Default Re: How To: Instrument cluster bulb replacement

I did this tonight and it was really easy. Excellent write-up. I went ahead and replaced the hvac too. I recommend to ask someone to hold the radio bezel so it won't be in your way.

Just bought my 96 Ranger. Great pics. noticed a day later, that all dash lights are out, cluster, hvac, and headlight switch. Is it more likely that i have a fuse, electrical problem, or could it be that they are all out at the same time?

Put the key in the RUN position ( the last click before you start it) but don't actually start it.

Then move it into 1st, and go about your business. You won't be able to remove the keys though.

Don't forget to set the e brake!!!
