How do you fix the lights on a 86 lebaron digital dash?

The light bulbs for the icon-displays (seatbelts, check engine, etc.) can be easily replaced after removing the instrument cluster bezel (4 screws after cluster removed from vehicle). However, if you are talking about the "digital display" such as speedometer, fuel gauge, engine temperature, oil pressure, etc., that is all tied into the electronic circuitry behind the display and would need the services of a professional that repairs digital instrument clusters. Check Hemmings for those that do that type of work. Your only other option would be to try and obtain a "used" instrument cluster that works properly from recyclers or on the Internet. Good luck, they haven't been made in over 25 years and anything that works will probably be at at premium. Plus, usually no guarantee on used parts.

How does one replace the dashboard light in a 1983 MB 300TD?

The lights around in the speedometer cluster are changed by pulling the cluster forward. There is a special tool to make this easier and to not damage the dash, but I always removed the kick panel on the driver's side and reached up underneath and gently, but firmly pushed it out. Once out, remove the speedo cable and wiring harness and you can remove the whole cluster by guiding it around the steering wheel. The lights on the center switches (sunroof etc are all lighted by one light fed through fiber optic cable from behind the heater control switches.

How can you fix the lights in the instrument panel of a 1994 Lexus ES300?

try going to a junk yard that can sell u a replacement speedometer cluster for about 50 bucks or so... have them test it for you.... if its good then you can ix your old one at your spare time.... with replacement bulbs, etc that you can get on ebay.... remember to disconnect your car battery when removing anything and dont try to turn the car on with out the speedometer on.......... good luck...try banging on the dash above the instrument panel. It worked on mine.Continued...if the banging on the dash works, that means the filaments in the bulb are broken. they may regain contact for a while after you shake it (banging on the dash) but eventually you'll have to replace the bulbs. fortunately they're not the expensive kind, just the typical push-in bulb #194. takes about an hour to remove the cluster and then you can see the bulbs on the back (in little black or green holders) remove the holders, swap the bulbs, then reinstall.
