Main panel too faint to read.
Had to replace entire inst cluster to correct this problem. It was covered under my extended warranty (thankfully) since the cost was 2500. I only paid the $100 ded.

Temp, clock and some of the computer module readouts have gone bad. Mechanic is looking in salvage yard for replacement component. Not worth $2500 on a 14 year old vehicle.
First one was the temperature indicator for passengers side. Then the outside temperature indicator went out. Now the radio screen is not showing up unless you turn it off and then off again.
Clock read out display works intermittently
