Question about 2002 Honda CR-V

Light bulbs behind the 3 heater/ac controls

It appears that in my 2002 CR-V, that the light bulbs behind two of the three control knobs for the heater/ac are burned out. At night I cannot tell how hot or cold the temp is set or the direction of where the heat is coming out. How do I replace the bulbs? Does the dash have to come off or do just the knobs pop off?
Thanks,
Tom

To get to these you need to remove the box above by taking out the rectangular screw cover at the back and take out the one screw. gain access to the edge of the box with a flat tool and gently pull the box clear from its clips. now the 2 retaining screws should be visible that hold the controls in place after removing these you need to pull the controls quite firmly from its clips being careful not to damage the wiring to the back. this multiplug has to be released by pressing a retaing clip on the plug itself. once removed the whole unit needs to be separated into 2 halves being careful of static, by removing the screws on the back.once inside there are grey and white bulbs, white for the illumination and grey for the buttons (heated rear window and a/c etc)

Should 2004 Cavalier's climate control knobs & power window buttons light up. ? I'd like to replace the bulb or fuse if its possible


The bulbs in the control head for the heater/ac are nor serviced by GM but I think you can purchase them at radio shack if you can get the head out and apart I am pretty sure you can replace them.

Hi my name is eddie the heater blower little lights on the dash have gone out and my mirror light has gone out to


Behind the center knob for the heater controls there is a single small bulb that lights the whole heater control.
Move the switch to the vertical position, move the gear shift out of the way(shift to D or 1 with engine off, and set the parking brake). Use a pair of pliers with a rag to protect the knob and pull the center knob out. The bulb is directly behind it. The best way to remove and replace the bulb is with a piece of rubber vacuum hose. Gently push the hose over the bulb, then pull, the bulb should come out stuck in the hose.
You can install the same way, push the bulb in, then gently pull and twist the hose to release.
Be careful to align the bulb to its socket. If the knob is vertical the taper of the bulb base should also be vertical.
Then just push the knob back on, remembering that it is aligned to a vertical position.

Need more info on the mirror light. You mean the light in the mirror switch?

Heat blows out at floor only and ac does not come on even though light Indicates it's on. Has rear defrost and light works..Also has recirculating air button . I'm guessing the whole heating control in...


I would first remove the fuse for the heater control head for one minute and then put in and retry.
The control head could have locked up on you with a volt spike. The rear defrost switch does not go through the same circuit in the heat as the hvac controls. Could be a broken know also.
Could also be mechanical linkage on side of heater box above accelerator pedal may have broken or popped apart. or if electrical motor control may be actuator.

Is a bulb replacement procedure for a 2000 jetta for the heater dash controls panel ?


If I remember rightly, on a mark 4 golf2_bing.gif, the middle of the three heater control knobs pulls off. The bulb is right in behind it and lights up the whole panel. I would think a Jetta will be the same. give it a try.

I have a '99 Solara and want to change the light bulbs that illuminate the three control knobs for heater,fan and directional. Does the front console panel snap on and off or are there some hidden screws?...


Correct. This panel is held on tightly and plastic interior pryors help. One it is started tho it will come off. Some control knobs come off too. The heaterr controller once out then needs to be taken apart carefully to reveal the little bulbs. These are unique bulbs not run of the mill. I don't think they are the same as the dash bulbs.hth

VW Volkswagen Jetta 2004 instrument light out??


You need to pull off the knob and get a pair of really thin needle nose pliers in there to extract the bulb.  Match the bulb up at a parts store or the deal and install opposite of removal.
