Dash/Instrument lighting

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just picked up a 2nd hand 2000 Avalon for $1500 - got a bargain - apart from a slow sump leak (fixed) and two bald tires... I love the car! (my first Toyota)

So - the only real issue I have - interior lighting is DIM... the roof light is dull, but I have a 30mm LED festoon globe coming for that...
And so are the dash lights - now THESE I don't know how to change? is it worth the effort? what sort of lights are in there?
They're not really dim, just lower than I'm used to (Commodore owner) - I guess the dimmer potentiometer could be the issue?

After any advice!

Cheers,
Richard

Bulbs could also be old. The filament starts to die out after many years of use. The cluster needs to be removed to access them.

I have a similar problem with at least 1 of the globes on my MCV20R - I intend to pull the dash out at some stage :/ Not difficult from memory.
