what is cost of replacing dash instrument lights? I have checked all fuses inside the cab and under the hood....they all work fine. The problem just occurred a couple of days ago; everything is lit up... but the left side of the rpm odometer and the thermostat is signifcantly dimmer than the rest of the dash.

Should only take about an hour or less to take the instrument cluster out to replace the bad bulbs in that. Shouldn't be charged more than $30-60 to have professional shop do it. --Dale in Southern Idaho Done Right Automotive Service
