SOURCE: need to replace dash board backlights - 2004 hyundai elantra

trying to do the same on my 01. ready to change the bulb but can't find it anywhere.
anyhow, here's how you do it:

remove the dash by taking out 2 screws behind the ashtray and 2 above the instrument cluster
begin prying off the dash from the ashtray up, when you reach the heater vents stop. next take a flat head screwdriver and pry off the dash from the left side with the door open. work left to right till you reach the heater vents and it'll come right off. you don't necessarily have to unplug any of the electric connectors if you don't want to, but you;ll have to reach around the dash while working. all you need to do now is remove the heater control unit via the 4 screws around it, then unplug the electric harnesses from the back of it. make sure you remember which goes where. the bulbs are the 3 white (or is it 2 white and 1 grey) circles on the back of the control unit. just turn them with a flathead screwdriver and turn it over and give it a little bump to get 'em to fall out (or grab 'em with a needle nose pliers if necessary). anyhow, that's how it's done, question is, where do ya find the bulbs?

Dashboard cluster fuse blowing


You need to check the wiring harness to the brakes and look for bare or damaged wiring. It could also be caused by an incorrectly installed light bulb or shorted socket..

Ford ka main beam headlights blow every few months


Are you driving along rough roads with lights on? That can shorten the life of the bulbs. When the bulbs were installed were they touched on the glass part. If so that will cause them to burn out. Wipe all finger prints before installing.
Maybe you already know all the above, if so I think maybe your alternator or voltage regulator might be set to a voltage too high for the bulbs.

Hope this helps.

My dashboard light for 2002 Ford KA not working, even after replacememt


Could be the small bulbs in the speedo unit have simply blown over time . You just remove the speedo unit and they tun about 90 degrees to unscrew . They cost a few pounds and you can get different colours these days.

My odometer light wasn't working for 1 year and today it came on untill shut my truck off and it didn't come on again??? do i change the bulb? if so do i have to tear the dash apart


There is a LCD backlight bulb for the odometer, these are 1/4 turn bulb holders mounted from the back of the cluster.

You will need to remove the cluster to get to them.
F150online has a how to thread on Dashboard removal for the overlay change, which is quite detailed on topic of how to get the dash apart to gain access to the cluster.
Would put it all in here, but there is quite a bit of detail, and I don't want to skip a step.
