    Guys, I do not know where to look for the problem in fixing this one. Is it a recalled item? It is not a fuse, some say it is not a Relay, but the switch itself. Can anyone contribute to diagnosing my problem.

    Is it just the speedo or all the lights? Maybe turn up the dimmer?

    My thoughts exactly... the dimmer switch is to the left of your gauges. Try it and report back.

    Guys,

    I am not an ignorant man by far, however, you have caught me in a senior moment (my First).

    I do not adjust the dimmer ever, and I would guess it was the non-english speaking car wash helper that actually wiped down my dash for the first time.

    He must have turned it down unintentionally.


    Thanks again, now I can return my Haynes Handbook on the truck to AutoZone.:cool:

    You're not the first or last for that one. The first time that happened to me, it was when my one year old was pulling with the steering wheel, I never even thought about that, just that, "WTF and how did he brake it?"
