View Full Version : gauge lights dim

I searched around for a while, but didnt turn up anything. On the rpm gauge, only around 3-5 is noticeably dimmer than the rest of the gauges. It can't be a fuse i'm guessing because the rest of it is ok. I dont know of thers a bulb or something that needs replacement. Thanks as always.

I'm sure someone else can confirm this but IIRC the dash is lit up by bulbs. Frankly though if thats the case and you only have one out I'd weigh out what's worse: replacing all the bulbs either yourself or have it done (cuz you know if one goes out and gets replaced another will soon follow just to spite you) or just deal with it til more go out. Or you could just smack the top of the cluster a few times to see if they come back on...worked on my old blazer...for a while at least.

they are bulbs, takes 5 minutes to swap them out, theres ~6 IIRC. easy as pie.
