Check engine light bulb is blown how do I replace it


In order to answer your question, I went to "e-bay" and looked up instrument clusters for your vehicle.
As I suspected, the bulbs are "peanut" bulbs, and they press into a small plastic socket, that twists off and back on the rear of the instrument cluster panel.
I don't think you will be able to change that bulb without removing the whole instrument panel cluster from the dash.
I might be wrong.
Look up under the dashboard and see if the back of the cluster is easy for you to see and get your hand up to.
If so, good.
God bless your efforts.

2004 ford explorer engine trouble light wiring diagram


The trouble light is in the instrument cluster.behind dash gauges.,BE SURE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY BEFORE REMOVING ANY PART OF DASH..Use safety glasses.,The cluster is attached to the back of gauges..Be VERY CAREFUL If you remove it ..Very Fragile and easy to damage..!!....Older vehicles have a more simple cluster with bulbs that can be replaced or removed..Or leave out and never have a trouble light again..I doubt if your vehicle has a simple bulb however it is possible...If you just wanted the light to go off forever there is a chance you could remove the cluster and it will have a simple small removable bulb..I would ask a Dealer Tech....The cluster is like a map or a weird racetrack..lights for each instrument are located on the pathway...You may could crush the tiny area where light is if it doesn't have a bulb that can be removed but it may interfere with other lights on the cluster pathway or perhaps DISABLE THE COMPLETE CLUSTER..I DONT RECOMMEND CRUSHING ANY PART OF CLUSTER.!!,,However I have seen it done..Some lights are made into the pathway and can't be removed and some are just removable bulbs..Your vehicle could have both type pending on location of your problem light..I have seen many replaceable bulbs located at the bottom of instrument clusters on Heavy Ford Trucks.., however the center lights cant be replaced..Especially if it is all digital..!!..Look for a close up photo of the rear of your instrument cluster on a computer and you will see what I am describing...You may just have a very small plug in bulb..It may be a good idea to ask a Dealership Tech.....Good Luck...

How do i change the indicator bulbs cant get to them


Indicator bulbs for what? If you are talking about indicator bulbs in your instrument cluster, you must remove the instrument cluster to replace them. Then, it depends on what kind of car you are talking about. Some of the newer instrument clusters use non-replaceable, LED lamps. When these fail, the entire instrument cluster must be replaced or shipped out for repair.

How do you change dash lights


Dash lights are replaced from the rear of the cluster or control thats out, take note that some of these newwer cars and trucks have clusters that the bulbs are part of the electronic curcuit boad and cant be replaced, the whole unit would need to be replaced, this is something you wont know until the cluster is removed, there are many lights behind the cluster, a trick i learned is to remove a bulb you untwist it and it pops out, then pull the bulb from the socket and install a new bulb into socket, then line up slots on socket push in and twist to lock, the trick is there are a lot of bulbs so remove the bulb and then shine a liight throuh the hole and look at the front of the cluster to see if its a night light or a symbol to see if its the correct light. hope this helps, good luck.

How do you change the dash lights on the instrument panel?


The dash lights go into the rear of the instrument panel cluster which means that you have to remove the panel to replace them. I believe you have to first remove the trim from around the cluster [usually it's held in by plastic clips] then there are a few screws that hold the cluster assembly to the dash. Once these are out the cluster can be removed and the bulbs replaced. I always replace all the bulbs since it seems that once one bulb fails the rest start to fail soon afterwards.

Need to replace instrument cluster/AC bulbs


Hello, You can obtain a 2004 Ram Factory Service Manual with all of that information available from Promanuals.net. The reason why it may be so important is because right before the removal instructions the service manual has diagnostic instructions to try. There are numerous pages on removing the instrument cluster, and cluster bezel.

(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable. (For Airbag)

(2) Remove the cluster bezel from the instrument
panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/INSTRUMENT PANEL/
CLUSTER BEZEL - REMOVAL).

(3) Remove the four screws that secure the instrument
cluster to the instrument panel structural support
(Fig. 5).

(4) Pull the instrument cluster rearward far
enough to access and disconnect the instrument
panel wire harness connectors for the cluster from
the connector receptacles on the back of the cluster
housing.

(5) Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument
panel.
