Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre
The cruise buttons and part of the heat/air buttons do not light up any more. Part of them do this is so nice for me when I am drving after dark because I can see the buttons and not have to try to feel which one is which, what is wrong and how can I fix

The bulbs are very inexpensive. They can be purchased at Radio Shack. Two bulbs cost about $2 per set. They are 12 volt, 60 milliamp and they come with long leads. To replace the bulbs in the steering wheel you must first carefully pry out the switch and the unplug it. Then you must carefully unsnap the switch housing. Take extra caution to not break any of the plastic snap fittings and do not lose any parts. The circuit boards contain the mini-lamps and they are soldered onto the board. Snap of the old bulbs , reatin the housing and the blue rubber light covers. Place the new bulb into the old holder, slip on the blue lens cover, snip the leads to about 1/4 inch, and then solder them onto the boards in the old place. Once soldered, carefully bend the bulb over to lay flat. Take the time to replace all of the bulbs. Re-assemble the switch and replace it in the steering wheel.
For the heat control dash lights the entire assembly must be removed. Replace the bulbs inthe same manner as above. The door lights do not need to be soldered, they have a holder that "unscrews" from the circuit board. Just remove the old bulb from the holder, insert the new bulb and twist the leads into place and snip off the excess leads. Then "screw" the holder back into the circuit board.
