'96 Dash/Overhead Console Lights


New here, this is my first post.

I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo. The lights for the climate control knobs do not work at night, nor does the information center below it. Is that an easy fix? Fuse? Something I can do myself?

Also, the overhead lights over the dash are broken. One light is missing and only the rear lights on the console work. Any suggestions on a good place to replace that? Do I have to replace the whole console?

Probably some light bulbs burned out on the hvac controls. You can even get different color replacement bulbs or an LED conversion kit for your entire dash if you want.
For the information center, do you have the VIC or the GDM? Depending on that, it's either more bulbs or possibly a loose plug. The VICs, sometimes the solder points on the circuit board inside of it crack, you can easily reflow/resolder them with a soldering iron.
I think the bulb sizes for most of those are 168 or 194, you can use either but 168 is a bit brighter.
