I finally replaced the Backlights, using a guide from a person at www.answerbag.com
who wrote:

(i've got an 04 limited. i just soldered in new bulbs for the lighting controls panel (5 #272-1092) and the digital HVAC panel (1 #272-1092 and 5 #272-1154). steering wheel control bulbs are next. )

Just buying a cheap Used one may be the best, if you are not good with dis-assembly and soldering small electric bulbs
Depending on the style you can get a Used One from an online junkyard for 25-50 USD

The most difficult part is getting the Climate Control Module out of the dash, to make the soldering new bulbs repair. The wood-grain Bezel needs to come off, BE CAREFULL, its long and flexible and can crack easy if the wrong pressure is applied or its cold outside or cold in the car cab. Its held in the dash with GM friction clips ( pain in the %$#) and 2 Phillpis screws behing Glove Box door. I worked the pull- pressure from the A/C vent on Right, left-ward to the center, and from Steering Column right-ward toward the center. Once the Bezel is removed, the Climate Control Module is seen, with 4 push-tabs on each corner. BE CAREFULL pushing in the tabs....I broke off one as in pushed too hard. Pry out Right side while pushing 2 right-side tabs gently together. Repeat for the Left Side, while pushing 2 left-side tabs together gently. The Climate Control Module should pop out. Use a 3/8inch Nut Driver to remove the headless screws that hold the Climate Control Module PushButton plate to the box. This will expose the Printed Circuit Board for solder replacement of the Bulbs.

SOURCE: Transmission Traction "Off" light stays lit with Traction button

The traction control system is controlled through the Anti-lock brake system. The way it works is if one of your wheels starts spinning the ABS applys the brake to that wheel to transfer power to the oppsite wheel that is getting traction. If your ABS is bad then your Traction control won't work. To check it I would find a parking lot on a wet day. In an open space mash in the gas. if you hear the ABS system kick in and you don't squall the tires then your good. My guess is you won't. What I would be worried about is will my ABS work. When checking the traction control is a good time to check the ABS. Acclerate to around 15 mph, then mash the brake as your live depended on it. If you hear a motor run and feel a vibration or grind in the brake peddal, then it works.

SOURCE: Steering wheel lamps do not work (radio controls, temp, cruise)

The lights on the steering wheel are in the switches. To fix the lights, the whole switch needs to be replaced. Same thing goes for the Tempature Controls and radio. Overall, I think it would be very expensive to replace all of the switches to get the lights working. I have the same vehicle, and almost all of the lights are out.

I think the lights behind the gage controls are replaceable, although you still have to rip out most of the dash to get to them.

I have the auto-sense wipers, so I was leaving the wipers on all the time, and the would only work when needed. The bad part I finally found out about this was that while the wiper switch is on (even though they were not wiping), it caused all of the dash lights, switch lights and rear parking light to be on. I think this alone significantly cut down on the life of the bulb.

For now, I am just living without the lights. The temperature control is very expensive (just the part alone).

You can usually find the best price for these things at http://www.rockauto.com

SOURCE: on my 1994 Olds 98 the traction control shows off

There should be a button on the shifter to engage the traction control, it is a variation on abs where wheel speed in the drive wheels is monitored and brakes are used to slow down the faster moving one, which would probably indicate a loss of traction. Normal operating mode should be off, on for slippery or snowy weather.

Sounds like you have had a lot of fun with this rig
#1 - replace the stereo - that's cheaper than sending yours out for repair.
#2 - Make sure your cooling system is full. You can get an air lock/bubble in the heater core that is really difficult to resolve sometimes. When the cooling system starts to get low on coolant - the heater core is the first to get starved. Physically feel the temperature of the heater hoses at the firewall - they should both be hot - if one is hot and the other not - there is a restriction in the heater core. If neither are hot - your coolant level is probably low. With the engine running you can pinch the upper radiator hose which should force flow through the heater core. Try those things - if you get sufficient heat from other modes - i.e. DEF VENT then your coolant level is not an issue. your controls are your problem - and is this a Auto Temp control system (digital) or manual?
#3 sounds like the ground circuit for Pass side Brake light is not sufficient. Works OK until the park light is turned on. I presume a bulb from the drivers side that worked ok doesn't on the pass side (known good bulb) - the ground circuit needs repair.
#4 the illumination issue - Dash lights/buttons/switches - all those should illuminate together (dimmer controlled)
Radio buttons - refer to #1
Console symbols - wiring connections for the bulbs
Dome lights working ok from rear doors and not the front - probably issues with the front door switches
that's a lot of different things for one car

I have a 2001 potiac grand prix with no tail lights the same bulb work turn signal an brake lights they r fine ive checked all fuses and replaced all bulbs even replaced the light switch still no tail


no, they are not the same. The multifunction switch is on the steering column and controls wipers, turn signals, and hi/low beam headlights. Dash switch is on the dash and generally turns lights on and off and frequently also controls brightness of dash lights. I had a Camry that had the same thing happening...ended up having a toggle switch put in to control the tail lights...fixed the issue.

HUD will not light up


If you peek down inside the windshield, you'll probably see the HUD is working. A common issue is that the adjustment spring will break, making the HUD invisible because it is adjusted out of range. The spring can be replaced by removing the cluster then the HUD unit.

Lights out on steering wheel instruments of 200 Taurus


It sounds like you have some bulbs burned out in the cluster and cruise switches. I don't think you can just replace the bulbs in the switch. You can replace bulbs in the instrument cluster.
