the dash lights now glow very faintly when I turn on the headlights.

Asked by Nov 06, 2015 at 08:21 AM about the 2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the dash lights now glow very faintly when I turn on the headlights.  Is the dash bulb burnt out or the dimmer switch bad?  Turning the dimmer switch up or down has no impact.  Not completely black.  If it is a bulb, is it something I can replace myself?
