On my 02 xcsp when I have the ignition key set for premium gas the indicator light doesn't come on in the dash. Any quick things to check before I tear it apart? Also concerned that maybe none of the warning lights work.

I haven't really looked at how hard it is to change them out. Are they easy to get at?

It is not that bad . Easy if you have long skiny fingers just look at where the lite would be and fell on the back side and you will find where the wire for the lite is and pull it out it is just held in with a rubber gromet if the bulb is blowen they are the same as a car side marker lite can get at any auto store Tony

Make sure you check the plug where your hood fastens to the sled. Nest to the main harness there is a single white/red wire that goes to the 3 prong plug. I pulled my hood off this summer for cleaning and forgot to reconnect that wire and had no Prem only light.

Just curious, have you blown any headlights?

Twice when i had bad regulators the headlight blew but other lights did not.

My brother had issues with blowing headlight bulbs on his '03 Pro-X 700, but that was because he used brighter bulbs than what he was supposed to use and the bulbs basically got so hot that the filiment just kinda melted. It also fried his high/low beam switch.
Since he went back to using the original wattage bulb he has had no issues.

I never blew bulbs just the solder in the backside of the switch would get hot and then fall out. Never lost a bulb but I have had the reflectors fall out.
