Maybe a bulb change like you said in your
first post may be a good next step.
They are not colored. I checked. I'm going to see if anyone makes an LED equivalent as a direct replacement. Will also check the voltage. Even though it has the original (AFIK) incandescent bulbs the cluster should be brighter than it is.

I've had square body trucks before and I'd say these are about half as bright.
Repairing and driving old trucks is an analog experience. No computers or sensors. They can be fixed with wrenches and a feeler gauge
