Tilt down the tailgate and you should be able to locate the screws for the globe assembly.

SOURCE: my led odometer, temperature and trip indicator

Yes, this is a bulb specific to the odometer area .

Find some directions online for a gauge overlay to remove the cluster from the dash, and the bulb is in a quarter twist holder right behind the odometer.

There are some threads at F150online.com, in the technical articles / How to forum for the cluster overlay that might help with removing the cluster.

Replace the odometer bulb 2005 equinox


There isn't a bulb back there any more. It is a LED (light emitting diode). They can be replaced. Soldered in. It is either a bulb type, two leads that have to be remove from the back side of the PC board. Or a surface mount that has to be removed from the front of the PC board. The bulb type is easy, the surface mount is about than 1/8 X 1/16 inch square.

How much cost replace odometer bulb


Hello... You normally can"t just replace a bulb on the odometer. You have to replace the whole instrument panel. You might be able to find one at a junk yard...

Good Luck...

Odometer back light not functioning on a 2005 Ford F 150


IF the odometer numbers work correctly, and this is the back light when the parking lamps are on, the bulb is burnt out.

In this picture, the odometer backlight bulb is the 1/4 turn bulb holder that is removed in the lower left hand corner.

2005 Saturn Vue, no light in odometer, is odometer working?All other lights working on dash.


Hi:
the dash has seven or eight small bulbs illuminating the entire area, and approx 3 of them are for the speedometer/odometer area.

It seems odd that those are the first to go, but most likely the problem.
It often requires removal of the instrument cluster to swap bulbs. not too bad, but sometimes tricky.

Odometer Light


I have a 2005 Equinox and recently had the problem with the odometer bulb going out. Only the bulb needs to be replaced--NOT THE ENTIRE CLUSTER!! The process to remove and replace the bulb is a simple one. First tilt the steering wheel out of place, pull bezel straight out carefully, and with 7mm screw head remove the four mounting screws and pull cluster out. Disconnect cluster and remove burnt out bulb by giving it a counter clockwise quarter turn. Insert new bulb and turn it clockwise quarter turn. Plug in cluster again, insert the mounting screws, replace bezel. Very simple. The bulb replacement that I used was different than the original but has the same voltage and watts--the old one had a white base with frosted cover, while the new one had a beige base and clear--which made the new light brighter but very workable. I used 39118 Bulb 20210B24 DE66K2 12V 1.5w or this one should work: http://www.rmeuropean.com/Part-Number/Bulb-12V---15W-with-Beige-Socket-Base-for-Dashboard-Instruments-__62111391260_OSR_2439488A.aspx . I hope this helps..

Odometer light faded away still working but no light, how do I fix this problem The answer we need is how to replace this bulb. The back light on my LED odometer is not lighting up either.


This is not LED but LCD, this means it has no light emitting capability of it's own, there is a back bulb light behind it, you will have to pull the cluster out to replace that odometer back light bulb.
