I have the same problem.... It is an easy thing to fix. What it is, is the cable has jamed up in the casing, but you can manually pull and push the cable. On the drivers side of the car under the steering wheel above the gas/brake pedals there should be a bunch of wiring. To the right of all the wiring and mess there should be a cable if you reach in far enough. It will probablly take you a while to find it. It would most likley be surrounded by white plastic. once you find the cable you can pull it and push it, When you do pull/push it you will see the knob turn on your console.
If you still have any problems drop me an e-mail

yes you can replace it. the bulb is removed from inside the engine compartment. if the burnt out bulb is on the battery side you will likely have to take the battery out. the socket generally turns about a quarter turn or so... have a look to see if there is a large ring that you turn and remove first.
One important detail do NOT touch the bulb with your fingers as it shortens the bulbs lifespan.
Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

After showing the dealership this site and the problems that others have had. I insisted that they take a look at it and solve the problem. FINALLY, they admitted that there are lights and that basically it is a pain to fix because they need to order a new module. After one day in the shop, I now have lights for the climate controls in my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Do not let them tell you that it only is an option with the Limited. It is just flat out FALSE. I was so frustrated with my dealership because this is shady if you ask me, but they did fix it free of charge. Do your research, call JEEP themselves, and provide the dealership with facts and they should fix it. It's ridiculous how much work I had to do to get them to admit that the Laredo also had the option, but it failed. Don't back down!!!!!!!
