    2004 2500HD chevrolet. CEL was on but went out while driving. Had the truck at the stealership for some other repairs and they said that the CEL bulb was burnt out but that it could not be repaired, in order to get it on again would mean replacing the whole cluster. Is this true or am I able to remove the cluster and solder in a new bulb?

    you can remove the cluster and solder in a new bulb. Search you tube. There are plenty of videos of how to do it. Alternatively, you can pull the cluster and send it out. I know of a reputable place in Texas that for $125 will replace all the bulbs (any color you want or LED upgrade) and all of the stepper motors. My cousin shipped his there. He used his GPS on his phone to track his speed for the 3 days it was gone. PM me if you want the company info.
