Dash lights are out 2006 f250!!

I got in today and noticed that the trans and water temp lights are out. the needle is still lit and the gauges work, but the lights in the back ground are out. what do to? Is this a common thing? how hard is it to fix?

Hmmm, never had this problem. Might just have to change some bulbs, I changed all of em in my silverado and it was pretty easy to do. I dont think it would be much different for these trucks. If you're gonna go through the trouble to change the lights I'd suggest replacing all of them with led's, they looked great in my silverado!

My cluster has done the same thing since I drive a ton I'm betting the bulbs are loose. You can remove the cluster and pull the bulbs to replace as needed, the bulbs are found at any parts store.

Heres a pic of mine in my silverado, replaced all the green ones with blue.

You can order them at superbrightleds.com, just find out what kind of bulbs you have and cross reference them.
