Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner

Open Question

How do you replace the dashboard light bulbs on 1998 Toyota 4Runner? I number of bulbs have gone out, including the lighting behind the heater/AC control panel, with the exception of the actual AC button located at the bottom left of the panel, as well as the light for the automatic transmision gear shift. My wife has a 98 Toyota Camary and some of the bulbs are burned out on her dash as well. Thanks !

The control panel is held in by 4 clips, one at each corner. You need a long, flat tool, preferably hard nylon, insert it at the bottom corners & pry backwards, ther clips will release, and you then pull the top towards you to release the 2 top clips. The bulbs are on the back of the control assembly. Don't use a screwdriver, it will damage the material around the panel.

SOURCE: Replacment of a dash light. Toyota Corolla 1998

There is a plastic garnish surrounding the instrument cluster held in by 2 philips head screws. remove the screws and gently pry the garnish from top first then sides then it should pull out.

Then remove the 3 screws holding the cluster in place (2 bottom 1 top). Once that is done gently flip the cluster bottom up and pull out some to expose the wiring harness. Remove the 3 connectors from the back and then the cluster will pull out.

There are 3 bulbs that control the overall lighting of the cluster. They are spaced about every third across the rear of the cluster. They are the larger Green knobs. Remove the 3 large green knobs and replace the bulbs with the appropriate size. You can call your local parts store to find out the size.

Its a 5 minute job and does not require the entire removal of the dash board.

SOURCE: i have a 94 toyota 4runner that needs an engine.

it depends, is it a 4cyl or 6cyl truck? If its a 4cyl, its a 22RE engine, any engine from 84 till I think 99 or 2000 will fit, the big thing is the wiring, if you just need the block and head, it should work. bolt everything else up and slap it in. should take about 4 or 5 hours depending on how much you know about engines. If its a 6cyl...your on your own.

The left side dash light is out on the air conditioning/heater guage on the panel. How do I replace that bulb?


The LED bulbs on the AC/FAN cluster can be replaced. However, if you go to a dealer, they'll want to replace the entire cluster.

There are forums that can show you step by step LED bulb replacements that require only a simple trip to Radio Shack to get a soldering gun, some LED bulbs and a solder extractor (for the old stuff that melts off).

Here's a link to a step-by-step bulb replacement with pictures:

The lights behind the clock and tempurature indicator ahve gone out.


The bulbs can be purchased at the dealer but getting to them to replace them can be a big job, especially on newer cars. Might have to be done at the dealer, an indipendant shop probably won't know how to remove the delicate dashboard pieces and they're not cheap to replace. The truck is only 4 years old, they might be covered under warentee.

My instrument panel lights went out and I need the bulbs. How many bulbs do i need? Also the lights where the knobs for the heating/ac are out also is that the same as the instrument panel? I have a 1998...


are you sure that your fuses are all good?because it's highly impossible for all off your dash lights and your heater/a/c light burn out at the same time.and yes it is controlled all together.make sure that your dimmer switch is not turned all the way down cause this will cause them to not work.i believe that the dashboard alone has either 3 or 4 bulbs so im pretty sure it has to be a fuse or your dimmer switch.please try these options first ok. hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny

2005 Toyota 4Runner AC temp. control lights are not working.


I am going to guess that the peanut bulb in the knob is burned out.

I had a similar problem with my 2003 4Runner and changed the bulb and it worked fine.

The dealer told me it would take about 8 hours to change the 3 dollar bulb. I looked in my manual and it took me between 5 and 10 minutes tops.

I don't remember what the bulb number is. I do know that I had to get it from a Toyota dealer and not a regular auto parts store.

Hope this helps.

How to replace bulbs for ac/ heater control unit


1. Remove the dash around radio (just clips)
2. Remove 2 screws pointing up . (You do not need to remove screws which are parallel to the floor)
3. Remove screw pointing up on the bottom of the dashboard on left side of the driver (near left leg).
4. Remove 2 screws pointing up in the instrument cluster area.
5. Put car in 1st gear and gently remove black plastic surrounding instruments (it will have ait vents, so slide it carefully out not to damage foam insulation on air ducts; start on the bottom hear steering column) ; unplug connectors to clock and emergency flashers.
6. Remove 2 screws, now exposed, near instrument area, holding dashboard. (that was what I spent most time on, I didn't know about this screws.
7. Now gently remove (or move up) dashboard (around instrument cluster and heating controls.) Start next to ignition (careful not to damage the bulb next to the ignition.
Since you only need to get to the heating controls block, I only move up the dashboard next to it.
8. Remove 2 screws that hold the heating control and slide heating control out . This step is unnecessary If you totally removed the dashboard.
9. Pull out lever controls for fan speed, zone and temp
10. Use the screwdriver (flat) to pry 2 plastic tabs on top and on the bottom of heating control so black cover can be remover.
11. You did it! two bulbs are going to be under the cover.

Lights in the dashboard


Check operation & wiring at light control rheostat (left side of dash) & If everything else with electrical is OK, sounds like the bulbs may have simply blown. You will have to pull out instrument cluster to get at the bulbs.

4runner dashboard light


pull the knobs off of the switch, start in the lower right hand corner and gently pry with a screwdriver the control faceplate. as it lifts work it to the left and lift. the a/c button goes hrough this plate and will start coming out as the plate lifts, just pull it straight out. perform a similar operation on the clear plastic that is under the face. the bulb is right there and is just pulled right out. you may have to carefully remove the green cover on the bulb to transfer to the new one

You need to replace the bulbs behind the heater control. The bulbs have rather large filaments, and hitting the control sometimes makes the filaments "weld themselves" back together for a short time. I would not suspect a short or a loose wire.
