You will find you have to remove the entire instrument cluster, there are many bulbs plugged into the back of it. Look on youtube and you may find a video as to how to pull the cluster.

Replace check engine light bulb


Take out instrument panel completely. Remove all bulbs and hold the panel up to the sun while looking at the back of it. You will see where each warning/info bulb goes.

How to replace light bulb on a clock 2004 Honda Odessey


Here are the steps:

1. Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
2. Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
3. Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.

Here are the details:

FIRST - Disconnect the battery. Be careful to locate the radio security code and radio station memory locations before you disconnect though. I chose to disconnect the ground (black wire) from the battery. Be careful to put the cable away from the battery terminal.



Step 1: Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
a. Put on your parking break. You'll want to prevent the car from moving because you will soon put the car in gear.
b. Put your keys and turn to the starting position (but don't try to start the car). This allows the gear lever to move.
c. Move the gear shift to lowest gear. This puts the gear shift lever to a place nearly out of the way of the panel so that you can pry it out.
d. Using bare hands, pull smartly on the plastic edge closest to the steering wheel. Pry out the panels by hand as they are both held by tabs. This is hardest to do the first time. Keep in mind that these are pieces of plastic, so be careful. Once panels are out, let them dangle. You only need access to the instrument panel screws.

Step 2: Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
e. Remove the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.
o Two on left of steering wheel
o Two on top of instrument cluster (upside-down)
o Four on right side of steering wheel
f. Wiggle/pry out the instrument cluster panel. Be careful as the center is held in stronger than the sides. In addition to screws, there are different tabs that assist in holding this in place.
g. Before removing the instrument cluster panel, disconnect the clock and emergency light electrical connectors. While the clock connector disconnects easily, the emergency light has a locking tab that needs to be pushed in to disconnect. I used a small screwdriver to push in the tab to get the connector to disconnect.
h. Remove the instrument panel. Turn it over and locate the clock's protective cover.
i. Open the clock's protective cover by loosening the tabs. Be very gentle to these tabs.
j. Once the cover is removed locate the light bulb.

Step 3: Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
k. Unscrew the light bulb and remove.
l. Install the new light bulb. Check the light bulb before you install it. Be careful when rotating the new light bulb. in place. I've read in other posts that the light bulbs are VERY sensitive. I used a small screwdriver with plastic on the head to screw the light bulb. in.
m. Replace the clock's protective cover.
o. Reconnect the clock and emergency light's electrical connectors.

Step 4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
p. Fit the instrument cluster panel back into it's original position. Be careful with the fan vents. I suggest aligning the fan vents first, then fitting the panel.
q. Screw in the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.

Step 5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.
r. Push both panels back into place.
s. Move the gear shift lever back to park.
t. Remove the car key.
u. [Optional - disengage the parking brake]

LAST - Reconnect the battery.

TEST - Reinsert your keys and turn them to the starting position (but don't start the car). The clock light should light up.

Note: Because the power has been reset, you will need to enter the factory stereo code and reset your radio stations.

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.

NO LIGHT DO NOT SEE TIME


You don't say which vehicle it is or whether the clock is built into the dashboard or is included on the instrument panel. (a) If it's built into the dashboard separately from the instrument panel, you need to remove the clock from the dashboard surround (it may just be a push-fit so if you can see the outer edges of the clock module try GENTLY using a small flat blade to ease the clock out of its receptacle). Once removed from the dashboard, disconnect the wiring plug, then look for a small bulb unit in the back of the clock module. Replace the bulb with a new one, reconnect the wiring connector and test that the clock lights up when the ignition is switched on before re-inserting the module back into its original location on the dashboard. (b) if the clock is part of the instrument panel, you will need to remove the instrument panel in order to get access to the relevant bulb (which will probably be on the rear of the instrument cluster directly adjacent to the location of the clock).

Do the instrument light panels have a fuse and if they don't come on what is the problem?


Yes, look in your manual for the location. If fuse checks out fine... it's a bulb. I've been driving my ford around now without center console lights because I'm too lazy to replace the bulb.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix how to replace burned out panel light


It could be one of two problems. It's kinda hard to explain. The Instrument panel wiring is seperated in two. It could be a bulb. Or the wiring in the panel could have a short. (like mine did) If you know any electrical. You can fix it. You have to take out the panel to see what it could be. If it's the bulb then your golden. When you take out the panel you will see how the wiring is. (it looks like the rear defrost lines on your back window). If it's the wiring then you will have to use a piece of speaker wire about 6 inches long. And use it to jumper power from a good bulb to where the bad side of the panel is.
