"no lights" as in your headlights were on and nothing lit up in your dash?

What about the odemeter (lcd), does that still light up?

The main guage bulbs are actual bulbs that you can buy for 2.99 for two.

step 1 unscrew 3 7mm-head screws from the top of the black gauge bezel, pull bezel out, unclip hatch button
step 2 unscrew 4 7mm-head screws around gauges, dont drop them
step 3 pull passenger side of the gauges out. Flip the red bar toward the driver side door, then pull the harness out of the back
step 4 use a T15 torx to remove 7 screws from the BACK of the gauges
step 5 remove the plastic cover, then CAREFULLY pull out the green board, rocking it back and forth up and down.
step 6 gently pull out the biggest bulbs. Or just the one that's broken. No twisting necessary.


They are size 194. Get them at autozone.
