and thank you very much for your concern and reply.

SOURCE: instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

SOURCE: My 2005 Kia Spectra instrument cluster lights out

My 2005 Kia Spectra L4-2.0L instrument cluster lights were flickering for a while and now most of the time they don't work. Unfortunately I have 95k and the warranty ran out at 60k (5yr 60k warranty on that item). KIA charged me $50 to tell me that the cluster has an internal short and needs to be replaced for about $500+. I called KIA corporate and said sorry your out of luck, ie no recalls or warranty left.

SOURCE: the odometer light and gear light on instrument

The unit has to come out of dash to replace bulbs.
This is a tedious project as disassembly of dash components need to be removed to get at this as well as the speedometer cable which is difficult to get back into place as well sometimes there's a wire or white string that runs the little red park, drive indicator.
May be easier to get a couple LED's or small 12v light and run some extra wires from the 12 volts off the radio fuse and a ground anywhere on a body screw that goes into metal body parts and not just plastic. - drill a hole in the face-plate and install your own light/s with some fine wires and silicone dabs to seal things in place, lol and save a lot of work and money.

SOURCE: no illuminate lights in the instrument cluster...

There are 2 diodes in the underhood fuse box (diodes look like black fuses) one of those diodes is blown, there is a spare diode in the interior fuse panel. Remove that spare and swap it with both of the ones under the hood.

I just bought a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville and now the system monitor light is on why and what does that mean?


No other messages in the driver info center ?
This section provides an overview of the instrument cluster operation as well as a detailed diagnosis. The instrument cluster serves as the primary interface for the vehicle's driver.
The instrument cluster contains a microprocessor as part of the instrument panel assembly. The instrument cluster performs the following functions:
• Recognizes operational malfunctions
• Alerts the driver through indicators
• Stores DTCs which identify malfunction areas
In order to perform all of these functions, the instrument cluster microprocessor has its own inputs, outputs and program software. The instrument cluster has the capability to diagnose malfunctions in the following components:
• The sensors
• The input switches
• The components
• The systems the instrument cluster communicates with or controls
When the instrument cluster or another microprocessor-controlled module detects a malfunction, the instrument cluster may turn on an instrument cluster indicator in order to alert the driver that a malfunction has occurred. Some indicator lamps have dual controls. Your best bet is have it checked for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes !

How do I replace dash light bulbs on a 2007 Ford Escape?


What lights are not working ? The instrument cluster illumination is inoperative or all the lights ,radio , heater control head, all the switches that would be back lighted.
  • The climate control panel illumination is inoperative , The passenger door lock control switch illumination is inoperative. Could need new dimmer switch , new instrument cluster. When installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the module configuration to the scan tool. Following installation of the new instrument cluster, download the module configuration from the scan tool into the new instrument cluster. Refer to Section 418-01 .

    My nissan Almera S reg has no side lights or dash lights.All fuses seem ok.


    This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems;
    Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer. Vehicles equipped with tachometer have an electronic vacuum fluorescent transmission range indicator (PRND3L),odometer and trip odometer display. Vehicles without tachometer are equipped with a cable-operated transmission range indicator.
    Instrument cluster is equipped with the following warning lights:
    Battery voltage.
    Cruise (speed control).
    Door ajar.
    Fasten seat belt.
    Lift gate ajar.
    Low fuel level.
    Low windshield and washer level.
    Traction Control.
    The Body Control Module (BCM), which receives input from various sensors, sends display information to instrument cluster and operates gauges. Instrument cluster incorporates a self-test diagnostic feature to identify electronic problems. BCM, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and Transmission Control Module (TCM) are continuously monitored by the diagnostic system.

    SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
    With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.
    DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART
    CodeDescription
    110.......Cluster Memory Fault
    111.......Cluster Calibration Fault
    905.......No CCD Bus Message From TCM
    921.......Odometer Fault From BCM
    940.......No CCD Bus Message From PCM

    After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:
    Dim test.
    Calibration test.
    Odometer segment test.
    Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
    Dim Test
    CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Florescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists. See BODY CONTROL COMPUTER TESTS in BODY CONTROL COMPUTER article.
    Calibration Test
    CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

    Odometer Segment Test
    CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
    Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
    CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

    2005 Civic Temp Control & center dash lights not working -blower & all vent settings are functional ,I have checked all fuses under column & underhood with NO blown fuses


    Your instrument cluster and console lights are protected by fuse #2 (15 Amp) in the underhood fuse and relay box. They actually get power from the tail lamp relay. If the tail lamps are working, the relay and the fuse is not your problem. The brightness of these lights are controlled by the Multiplex Control Unit and theCPU built into the instrument gauge cluster. The dimmer circuits are actually integral with the instrument cluster. If the tail lights are working and the lighting in the instrument cluster is working, then the problem is either a CPU failure in the instrument cluster or an open circuit between the instrument cluster and the center console lights. The console lights themselves should have power all the time that the tail lights are turned on. The CPU in the instrument cluster provides ground for them to function. The wiring is a little different depending on which model you have and how it is equipped (LX, DX, EX, LX with side curtain airbags, etc.) however, the function is the same.

    I highly recommend scanning your computer network for fault codes before spending a lot of time trying to perform electrical diagnosis. There may be a fault code present that will lead directly to the cause.

    How to replace the dashboard bulb in a 1999 plymouth voyager


    Which light is out? Is it an instrument cluster light, or one on the temperature or A/C cluster? It it's an instrument cluster light, here is the process: (I'm assuming the 99 is similar to the 98) Remove the bottom dash panel under the steering wheel, remove the instrument cluster cover around the steering column. This will reveal the screws that hold your instrument cluster cover in place. Remove this cover and you can then see and remove the 4 screws holding your instrument cluster in place. Pull your instrument cluster out, remove the main wire connector, then you have access to all the instrument cluster lights on the back side. Hopefully you remember which one is out!

    Insturmentation panel lights fuse blows when i start car


    Try to remove the instrument panel and disconnect the harness to see if doing that gets rid of the blown fuse when starting the car. If it does, then the instrument panel should be replaced with another. If the fuse still blows when starting, then there is a wire shorted to ground somewhere.
