i have some dash bulbs out (trans temp, some of speedo). my cadillac tech is under the impression that the cluster would have to be replaced because the bulbs are soldered in...i thought only the steering wheel switches had soldered bulbs.

can anyone clarify?

----------

also...are the bottom info switches on the steering wheel supposed to light up at night?

The bulbs are soldered in and yes they can be replaced(if you are good with a soldiering iron) also all of the steering wheel lights light up sounds like some are blown

Like mentioned above if you can solder its really easy and cheap if you DIY.

Check out youtube for vids. I have seen a couple.
