Odometer not lighting up

My 99 Boxster's odometer went dark, no lit numbers. All othr lights in dash work. I removed the instruent cluster and replaced what I thought was the bulb for the odometer. Still dark! Are the Odometer oragne numbers lit with a bulb? is it one that can be replaced without taking the back of the cluster off The bulb I replaced was beige and in the area of the Odometer. The odometer is still adding mileage,I can just see it in the right light. Thanks

I think you need to take the whole instrument cluster out to replace any bulbs in the cluster (Do a search here and on other forums and you'll find enough DIY instructions)
This thread http://www.babblers.org/forums/showthread.php?t=12356 has a few pictures of disassembled clusters
Where are you located?
The bulbs itself can be ordered from Suncoast Porsche

You're speaking about just the LCD portion, correct?

You might try swapping two similar bulbs to see if maybe the housing is bad.

You can also check out this thread on renntech for more information.

Tom,
It is just the LED portion, I will try another known good bulb and test before reinstalling. I love the engineering of the connectors, very nicely thought out! Thanks for the link that's great!

Some styling specialists might suggest specific tones and wig styles for your head however in real sense, you should utilize your own taste to knotless wigs get what you want most.

What would cause the digital odometer to stop working?
The most common causes of a speedometer that stopped working include are a faulty speed sensor, a broken gear on the speedometer, damaged wiring, or a faulty engine control unit.
