actually its not.... in my 96 ranger i put in a new gauge cluster because i only had a speed-o and i wanted the tachometer and it was a simple plug in conversiton. after pulling it from the junk yard and putting it in i found out half the bulbs were burnt out.

if i remember correctly, the lights that come on when you turn the parking lights on, there should be about 8 or so. for the "check engine/parkingbrake/check gauge/4x4/4x4low" bulbs, there would probably an estimated 10 bulbs or so.

That's what the small 73/74 lights I was talking about are... There's only 6 behind the cluster for the 194's and 2 in the HVAC panel

Dash illumination : 6 194 bulbs.

Idiot lights : 16! of those tiny tiny ones......don't even know the bulb size. 17 if the truck is an automatic.

THEFT light : 1....it's an LED, so i don't know about replacement.

So in total 23...or 24


That's from a '01 4x4 w/ cruise & manual trans. There should be one extra of those tiny ones for the OD light on automatic trucks.
