2001 chevy venture van 3.4. all lights work in cluster except speedometer lights .it looks like they maybe led sodered in thank,s george

O.k.,these lights are soldered to the circuit board inside the instrument cluster.GM doesnt offer a part number for these and usually this is repaired by either a local electronics repair facility or sent out by the dealer to their repair center to be repaired.I know the cost can vary anywhere from $100 to $300 usually which is not the cheapest but when it fails like this here these are usually the only two options.I say usually because I have heard of some customers taking their cluster apart and removing one of the lights (there may be one to two in some cases) and going to an electrical sales store to purchase the lights then solder them in,unfortunately my info doesnt list a part number.

So it needs to be determined if you want to attempt to repair this yourself or if you want an electronics repair facility to do this.If you do it yourself make sure you do not bend any of the gauge needles as this will cause issues with the gauges.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
