lights on center console help?

ever since they broke into my car half the lights on my center console where the a/c is doesnt light up anymore. i checked the fuses and they are all ok. do these lights have individuals lights behind the a/c knobs? how can i get my lights to light up again?

Re: lights on center console help?

i to have had that same problem. i went to the dealer and they told me that it has leds behind it and that when the lights go out you have to replace the whole a/c display. the dealer told me it was $130-$150 to replace. hope this helps.

Re: lights on center console help?

wow!!! thats what i was told through a friend, but i didnt want to believe it because it sounded so expensive for something so simple. gues thats why so many people dont even bother with it.

i thought it each bulb could be replaced individually. ah this sucks

Re: lights on center console help?

also you can buy the whole center from ebay for pretty cheap

to change the bulbs to LED you need some soldering experience and the tool

but u can do a cheap fix buy buying the part off of ebay the only risk u run is them burning out again as they're cheap lightbulbs
