THE ODOMETER IS BACK LIT. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND REPLACE THE BULB. IT INVOLVES REMOVING THE DASH COVER.
A dealer would charge a little over a hundred dollars. The light bulb would cost about $5.
My Saturn dealer told me it is $160.00 to change, because of dash removal, (as of 1/15/06) and most people wait until multiple lights go out. It can still be seen with a flashlight when needed.
there is no light bulb for the odometer. its a digital display. you have to replace the dash. used usally a 100. or so. had it happen to me. 2000 buick regal gs
I need to replace the odometer light on 1998 Mercedes ML 320.
my light on the odometer is not working anymore how do you replace the bulb on it
Remove the screws and clips on the dashboard. tilt the lower steering column carefully an slide out the dash unit. You should be able to see a set of bulbs and the one for the odometer is at the center. Remove and replace with a new one.
there isn't a specific fuse just for that light. if the rest of your dash lights work, its not a fuse. that light burns out on alot of the saturns. im not sure if its even replaceable without changing the gauge cluster.
I believe you hold the trip odometer button while turning on the ignition.
The odometer light fuse also controls other lights on your instrument panel. The odometer light can be removed by removing the instrument panel cover. Push the light bulb in and turn at the same time. The light bulb will come out. Replace it with a new light bulb.
It is not clear from your question whether the odometer is mechanical or digital. If it is digital, this is likely the beginning symptoms of a cracked solder joint on the circuit board that provides power and mileage information to the odometer display. See the discussion of the problem and options for repair at http://www.odometer-repair.com .
You will need to remove the instrument cluster board. To do that, remove the trim piece around the instrument cluster, then carefully pull the instrument cluster out of the dashboard. Note that the instrument cluster plugs in to a socket in the dashboard, so be careful as you remove the circuit board so that you do not damage the plug. Once the instrument cluster is out, replace all bulbs. They twist to remove, and if the odometer bulb has failed, the others are getting old too. It might be best to replace them all to avoid future problems.
there are no light in odometer to see milege and clock
It's not a light, the odometer is an LCD and the whole unit needs replaced. I have yet to find the parts to do this though. You do not need to replace the cluster. The problem lies within the circuitboard. I repair these clusters for 97-04 century models. If you replace the cluster, you will lose all of your odometer readings, which is NOT controlled by the computer. Contact me at ANCTechnologies at Hotmail.com
