Hello... These bulbs are not normally replaceable. Except when the units are replaced. Ex. The Heater Control Assembly replaced would replace the bulbs.
One thing could be causing this is, The brightness switch could be dirty. Try cleaning it with some electrical cleaner.

If this does not help you might consider taking it to a mechanic for further troubleshooting....

Good Luck....

Panel lights not lighting up

The panel where the ac/heater controls light up with 2 tiny bulbs placed right behind the round controls that turn the ac/heat on and the one that turns the setting from red to blue. theres 2 screws holding the panel on the dash and those are right under the radio. You'll need some needle nose pliers to get to the bulbs and they sell the bulbs at walmart.

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.

1995 Honda dashboard will not illuminated, all other lighs works. I also check the dimmer knob to make sure it was turn up. Is it hard to replace the light bulb in the dash. Does anyone have a diagram...

The dash board has many light bulbs and the gear shift and the window switch all work on this circuirt. The radio if its stock turns up and down on this circuit too. The running lights are relaed to this circuit too as the runnings lights go out the dash does too. ( It's a DOT thang ) Lets you know that your running without tailights! But the dash can go out by it's self and aftermarket radios and their installers are the culprit. The dash light wire is in the stock radio harness and their used as ground wires and left to touch ground and blow the fuse. The fuse is called gaugesand it's a 5 amp or 7.5 amp. It's in the dash board fuse box behind the change holder that your left knee might hit if it were to hit the dash. If all the lights in the heater control and the gauges and the gearshift and the power window switch are all not working look for a blown fuse and it's cause. ( radio wireing ) or the running lights are out too and a bad marker light frunt or rear running lights. the park fuse may be blown and cause this and the dash lights won't work either. The dash dimmer switch can and does fail. It pops out by prying it out the frount theres 3 wires on it one is ground. one comes on with the lights and the other is the one going to all those light bulbs I just talked about. With the lights on one wire will be hot ( use a test light to check) A cheap one at the parts store or wally world only costs a few dollars at the most. If two wires are hot its on and it's godd one of these two will brighten and dim as you turn the switch. if only one wire is hot and the others stay cold the one that is hot jumpered to the one thats not black (ground) will make the lights work. Your right you could have bad bulbs but theres at least 15 of them and whats the liklyhood of blowing all of them at once ( doesn't happen unless theres a real bad problem involving crashes and jump starting. The cluster comes out by removeing the covers and then the speedometer cluster itself. If any of the lights work that the dimmer controls work and the gauges are't lit then this is the direction your going.

Instrument panel lights dont come on

check the fuses first, if fuses are good then check for power at dimmer switch, also are all dash lights out. meaning no night light for heater control or cig lighter or radio, if thats the case then follow my advise, but if all other lights do work then go straight to checking the bulbs in the dash cluster. hope this helps.
