    Thanks! I ordered them from the Toyota dealer, and all 7 bulbs were $30. My husband was able to replace them on his own, so it turned out well. And you're right about no one having them, Auto Zone and Advance said the same thing, they couldn't get them anywhere and they also said only the dealer could get them.

  • Wrick01 Jan 24, 2009

    What did your husband have to do to replace the bulbs? Did you just need to remove the knobs or dissassemble the dashboard?

    Thanks

    I replaced a bulb in the gauge cluster because it was burnt out, and now none of the bulbs work. Did I blow a fuse?

     I REPLACED THE BULBS MY SELF. YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THE TRAY OUT UNDER THE DASH THE ONE THAT POPS OUT AND PUSH IN THERE IS  ONE OR TWO SCREWS THERE ONCE THAT IS DONE YOU CAN PULL THE PART OUT THE AC CONTROLS ARE PART OF THE PANNEL JUST TO LET YOU KNOW THEY COME OUT AS A UNIT. DISCONNECT THE PLUG AND THEN YOU CAN PUT THE BULBS IN ON THE KITCHEN TABLE IF YOUR WIFE WILL LET YOU GOOD LUCK. BY THE WAY TOYOTA IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS THE LAMPS THEY ARE ABOUT 4 OR 5 DOLLARS EACH, IF I REMEMBER I THINK THERE ARE 6 BULBS ALL TOGETHER.

How do I remove dashboard to get to instrument panel to replace bulbs?


You will need a cross point screw driver

  • 1 Remove the two screws on the underside of the top of the trim panel surrounding the dash and instrument panel.
  • 2 Pull the trim piece off the dash.
  • 3 Remove the four screws that hold the instrument panel in the dashboard using a cross point screwdriver.
  • 4 Slide the dashboard instrument panel forward and disconnect the electrical connector from the back of the dashboard.
  • 5 Turn the instrument panel over.
  • 6 Turn the base of the dashboard light bulb counterclockwise to unlock it from the instrument panel and pull it out of the panel to remove it.
  • 7 Insert a new light bulb into the back of the panel, and turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into the panel.
  • 8 Plug the electrical connector back into the instrument panel and slide the panel back into the dashboard.
  • 9 Secure the panel with the factory mounting screws and replace the trim and trim-mounting screws using a screwdriver.

    Interior light control


    First remove the bezel around your instrument panel.From there locate the 7mm hex shape screws that secure the panel to the dash. Unplug all the connectors on the back of the cluster and remove the unit from the vehicle. You will see several black and a few grey buttons. They look like micro miniture gas caps. Turn them counter clockwise to remove them. You will see mini bulbs attached to them. basically these are the sockets for your instrument panel guages. Replace burnt out bulbs as needed.

    I have no dash lights on my 4runner and cant find any burnt out fuses. Is it likely that the light itself is burnt out?


    There are several bulbs in the dash that come on with the headlight switch so it is unlikely that they all burnt out at the same time.I would check the instrument light dimmer switch for power in and out of it before blameing dash bulbs.You should check the plug to the light switch to check for power out of it and to look for burnt wire ends.

    I need to replace the check engine bulb, it's burnt out and i've been told i have to remove the dashboard. How hard is that?


    you do not need to remove the dash, just the instrument cluster, to do this, remove the bolt in the hood latch, then the bolt on the other side of the steering column cover panel, then the panel will pop out, this will uncover two screws on the instrument cluster finish panel, remove these two screws, and the three pointing upwards in front of your gauge cluster, this panel will then come out, disconnect battery, remove the four screws and the instrument panel will come out, unlpug it, check to see which bulb is the service light, and replace!

    You can remove panel screws, remove and pull back dash panel, then you will find a couple more screws that holds on instrument panel Remove these screws, pull back panel and you can see the bulbs. They turn and pull out.

    It seems that the bulbs went out or the ribbon cable that runs behind the instrument panel burned out check on a junkyard for a replacement instrument panel and replace it, verify that the truck you pull out the instrument cluster is the same year and the same model.

    How do you replace the lamp in the instrument panel on a Toyota 2000 4 runner


    hi....
    Its not a quick job. You need to remove the instrument panel. Once removed the bulbs simple twice a quarter turn and you can replace them. removing the instrument panel varies on different cars, often you can do it without removing the steering wheel. You would normally take off the plastic under the steering wheel. lower the steering wheel as far as it will go. there should then be screws holding in the plastic around the instrument panel.

    Replacment of a dash light. Toyota Corolla 1998


    There is a plastic garnish surrounding the instrument cluster held in by 2 philips head screws. remove the screws and gently pry the garnish from top first then sides then it should pull out.

    Then remove the 3 screws holding the cluster in place (2 bottom 1 top). Once that is done gently flip the cluster bottom up and pull out some to expose the wiring harness. Remove the 3 connectors from the back and then the cluster will pull out.

    There are 3 bulbs that control the overall lighting of the cluster. They are spaced about every third across the rear of the cluster. They are the larger Green knobs. Remove the 3 large green knobs and replace the bulbs with the appropriate size. You can call your local parts store to find out the size.

    Its a 5 minute job and does not require the entire removal of the dash board.
