Question about 2005 Volkswagen Jetta
2005 Jetta w/60K miles. The back lighting for the 3 climate control knubs in the dash just above the ashtray do not work. It is difficult to use them at night. What is the possible root cause? Blown fuse? It is hard to believe there is a separate fuse for just these 3 controls. All other interior lights in dash and car work okay.
No No. Just a burnt light bulb. You can replace it very easily. The knob on the controls can be pulled of. Use a rag or cloth to protect the knob then pull it out with pliers. Inside the little hole use a small piece of hose that fits over it and the bulb straight out. Just reconize the position of the bulb when you pull it out to align the new on correctly. Using the same pice of hose reinstall it. Then turn on the lights. The bulb will heat up the hose making it expand a little and using a little thin screwdriver or pin hold the bulb in place through the tube and pull off the tube. Then with your finger just make sure the bulb hasn't moved. Reinstall the knob in the same postion (only goes one way) and try the knob and the lights. Everything should work great. The bulb from VW is less than 10$, and is an easy do it yourself. You DO NOT have to remove the heater console to do this.
