just did it this past weekend, you've got a blown accessory light.. here's just pull everything back out.. get to the a/c control. dissamble it. there are 5 bulbs. one for the top row (auto, recycle..) 2 for the bottom row (a/c, defrost...) one for the temp, one for the speed of the a/c. you've probably want to change all of them once in there... they're probably old and will soon all go.. that's what happened to me, 1st the top row, then about a month later the one in the bottom row.. if you go to the dealership each bulb (and socket) will be around $8, which I thought was ridiculous.. went to the usual auto parts stores found nothing alike. then got creative. went to Radio Shack found the actual bulb itself (12V/25mapms) replaced the old bulbs, from the actual sockets have dash light on them again. hope this helps.. beats $50 bucks of bulbs from the dealership
thank you very much, i will try it out today
