You must remove the instrument clustwer from the dash to access the bulbs, $50.00 is a great price, we charge 1 hour labor. which is $135.00 here in CA.

Hey on my 2008 chevy impala my my speedometer light doesn't glow at night. All of the gauges around it does but it doesn't. We checked and replaced fuses but it still does not glow any advice.


It is most likely the bulb behind the instrument cluster specifically for the speedometer are. You must remove the cluster and replace the bulb. If there is no bulb then you will need to replace the cluster. I would call the dealer prior to determine if they sell a bulb for your cluster.

I need to fix Dash air vent light -Left side - that goes on and off- How due I remove the bulb and check the wiring?


Check out the "Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs" section below:

2002 Volkswagen Passat - Repair Manual - Chassis Electrical (excerpt)

Dome/Map/Cargo Light

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its retaining clip contacts. If the bulb has tapered ends, gently depress the spring clip/metal contact and disengage the light bulb, then pull it free of the two metal contacts.

To install:
  1. Before installing the light bulb into the metal contacts, ensure that all electrical conducting surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  2. Insert the bulb into the holder. If the contacts have small holes, be sure that the tapered ends of the bulb are situated in them.
  3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
  4. Install the cover until its retaining tabs are properly engaged.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs
The instrument clusters installed on these models are one of 2 types and distinguished by the instrument lighting color, either green or blue.
On models with green instrumentation, only the control light bulbs are replaceable. Should any other failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.
On models with blue instrumentation, none of the components are replaceable. Should a failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.

Map Lights
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its electrical connector.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal.

How do you change dash lights


Dash lights are replaced from the rear of the cluster or control thats out, take note that some of these newwer cars and trucks have clusters that the bulbs are part of the electronic curcuit boad and cant be replaced, the whole unit would need to be replaced, this is something you wont know until the cluster is removed, there are many lights behind the cluster, a trick i learned is to remove a bulb you untwist it and it pops out, then pull the bulb from the socket and install a new bulb into socket, then line up slots on socket push in and twist to lock, the trick is there are a lot of bulbs so remove the bulb and then shine a liight throuh the hole and look at the front of the cluster to see if its a night light or a symbol to see if its the correct light. hope this helps, good luck.

Instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace


It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

Need to replace instrument cluster/AC bulbs


Hello, You can obtain a 2004 Ram Factory Service Manual with all of that information available from Promanuals.net. The reason why it may be so important is because right before the removal instructions the service manual has diagnostic instructions to try. There are numerous pages on removing the instrument cluster, and cluster bezel.

(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable. (For Airbag)

(2) Remove the cluster bezel from the instrument
panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/INSTRUMENT PANEL/
CLUSTER BEZEL - REMOVAL).

(3) Remove the four screws that secure the instrument
cluster to the instrument panel structural support
(Fig. 5).

(4) Pull the instrument cluster rearward far
enough to access and disconnect the instrument
panel wire harness connectors for the cluster from
the connector receptacles on the back of the cluster
housing.

(5) Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument
panel.

Check engine light does not turn on at all


The bulb is probably loose and/or burnt out. If you are mechanically inclined you can tackle this job... This procedure is the one i use, most often it's the blue high beam indicator bulb that goes so if you want to change it while your in there.....(hint hint)
Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Wait a good 2 minutes to allow for air bag deactivation...NOTE: USE CAUTION ...Lower the tilt wheel to lowest position.
Remove the cluster bezel from the instrument panel.
Remove the two screws that secure the upper mounting tabs of the instrument cluster to the underside of the instrument cluster hood formation of the instrument panel top pad.
Remove the two screws that secure the lower mounting tabs of the instrument cluster to the instrument panel structural duct.
Pull the upper mounting tabs of the instrument cluster downward, then pull the instrument cluster rearward far enough to access the instrument panel wire harness connector for the instrument cluster. Disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector for the instrument cluster from the connector receptacle on the back of the instrument cluster housing.
Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel. Now do you remember which bulb it was? You can now see where the check engine light bulb is mounted. Twist and remove, install in reverse order. In some cases they are just loose or not making good ground, but after going through this just to access that lil bugger, i'd replace it.
I hope i have helped you and if you feel i have please acknowledge.
Be well and keep the cherokees alive....

Instrument Cluster bulbs


There are no "bulbs" in it. The cluster has LED's soldered into it. Unfortunately you can't just change them. If you get a new instrument cluster, and install it, then the vehicles body control module (BCM) will go into security lock. You will need to take it to the dealer, and get it "unlocked".
