          How to replace the dashboard bulb in a 1999 plymouth voyager


          Which light is out? Is it an instrument cluster light, or one on the temperature or A/C cluster? It it's an instrument cluster light, here is the process: (I'm assuming the 99 is similar to the 98) Remove the bottom dash panel under the steering wheel, remove the instrument cluster cover around the steering column. This will reveal the screws that hold your instrument cluster cover in place. Remove this cover and you can then see and remove the 4 screws holding your instrument cluster in place. Pull your instrument cluster out, remove the main wire connector, then you have access to all the instrument cluster lights on the back side. Hopefully you remember which one is out!

          Need to replace instrument cluster/AC bulbs


          Hello, You can obtain a 2004 Ram Factory Service Manual with all of that information available from Promanuals.net. The reason why it may be so important is because right before the removal instructions the service manual has diagnostic instructions to try. There are numerous pages on removing the instrument cluster, and cluster bezel.

          (1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
          cable. (For Airbag)

          (2) Remove the cluster bezel from the instrument
          panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/INSTRUMENT PANEL/
          CLUSTER BEZEL - REMOVAL).

          (3) Remove the four screws that secure the instrument
          cluster to the instrument panel structural support
          (Fig. 5).

          (4) Pull the instrument cluster rearward far
          enough to access and disconnect the instrument
          panel wire harness connectors for the cluster from
          the connector receptacles on the back of the cluster
          housing.

          (5) Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument
          panel.
