    I’m having problems with my high beam indicator not showing up on the dash anymore when I activate the high beams but it does turn on when all the lights turn on when starting the truck so the light isn’t burnt out and all fuses checked out good any ideas? It’s on a 2005 Peterbilt 378

    I just remember when TVs would go on the fritz, we'd smack 'em on top. The fritzier they were, the harder you'd smack them....
    :-D

    Yup, noticed my coolant gauge jumping around the other day. Few taps on the dash and it stopped. Didn't feel like pulling the dash apart lol
