Replace Heater Indicator Light


I have a 2003 Honda Element. The indicator light of the heater on the dashboard went out. I would like to know how to get to it to replace the light. I believe I have to remove the entire dashboard to replace it, I don't know where to start to take it apart. Please help. Thank you very much.

    Indicator backlight is out on the heating/cooling fan control.  So in the dark I cannot tell what level the fan is running except by the sound.  I was told the entire dash would have to be removed to remedy this problem.  Is that true?

I have the same problem on my 2003 element that was reported on a 2006 Element about two weeks ago. No solution posted. "left turn signal with headlights off will work but radio display & drive...

This is the multifunction control module. Whne you look at the fuse box, you are really looking at a computer ie... the multifunction cotrol module. Everything goes thru this, except the ECM.

How do I replace dashboard heater light? The glowing lights that indicate direction of air flow.

Heater light bulb, and all other bulbs for the air conditioning buttons, are on the same mini panel, and attached to the back of the radio front fascia. To dismount this fascia, you need 1) To pry out (no screws) the clock 2) Unscrew the one screw that holds the top of the fascia (screw is hidden behind clock) 3) Unscrew the two screws at the bottom of the fascia 4) Disconnect all connectors from the back of the fascia 5) Look for the burnt minibulb.
You could replace the bulb without disconnecting, but the cables are short, and the possibilities of marring your dashboard are high.

Radio/heater dash lights out

Mine did the same thing. There is an extended warranty for it for 105,000 miles, hopefully you are under that. I was 108,000 miles when mine went out and it is going to cost me between $600-$1000 to repair. It is the circuit board. Call your Honda dealer.
