    I went to the Toyota Parts Dept and ordered the small bulbs tonight. $3 or $4 each. There are 2 on the left side and one on the right side inside that small panel area. You have to go in and remove a screw at the bottom of the front dash area and then the individual front parts can be removed. They are like small LED lights. They will be in on Friday and I will probably have the part number then. IamBerni@comcast.net

Check engine light bulb is blown how do I replace it


In order to answer your question, I went to "e-bay" and looked up instrument clusters for your vehicle.
As I suspected, the bulbs are "peanut" bulbs, and they press into a small plastic socket, that twists off and back on the rear of the instrument cluster panel.
I don't think you will be able to change that bulb without removing the whole instrument panel cluster from the dash.
I might be wrong.
Look up under the dashboard and see if the back of the cluster is easy for you to see and get your hand up to.
If so, good.
God bless your efforts.

There are small replaceable bulbs behind the instrument cluster, they are installed in twist lock sockets usually, you have to pull the instrument panel to change them, #194 is a common dash bulb

I have a '99 Solara and want to change the light bulbs that illuminate the three control knobs for heater,fan and directional. Does the front console panel snap on and off or are there some hidden screws?...


Correct. This panel is held on tightly and plastic interior pryors help. One it is started tho it will come off. Some control knobs come off too. The heaterr controller once out then needs to be taken apart carefully to reveal the little bulbs. These are unique bulbs not run of the mill. I don't think they are the same as the dash bulbs.hth

NO LIGHT DO NOT SEE TIME


You don't say which vehicle it is or whether the clock is built into the dashboard or is included on the instrument panel. (a) If it's built into the dashboard separately from the instrument panel, you need to remove the clock from the dashboard surround (it may just be a push-fit so if you can see the outer edges of the clock module try GENTLY using a small flat blade to ease the clock out of its receptacle). Once removed from the dashboard, disconnect the wiring plug, then look for a small bulb unit in the back of the clock module. Replace the bulb with a new one, reconnect the wiring connector and test that the clock lights up when the ignition is switched on before re-inserting the module back into its original location on the dashboard. (b) if the clock is part of the instrument panel, you will need to remove the instrument panel in order to get access to the relevant bulb (which will probably be on the rear of the instrument cluster directly adjacent to the location of the clock).

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.

Honda odyssy in dash clock light failure2004


There is a bulb in the clock but you will have to remove the instrument cluster to get to it. This involves removing some molded trim panels around the steering column and it is not very easy. Yeah, I don't think Honda could have made changing a clock light bulb any harder.

For the error code on your stereo--look in your paper work you got when you purchased the car and see if you can find a radio code in there. Check the owner's manual for a sticker with the code stuck on a page. You'll need to input the code to get your stereo to turn on. Don't have or can't find? You may have to remove the radio to get the serial number on it and call your local Honda dealer.

Instrument panel lighting on 1999 suburban


Changing the bulbs can be a difficult task, involving the removal of some of the dash panel and such. Check the fuses as it is doubtful that all the bulbs have gone bad at once.
