbs that are on the back of the cluster are burned will need to remove the spedo housing and replace the bulbs.
