Lights behind speedometer and...

Lights behind speedometer and gauges don't work. Tail lights do, parking lights do.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

I have not but I will if I can figure out how. Thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 (Jayco RV van)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes,I checked all the fuses, looked at wiring but don't know anything about that...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, I need to see if I can get to bulb first

no gauge lights but I can see there is a light on behind the things to the right of the speedometer, like the radio

Where /how do I find the bulb to see if it's burned out?
Dodge Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 10 months ago

First check your dimmer switch make sure it is not set to dim, if you would like to see if the bulb is burnt or not you just simply have to remove the gauges off the panel and the bulb sockets will be behind the gauges accessible to you.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
