I can not give you details, but your probably going to have to find the screws/panel fasteners and take the instrument cluster off. This may require removing the entire dash piece over the cluster.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

2004 chevy tahoe instrument cluster (parking brake & abs lights don't come on at all. There are no codes either. Are there specific fuses associated with these bulbs in the instrument cluster?


Hello the Chevy and the GMC are bad for the resistors breaking of the dash easy fix, but they are also bad for the pin bulbs burning out. So if you know anyone that can solder this is a cheap fix can get the bulbs on ebay but personally find someone that can do a good job and go with led bulbs they will last longer and better, but with all the issues i see you may want to look into a new cluster

I have a 02' Buick Rendezvous and some of the instrument cluster lights have burned out. I want to know how to change the bulbs. Thanks.


You really can't change the bulbs unless you now how to solder. They are LED and mounted directly to the board.

Air bag light bulb change


Airbag SENSOR light bulb? Do you mean the airbag system warning lamp in the instrument cluster?

That all depends on the YEAR and MODEL of your Lincoln. (which you did not mention)

Some newer vehicles have LED's that are an integral part of the instrument cluster. If those go out, you must replace the entire cluster to fix it. Otherwise, the instrument cluster must be removed so the bulb can be replaced.

How do i change the indicator bulbs cant get to them


Indicator bulbs for what? If you are talking about indicator bulbs in your instrument cluster, you must remove the instrument cluster to replace them. Then, it depends on what kind of car you are talking about. Some of the newer instrument clusters use non-replaceable, LED lamps. When these fail, the entire instrument cluster must be replaced or shipped out for repair.

How do I change the bulbs in the instrument panel?


I thought I had that problem on an 02 outback, so I googled and looked on youtube and found some folks who had pictures and videos of themselves pulling the radio and instrument cluster out so they could replace the bulbs. I even bought new bulbs. Then I discovered the cluster light dimmer switch on the turn signal stem and I just turned them on! So I know you can find this on youtube and a google search, so look there.

Have a 2002 toyata corolla that needs a bulb in the dashbord,,, speedometer will not light up but the check engine and oil light and all that come on when fist put the key in... how hard is it to change a...


you dont need a bulb. its the entire instrument cluster. in some vehicles they tend to get pricey i suggest getting a LED strip and aim it towards the cluster. hook the LED up to a switch so you can turn it on and off. thats about all you can do. unless you feel like buying the cluster.

Lights on gas gauge not lighting on 2006 Honda CR-V. Help! Thanks.


You can replace the instrument cluster bulb with a regular halogen bulb like Sierra said, or use T5 led bulbs that come in a variety of colors (white, blue, etc.) They are inexpensive and will last a lot longer than the regular halogen bulbs.

Replacing the faulty bulbs isn't too hard for DIY.

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".
