Default Speedometer needle no longer illuminates

The speedometer needle on my 08 ISF no longer lights up. Has anyone experienced this? Curious if I need to replace the LED or the needle. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for sharing! I would assume the car is not drivable once you remove cluster to have LEDs replaced. Does anyone know of a shop in southern California where I could wait while repaired?

Also, Is the 2012 cluster plug and play to update?

I think someone said you can still drive it but not really sure how practical it is while you have no speedo. I think Tanin has a location in cali

Much appreciated for the link!

I talked to my local dealership where I've been loyal to the past 18 years about the cluster issue. They told me they would contact LOA to see if they can work out a "Good Will" repair since I've been a long time customer. If no go, I will contact navigation services in Garden Grove.

I had this happen a few months after I bought my ISF about 2 years ago. Went to a place in Socal and had the LED replaced and it was good as new
