Question about 2003 Kia Optima
The backlight on my gauges and odometer does not work. Though in the center of the gauges the shift indicator backlight works.
I checked the "cluster" fuse and it is fine. I also checked the dimmer dial for the dashboard lights and it does not work.
If you have aftermarket lights hooked up to the dash light it has been known to smoke the rheostat that controls the dimmer. I would also check the other fuses, sometimes the cluster refers to the guages themselves and not the lights that illuminate them
