If it's just one light that went out most likely a bulb you will have to remove cluster to get to the bulb on the back side

Pls, I just got a 2000 Toyota sienna Le and I discovered that cluster light is not working, and when the full light is engaged, the car strerio backlight goes off as well. What can I do pls?


If you are meaning that the gauge cluster, IE. Speedometer, Fuel gauge, ect? The instrument gauge cluster needs to be removed and the bulbs replaced. It is not a hard job. Most panels have a plastic "beauty" bezel surrounding the Instrument cluster that MAY or MAY NOT be secured by screws. SOME just snap in place. once you get that off the instrument cluster is held in by usually 4 screws. remove the screws and it comes out. disconnect the wiring plugs, then it can come all the way out. Before you do this go to Toyota And get the bulbs. You can get them at auto parts stores too but Toyota uses bulbs that have colored coatings. You can not always get the coating off and not all(very few in my experience) parts stores have them.so just spend the few bucks more and get them from Toyota.

Hi, my 2002 toyota sienna's engine light does not come on on the dash board when you start the van. All the other indicator lights come on and then go off after a few seconds. What could be the...


The problem is a blown bulb, you will need to remove the cluster and replace the bulb. you will need to remove the cover around the cluster and then you will see the four screws holding the cluster. remove thoughs screws and pull cluster out slowly. the cluster will need to be pulled out enough to get to wiring that plugs into the rear of it. unhook the connector from the rear. with the cluster out you will see the bulbs on the rear, locate area of the bulb, remove the bulb and to make sure its the correct bulb shine a light through the hole of the bulb you removed and look at the front of it to see if thats the engine light. good day.

I need to fix Dash air vent light -Left side - that goes on and off- How due I remove the bulb and check the wiring?


Check out the "Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs" section below:

2002 Volkswagen Passat - Repair Manual - Chassis Electrical (excerpt)

Dome/Map/Cargo Light

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its retaining clip contacts. If the bulb has tapered ends, gently depress the spring clip/metal contact and disengage the light bulb, then pull it free of the two metal contacts.

To install:
  1. Before installing the light bulb into the metal contacts, ensure that all electrical conducting surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  2. Insert the bulb into the holder. If the contacts have small holes, be sure that the tapered ends of the bulb are situated in them.
  3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
  4. Install the cover until its retaining tabs are properly engaged.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs
The instrument clusters installed on these models are one of 2 types and distinguished by the instrument lighting color, either green or blue.
On models with green instrumentation, only the control light bulbs are replaceable. Should any other failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.
On models with blue instrumentation, none of the components are replaceable. Should a failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.

Map Lights
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its electrical connector.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal.

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.

2002 Buick La Sabre. Some of the inst. cluster bulbs not light


Hello manderfield, The bulbs are replaceable but it requires complete disassembly of your cluster and above average soldering and de-soldering skills. The cluster removal process requires removing the trim molding that surrounds the cluster. There are several screws along the bottom and sides of the trim that you will need to remove before un-snapping the main section. You can lower the tilt steering wheel and place you transmission in low gear to help provide room for the trim and cluster removal. Thanks Mike www.kincerservice.com

How do you change dashboard lights in a 2003 toyota tacoma


You need to remove the instrument cluster assembly. You have to remove the cover on the steering column, and then the fascia, in front of the cluster. Next, remove the 4 screws that holds the cluster to the dash. Pull the cluster out, and remove the witing connectors. The bulbs are accessible from the back of the cluster. The bulb replacement can not be done 'from under the dash'.
