Instrument Cluster Lights

I have a 02 Gt and my instrument lights will not come on. I checked all the fuses and they were all in tact. The CEL light and all comes on, just not my gauges nor my heat or air lights. Headlights and taillights are fine as well. Anyone help? Please and thank you. I tried to research and read other forums but none really answered my question throughly.

More than likely its the headlight/ dimmer switch going bad. It is a very common problem with these cars. I replaced mine last year for the very same reason.

Good Luck!

Auto Zone, Advance, Napa, or Rock auto should have them. I think I got mine from Auto Zone.

How easy are they to replace?

Use a jewler's screwdriver or something similar to pop off the headlight knob, use some torx screwdrivers to remove the cluster bezel screws and then yank the bezel out and the switch is now accessable. Remove screws holding it in, unplug it, plug in new switch, and reverse everything. Literally a 5 minute job with screwdrivers.
