No. Not dealer only. Pull instrument cluster and check for good power and ground in the connector. If you find that, locate a speedometer/cluster rebuilder online. Send it off and they'll completely rebuild it. Usually costs around $200. Then just reinstall

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.

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.

SOME OF THE DASH LIGHTS DON'T WORK WHILE OTHERS DO. IS THE A FUSE PROBLEM?


Hi:
All of dash lights are on the same circuit. There are around 7 small bulbs that illuminate the dash instrument cluster, and they can burn out individually. If the situation gets bad enough that you are struggling with seeing it at night, the instrument cluster must be removed to replace the bulbs. I recommend changing every bulb when you do this.

2001 FordEscape- dash trans indicator appears to be LCD type, will not illuminate at nigh when park/headlights turned on..other dash illumiination lights work OK


this is a pretty simple fix, even though the screen is LCD, the illumination is from a small bulb on the back side of the instrument cluster. pull the instrument cluster out, and replace the bulb!
