    Hello all.
    The backlight for voltage meter on the instrument paley of my 2008 FLHTCU is out. All others are functioning properly. Is there a fuse to replace or would it be a bulb?
    I am pretty sure this will be a quickie for someone. Looking forward to your insight. Thank you.

    i would say the bulb is bad or has popped out of its holder in the guage. If it was a fuse, nothing would work. You will need to remove the outer fairing to get at the back of the guages.

    Yup, pull the faring and you'll replace the bulb.
    Might want to buy an extra or two while at the dealership but maybe you'll be lucky and the bulb just popped out of the socket.

    It's a #158 wedge bulb, available at all auto parts stores. Yours probably has a yellow/orange silicon cover on it that is removable, to put on the new bulb. If you rip it, you can usually find tinted bulbs at the same store.

    Thanks all. I was thinking it was going to be a pretty easy fix. Much appreciated! :a
