You need to start at the bottom . remove the kick panel under the dash, screws. Remove the metal plate under it. Screws and nuts. Then the bezel around the cluster has screws at the bottom and screws at the top to remove. Once that is out of the way, you have 4 screws to remove to get the IP out. Pull it out a bit, to get to the plugs on the back side.

The cover-is that like a bezel? Older cars always used screws to hold the bezel in place. On lots of newer, the bezel or cover just has plastic clips that snap into holes or slots. If you see no visible screws, try pulling the cover off, starting at one end. Once the cover is off, you can see the screws that hold the cluster to the instrument panel.

The bezel around the cluster is just cliped on. You will have to set the parking brake and put the gear selector in 1st gear and pry around the bezel to release the clips. The cluster is held in with 4 7mm screws.

SOURCE: Instrument cluster not working

if its not a fuse. try a relay. itll be under the hood in a little box. if thats not it than it could be a short in the wiring.check your running lights as well. most of the time they are ran on the same fuse so if one doesnt work the other one probably wont. also if you have recently replaced your stereo. check over the wiring on it because something could have got loose.

How to replace the dashboard bulb in a 1999 plymouth voyager


Which light is out? Is it an instrument cluster light, or one on the temperature or A/C cluster? It it's an instrument cluster light, here is the process: (I'm assuming the 99 is similar to the 98) Remove the bottom dash panel under the steering wheel, remove the instrument cluster cover around the steering column. This will reveal the screws that hold your instrument cluster cover in place. Remove this cover and you can then see and remove the 4 screws holding your instrument cluster in place. Pull your instrument cluster out, remove the main wire connector, then you have access to all the instrument cluster lights on the back side. Hopefully you remember which one is out!

You will also need to swap the speedo cluster. thats where the anti theft module is located. After that you may still need to relearn the key switch.I will look at the wiring diagrams and get back to you on the starter circut in side the vehicle. You may have to change some other things.Talk to ya soon. Dan
