Default speedometer light dim

I have a 2003 with 101k miles. I recently had the control arm bushings and cam position sensor replaced. (I think it was the fourth time for the latter repair!) Last night, I noticed that the red arm that shows the speed was unlit or dim. This morning, that was still the case, but the right side of the speedometer (around 120-140mph) and left side of the tachometer were dim. Any ideas what this could be?

If some are bright, then you have some burned out bulbs. You will need to remove cluster to replace. Replace all not just the bad ones. Others may go anytime if left in there. Not worth the risk if already out. If all are dim check your switch position.
