hey guys

the cluster back light bulb that's closest to the fuel gauge is out. I bought a new bulb and changed it and still doesnt light up. Tried a 2nd, and 3rd working bulb to no avail.

There is no power going to the base of the bulb on the cluster board

I assumed all the illumination bulbs were controlled by the same board/fuse

How would I diagnose this? The rest of the cluster lights come on just fine.. it's just the one that's near the fuel gauge that's out

Is there a wire in the cluster harness that specifically goes to this bulb?

thx

took off the cluster again, and there is no power going to the board where the bulb plugs into, but I cant figure out why only 1 bulb is affected. I'd assume that all illumination bulbs would be on the same board on the cluster. I cant see any evidence of damage either. Mine was working fine and it stopped one day, so i know there is no physical damage or any obvious cause..

well.. hopefully some one will chime in..

If I find a fix, I will keep you updated. Please do the same if you find a fix as well.

thx
