the one bulb was burnt out. Just replaced the burnt out bulb.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

If they were working before you changed the bulbs, I would recheck your all your connections to see if everything was replaced right and plugged in.

Did you check fuses also?

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Where did you get the bulbs you installed? If you put the old bulbs back in see if the operation returns

The replacement bulbs were LED' from The Auto Zone. I tried the 1 good bulb and it didn't work either. How is bulb replacement associated with the Tach not working now?
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Oh.. You have to watch when you use LED's.. They normally require their own ground..

Put all the original bulbs back in and then see if operation returns. It's very common to have things not work when LEDs are installed.

Did putting all the original bulbs back in return everything back to normal?
