Question about 2005 GMC Sierra
The lights behind one of my radio controls is out how can I fix this?
If this is the lights for the switches in the steering wheel, these are LED's. The switches are made in such a way that it is prudent to replace the switch rather than try to take it apart and replace the LED. The switches are relatively inexpensive and are very easy to replace. While the LED's are rather inexpensive, the time that it would take to get the switch apart, replace the LED and then attempt to put it all back together is not worth the twenty to thirty bucks for a new switch.
I have replaced three of the four that are in my steering wheel. The hardest part to the whole thing is making the wiring connection in the back of the switch for the two large ones on the center crossbar. My fingers aren't quite slim enough to make the connection easily. I found using a pair of hemostats or some type of thin clamp with a handle works very well.
