I had the same problem on my 07 and it turned out to be caused by the bulbs getting too hot and melting the surrounding plastic which opened the circuit powering them. I was able to fix the problem by removing the bulbs and cleaning the sockets allowing the bulbs to seat correctly. The lenses snap off to give you access to the bulbs. If you are not familiar with how interiors of cars come apart, I would not suggest doing it as you may crack the lens.

    This was very helpful to me as I experienced the same situation with the bulb getting too hot and melting plastic. The lenses to snap off easy if you gently pry near the middle. Thanks!

    I also had the bulbs getting hot enough to melt the plastic ...no lights for over a year now...bought new bulbs which came complete with a new socket from the Chrsyler dealer..part no.L0000pc5-79 also 08-044-001 on invoice...unfortunately these did not quite fit in ...just a bit different body. Dealer said thats all they show for it. The new bulb socket is closed on the bottom, but the old one was open with contacts on the bottom .. so I cleaned up one of the old sockets and pulled the bulb out of the new one (bulb marked HT 579) straightened out the wires, pushed them through old socket and pushed the wires into the contact slots. Well still in the dark.. plus out 1 old socket which the dealer threw out for me as I didn't think I would need the old melted socket. Now what ??? any suggestions ?? thanks John

06 Chrysler town and country map lights inop


If they are like mine, they are defective and shorted out. I pulled mine out (2007 model, but still the same) and they were burnt and when I put a new one in, it arced and sparked. My brother-in-law had the same experience. Chrysler needs to recall this and fix it. Until then, leave them alone.

How do you get access to the center overhead console lights


To remove the cover start on the windshield side, the pointed side. Use a very small flat head screwdriver. Slowly pop the cover down. Do not do this to the seat side of the cover. The tab to turn light on/off is on the seat side. Bulb twists out counterclockwise

I very gently pried on the outer curve of the clear cover. It snapped out easily. Then I noticed it only clips in to place on the left and right side of the widest part of the cover. I was then able to simply twist the bulbs out socket and all.

Looks like it is pretty easily removed.

Use a small screw driver and pry open the garage door opener storage bin. You will see 1 screw there that you will remove.
Pull the front of the overhead console down and remove the console from the console retaining clips.
