All instrument panel lights or just speedometer light? There are several bulbs behind instrument panel. More than likely, the bulb at speedometer is burned out, and can be replaced by removing instrument panel and replacing bulb(s). Hope this helps.

    Locate the bezel that holds the clear instrument cover in place. Remove the screws holding the bezel in place and remove it by pulling it straight up and away from the dashboard.

  • 3

    If possible, lower the steering wheel until it is completely tilted downward. Remove the screws holding the instrument cluster to the panel.

    Holding the top of the instrument cluster, tilt the panel toward you until you have access to the light bulbs behind the instrumental panel.

  • 5

    Locate the burned out bulb and remove it by pushing in and turning counter-clockwise to release the bulb from the socket. If the panel has multiple bulbs, consider replacing them all at once; if one is burned out, the others are likely to follow soon.

    Place a new bulb in the socket and then tilt the intrument cluster back into position, securing it with the screws.

  • 7

    Tilt the steering wheel back into its normal position and place the bezel cover back in place, securing it with screws.

    Reattach the negative battery cable to the battery and then turn on the dashboard lights to verify the new bulb is working.
