    The far left bulb in my instrument cluster is now putting out less light than the other bulbs. All bulbs were installed at the same time and have the same amount of run time on them. I havent installed anything recently. This is a 98 tacoma prerunner

    Are the bulbs all old now? Have you tried swapping them out with new ones?

    Likely just a bad bulb.

    They are all a little over 1 year old. Would an LED go bad that fast? I haven't tried swapping the bulbs around, that would be a good idea to do as it's only doing it on one side
