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.

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.


Where is the fuse for the digital odometer light in a 1999 Saturn coupe?

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.

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.


How do you replace the digital odometer light bulb on a 2000 Saturn SL2?

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.


2000 Ford Explorer and your odometer light is dimmed on both side of odometer is it a fuse or blulb How do you repair this?

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 .

Why doesn't my odometer light come on in my 2000 buick?

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


Is the odemeter connected to the fuse box?

Odometer Fuse Box RelationshipThat depends on the type of odometer. For example, a mechanical odometer which is driven by a mechanical cable will NOT have any connection to the fuse box OTHER than for lighting, IF the odometer has a light inside of it.On the other hand, if the odometer is of the digital electronic type, it will, in a remote manner, be connected to a fuse which is usually a fuse designated for the "Instrument Panel." In this case, the digital odometer is usually built into/on the Instrument Panel Printed Circuit Board [PCB], and thus will be connected to the fuse box via the PCB wiring harness.

How do you replace the odometer light on a 2003 Alero?

There isn't an odometer light on an Alero, the digital readout is a VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) which is self illuminating. The reason your odometer is out is most likely a blown resistor/resistors or cold solder joints on a resistor. Do a web search for "odometer resistor" and you should find enough info to fix this yourself. Since yours is an Alero probably any gm (grand am, impala, malibu...)with a digital readout will have a similar fix. On your Alero, take the board off the back of the gauge cluster, there should be 3 resistors just to the left of the odometer display. They look like little brown rods about 1/4-3/8" long with silver ends. If any of them are burnt or missing that would be your problem. On my alero they are 180 ohm and probably 1 Watt or so. You can remove all three and replace them with one 60 ohm 5watt power resistor.


How do you change the light in the odometer in a 2002 ford explorer?

If it is a digital odometer, there is probably nothing wrong with the "light". The problem is that no power is reaching the light due to a cracked solder joint on a circuit board connection that powers the light. The Ford dealer charges around $600 to repair this problem, but you can easily fix it yourself. See details on this problem at http://www.odometer-repair.com .
