Try giving the dash a slap with the palm of your hand above the guages on the dash board to see if they will illuminate

Insturment panel is not working


An instrument cluster is the collection of gauges, dials and lights right above the steering wheel that tell you what's going on in your vehicle.
Generally, your car's instrument cluster will last the lifetime of the car and you'll never have a problem with any of them. However, when one of them fail, you'll have a problem that ranges from mildly annoying (the engine lights up and doesn't turn off) to inconvenient (the gas gauge doesn't register) to dangerous (the oil indicator doesn't work). Some of the more common failures include:
  • Erratic or non-functional gauges & inaccurate readings.
  • LCD not Stuck or fluttering needles on gauges
  • Burned out indicator lights
  • Burned out/dark spot backlighting
  • Loss of LCD display or erratic operation (number 8 showing as 0

The backlight for the lcd display on the odometer has burned out, it's a common problem on the newer F series trucks.
It's not normally a "serviceable" part, since the backlight is a pair of bulbs soldered into the instrument cluster circuit board. However, if you're confident in your soldering skills, you could replace the bulbs but most people replace the instrument cluster with a working one from another truck (junkyard)

1995 Lexus ES 300 Instrument light and O/D off


The bulbs are replaceable you need to remove the instrument gauge assembly to get to the bulbs.As for the blinking o/d light that usually means there is a problem.That should be looked at by some one with diagnostic tools.
