The light bulbs in a Toyota Tacoma dashboard let you see the instrument panel while you are driving at night. Each part of the dashboard, from the radio to the instrument cluster, has its own bulb that will need to be replaced when it is burnt out. A 1.2 watt light bulb will do the job. You can replace the burnt out bulb with a new one in the Toyota Tacoma's dashboard in a few simple steps.
