My bulbs are also burned out. The bulbs are not replaceable, you must replace the whole switch assy. The switches do come apart, but it is next to impossible to find a lamp that small and mounted like they are on the circuit board inside.

    According to the Olds service manual also, the switches must be replaced when the bulbs are burned out.

I have a 2005 chevy 2500 diesel truck. about a 1/3 of my dash lights are not light anymore. Several on the starting wheel, my thermistate control and radio knob lights. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks...

unfortunately each one of these components is serviced as a unit, and you have to replace the entire component such as steering wheel buttons, hvac controls, radios, instrument clusters, I know its hard to believe but the bulbs are not replaceable, and always burn out. I have worked at a gm dealership for years and see it all of the time. sorry for the bad news

Fix lights in steering wheel - 04 DeVille

Steering wheel lights do not have bulbs you can change. The switch is a sealed asembly with an integral light. Each one costs around $110 at the dealership.

Heated seats have wires inside a fabric cover located betwwen the outside seat skin and the inner foam. Over time, they burn out. You can buy replacements from the dealer and have either them or an upholstery shop install them.
