The bulb that lights up my "check engine" indicator in my cluster gauge just went out, and I need to know the size of the bulb to replace.

You cant imagine how hard its been to google this. The moment I enter "check engine light" my shot at finding an answer is drowned out by dumb posts about "Why is my check engine light on?" Good lord. Im also hungover and just want some answers and need the help of a kindhearted individual. Thanks!!

My thoughts exactly!!! On a Thursday? WOW! :lmao:

In regards to your question, I believe that you can desolder the old bulb out of the cluster, buy a new bulb (they're tiny) and resolder it to the circuit board. That's how I understand it, at least. Maybe someone who has done this operation will chime in.

Thanks for the help guys. My hangover is over and im good to go. Yes yes yes hung over on Thursday I know....lol When you are really good at selling pest control door-to-door you only have to work 5 months out of the year. So why not get drunk when ever you feel like it?? Blessing and a curse...

Anyways I just ended up replacing the entire cluster gauge. The green plug on that back was extremely challenging to take out. Once i popped it off the gauge slipped out of my hand, bounced a few times and all the snap on tabs broke off. Just sat there for a while in a hot ball of anger before I bought the new one. Thanks for the help anyways fellas. You guys are awesome!
