Asked by Nov 17, 2014 at 08:25 AM about the 2003 Toyota Tacoma 2 Dr STD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I JUST PURCHASED A 2003 TOYOTA TACOMA 2WD REG CAB AND THE LIGHTS IN THE INSTRUMENT PANEL DO NOT WORK, BUT THE SPEEDOMETER AND GAUGES STILL FUNCTION CORRECTLY. THE TEMP CONTROLS AND THE RADIO LIGHTS ARE WORKING AND I HAVE CHECKED THE FUSES INSIDE AND UNDER THE HOOD. I HAVE ALSO CHECKED AND MADE SURE THAT THE DIMMER WASNT TURNED OFF. THE BULBS IN THE INSTRUMENT PANEL SHOW TO BE GOOD, I DIDNT FIND ANY THAT WERE BURNT. PLEASE HELP

Dash lights burnt out. You have to take the dash apart to replace them. http://www.customtacos.com/tech.old/index.php?article=77 I replaced my about a year ago with LEDs, now two of those are dead or dieing.
