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.

How do I replace a climate control panel light bulb for a 2000 VW Cabriolet. I've pulled off the fan control knob and do not see a bulb?


the "bulb" is usually built into the switch/knob , i've never seen one that can be replaced without getting a new knob , or the other variation is an LED behind the panel , these are also non replaceable but can be repaired if you can find an auto electrician to carry out the job

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 climate control lights on my 2003 Jetta TDI wagon have suddenly gone out...is there a fuse or something I can check?


There is one bulb (for all three knobs) behind the center knob. Turn the knob to the straight up and down 12 o'clock position and pull the knob straight out. Wrap a soft cloth around the jaws of a pliers, that works the best. Pull the bulb out with a needle nose wrapped with a rubber band. The bulb is a sylvania 2721, available at most auto parts stores. You can also use a small piece of vacuum tubing to pull the bulb out. (pull straight out, don't twist it)
