Replace heater control panel bulbs

I have a 2004 Nissan Altima. All three light bulbs to the AC/Heater climate control system are burned out. I have removed the climate control unit and disassembled it. How do I know what size bulb to us, how do I remove the old bulb and where can I purchase the replacement bulbs?

1. use old bulbs as samples by gently removing them with a soft cloth.2. Go to autopart shop or walmart,target or Canadian tire and you will find replacement bulbs. 3. Make sure you mark or place each old bulb into an envelope so you know where to put the new bulbs.

SOURCE: CLIMATE CONTROL BULBS DEAD SEBRING 2000

According to the Chrysler manual the heater/AC control unit bulbs can only be serviced by an "authorized service center after removal from vehicle" If your comfortable taking it apart to look anyway it probably can't hurt.

SOURCE: Light bulbs behind the 3 heater/ac controls

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)

SOURCE: How to replace bulbs for ac/ heater control unit

1. Remove the dash around radio (just clips)
2. Remove 2 screws pointing up . (You do not need to remove screws which are parallel to the floor)
3. Remove screw pointing up on the bottom of the dashboard on left side of the driver (near left leg).
4. Remove 2 screws pointing up in the instrument cluster area.
5. Put car in 1st gear and gently remove black plastic surrounding instruments (it will have ait vents, so slide it carefully out not to damage foam insulation on air ducts; start on the bottom hear steering column) ; unplug connectors to clock and emergency flashers.
6. Remove 2 screws, now exposed, near instrument area, holding dashboard. (that was what I spent most time on, I didn't know about this screws.
7. Now gently remove (or move up) dashboard (around instrument cluster and heating controls.) Start next to ignition (careful not to damage the bulb next to the ignition.
Since you only need to get to the heating controls block, I only move up the dashboard next to it.
8. Remove 2 screws that hold the heating control and slide heating control out . This step is unnecessary If you totally removed the dashboard.
9. Pull out lever controls for fan speed, zone and temp
10. Use the screwdriver (flat) to pry 2 plastic tabs on top and on the bottom of heating control so black cover can be remover.
11. You did it! two bulbs are going to be under the cover.

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.

3G Mitsubishi Eclipse Climate Control Light Bulb Replacement


The control panel for the heater and A/C must be removed. Suggest you get Chilton's manual from the library. It will take you through step by step with pictures. To summarize: 1) Remove trim panel covering radio and heater controls. 2) Remove radio. 3) Disconnect the two heater control cables from the control panel. The trick to removing the cables is to compress the "claw" spring holding the cable by pressing a screwdriver from the underside of the control panel to release each cable.4) Remove control panel. Take to a workbench. From the backside of the control panel at the top, notice two large holes through which you can access the V2 Toshiba bulb holders. Turn them a quarter turn to remove them and the bulbs. The bulb is a common #74 bulb.

The ac and the heater does not work


If the ac and heater doesn't function any longer, you have either blown a fuse for the climate control or you need to replace the climate control unit, on the dash.

No heat in car blower works,thermostat was changed coolant level good car runs hot


problem could be in the mode switch + check fuse to heater and ac mode switch.if blown your air door wont open and let heat enter inside car.if fuse look good you could have faulty mode switch.if you have climate control if you have a bad in vechicle sensor that will effect air door to open let heat in.this problem would be best for dealership.if dealing with climate control units.you need a quick fix.too cold outside not to have heat in car.

How do I change the bulb that lights the heat/ac controls on my 2004 Jetta


If I remember rightly, on a mark 4 golf, 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.

Display on climate control screen is out and i don't see any type of description on fuse panel that fits this problem. AC, heater, fan, everything else works but the display.


U must remove the climate control unit from the dash and remove the top cover of the unit, u will find a tiny twist in light bulb socket with a tiny little light bulb, this provides the backlight for the AC/heater display, u can buy the bulb at any auto parts store, couple of bucks.
