    dashboard bulb failures

    I keep getting burned dash lights pretty often (sometimes twice per month),my local dealer told me that it is not uncommon which is strange as I have the car since 2002 and only started to have this issue recently.

    First time I've heard about it, which bulbs in particular?

    Anyone else noticed this?

    My fuel gauge bulb seems to be loose - it goes out for a while, then comes on again for a bit. Nothing has burnt out in 11+ years (under 20K miles driven)

    The weird thing is that they removed the cluster and checked the wiring but they couldn't find anything wrong with it, no error codes on the computer also.
