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.

Hi, it's possible the bulb is burned out or not making good contact with the circuit board. It should come on during the bulb check when you first turn the key on. Pull out the cluster and check the bulb. If it's good, see if you can clean the contact surfaces to get it working again. Or, move to another state where they don't worry about stupid things like a light bulb.

How to change bulbs in instrument cluster. The left half of the instrument panel lights up. The right half (speedometer, oil pressure, fuel) does not. I assume a bulb has burned out. How do I change...


Take out the screws holding the instrument panel in, pull it gently away from the dash being careful not to unplug or pull out any wires. there should be a plastic retainer that you and pull off to get at the bulbs.replace the blown bulbs and reinstall the panel..

My odometer light/bulb is blown, if its not the bulb could it be the fuse? if its the bulb how do i replace it?


It's the bulb. You have to pull the instrument panel cluster to get at it. The following directions are from Haynes 829 for the 1982 through 1990 Buick Century, but are probably applicable to your vehicle as well.
  1. Disconnect the negative cable at the battery.
  2. Remove the left side dashboard trim panels.
  3. Remove the cluster retaining screws.
  4. Disconnect the speedometer cable.
  5. Pull the cluster out, disconnect the wiring and remove it from the instrument panel.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal.
The bulb is most likely in a socket set into the flexible circuit panel, and is removed by twisting the socket 1/4 turn counter-clockwise. The bulb is probably a wedge-base type that pulls straight out of the socket.

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.
