Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre
The Panel lamps on my 2003 Le Sabre don't work. This includes the steering wheel for the XM Radio Controls, Cruise Control Set/Accel., On the dash the lights for the Temperature COntrols out out as are the lower left quadrant of the XM Radio/CD/Cassette Player. Lights behind the gage controls (Trip Odometer 1/2 switch, gages, etc). Is this something I can Fix or do I have to take it to the Dealer $?$?$?
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).
