Take the cover off of the speaker side of the radio. Locate the small wheat lamp that is sitting in a rubber grommet on the back of the meter. Pull the lamp out. Cut the wires close to the lamp. Attach a 12v bulb (available from radio shack). polarity is not an issue. Use tape or heat shrink to insulate the connections. Very Simple. Do not be intimidated.

Fix headlights

Hi Tony:
Basic answer is that there can be 2 problems;
1) The bulbs are no good. Test with continuity meter or jumper wire from battery.
2) There is no power getting to the bulb. Test with voltage meter at the socket.
If there is no power getting to the lights you have to trouble shoot by checking for power at the fuses, light switch, and the wires to the lights.
Patience and logic.
You'll find it.

No power and cracked display is it related?

Dale, If your charger starts flashing very fast, or no light is coming on at all, something is wrong. No light coming on, could mean it does not get any power. But it also could mean the battery has died.
If you have a multi meter, you could test what voltage the battery has. Most batteries are 3,7 or 7,2 volt. when you use a multimeter, the reading in DC should be something like 3,9 or 7,5. On the meter the outage should be a few percent higher than what is printed on the battery. As soon as the meter indicates a voltage just a little (or worse a lot) under the printed value, the battery must be replaced.

How to fix trunk light on eclipse spyder gt

Could be a bad ground. Could also be a bad connection at the switch or power source. The connection in the switch could be just good enough to power the meter but not the bulb.

I accidentally hooked up the battery, reversing the polarity. I corrected the screw-up, but now the radio and interior lights will not come on. Fuses look good. any suggestions on fixing the radio &...

Ouch! Okay, do you have a volt meter? If so you need to check the voltage at your fuse box to make sure that you are getting power to fuse panel If you are getting power to the panel, then you have to diagnose the power issue from the fuse panel to the radio and dome lights. All the lights not working? The radio may have an in-line fuse as well. If you don't have a volt meter, go get one.

2003 Impala - mystery problem???

you have something thats staying on with power when you shut the car off,first check all lights glove apartment,underhood,in trunk ,just because ther closed doesnt mean the light is off,check your car at night it might help to see the lights,if not another way is to take a multi meter to the battery and while some holds the meter pull out fuses in your fus box one at a time to see when the meter makes a change,this will help you to narrow down whats staying on and draining the power from the battery,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

SLR light meter

Hmmm well its getting power.... surely the lens is on correctly. Since the camera seems to be working, one option is to get a hand-held light meter.
