I’ve never touched the light bulbs in the cluster but I do know that all the used gauges I see on eBay have the fuel gauge not on empty. And. About the D bulb. I’m kinda getting my transmission problems straightened out but my D light does go out intermittently sometimes. My mechanic said it’s a loose pin (he didn’t show me) but I noticed when I put the gear in drive and it manages to connect with the auto gearbox it illuminates. When the manual light comes on(forcing me to be in manu mode the D light goes out). There has to be some kind of sensor issue. I’m gonna take the car to the dealership soon and get the valve body and all the solenoids replaced and hopefully the D light will work like it’s supposed to.I have my cluster out to address a couple of issues.
The majority, if not all of the back lights are bulbs. They are accessible right on the back of the cluster. My questions are:
1) Are lights under the PRN2DL inside the cluster? The light under D on my cluster is out. Is it a bulb or LED?
2) How do I get to it? The way it’s sandwiched together you have a clear cover, then the black backing, then a white housing. I see how they interlock, but do I have to pull the needles of or can I somehow do this through the back?
2.5) All of the needles are down except my fuel gauge, it’s showing full even unhooked. Is that normal? I know I have sending unit problems, causing it to show F all the time, at least I thought I did?
Thanks in advance!
