Mike,

Years ago, my '94 Ranger had burned-out dashlight bulbs. When I finally removed the instrument cluster portion (in the '94, I had to also remove the center dash portion including radio and climate controls just to get the instrument cluster pulled out) I decided to not only change out the burned-out bulbs but CHANGED OUT ALL THE DASH BULBS. For the little extra cost of a few more bulbs, I didn't want to have to go through that again anytime soon.....

I'd recommend you do the same; change ALL the dash bulbs with new bulbs, even if they are still working now.

Ryan
