You will need to remove the cluster trim, then remove the screws holding the cluster in the dash, disconnect connectors to cluster remove and turn over on the back side you will see the bulb sockets you turn them counter clockwise and remove them the bulb pulls out and push new one in socket and put back in cluster, use flashlight to point into hole to make sure you are replacing the right one., if you look in the front while pointing light in hole that you removed the bulb you will see if thats the right light. hope this helps.

Dashlight and speedometer


Don't know the car, but sounds like a loose earth wire somewhere. check where your feet go and see if something hasn;t caught on a peddle or your foot. if you have had work done on car recently, find out where they worked and look around there.

Radio fuse


there might be a fuse for the windows i doubt it there will be one for the radio but the speedometer do you mean the light wont work or the sppedometer itself if its the speedometer itself then it is the speed sensor and the gas guage its the sending unit or if its the light then if all the other lights work and those dont then take the instrument cluster off and replace those bulbs

Car speedo & odometer sometimes work OK, other times not at all.


Most likely a speed sensor is going bad (most cars and truck do not use mechanical speedometer cables anymore) most sensors are located near the differential in rwd cars or near the drive shaft on the transmission. Best bet is to get a Haynes manual for your car to help locate the speed sensor. Remove it and take it to the auto parts store so you can visually compare it to the replacement. Install the new speed sensor and it should restore your speedometer and odometer.
