I just don't want the mechanic to pull a fast one when all that may be needed is a new bulb.
Unfortunately there's no such thing as "just needing a new bulb" with today's dashboards. These boards are complete printed circuit boards and the bulbs, if any, are soldered onto them.

Another item would be the 12v battery health. In an ICEV you can detect a weakening battery by the car's willingness to turn over when starting. In an EV where the 12v battery is used just to power up the computers and other low voltage electronics it's not so easy.
