Get on the floor on the driver side with a flashlight. Behind the brake pedal is a bracket and the brake swicth. If the rubber stopper is gone, worn down or broken, replace it or fill the gap with epoxy glue.

Once repaired/replaced check that when you press the brake, the lights come on and when you release it the lights go off. You ll need a helper for this.

Check the upper brake pedal bracket for play. If it moves too much, take it apart, clean it up and grease it to make sure it doesnt cause the brake swicth to stay pressed.

Hope this helps, please vote :)

Command lcd backlight

The LCD backlighting is LEDS and.they are integrated.. unless you have some good electronics knowledge replacing them will be next to impossible.. the only other way is to replace the entire unit either from the dealer or a savage yard.. good luck

2005 Buick Lesabre. left side radio buttons backlight, steering wheel buttons backlight, and temp panel button backlighting are all out, but good on the right hand side and two other right side buttons on...

These are actually the bulbs that have went bad. It would be quite expensive. I have a 2004 that has done the same thing. No lights behind any buttons any more except the ac heater controls I replaced last year.
