if its a 91-94 legacy, they should have backlight on when lights are on, and they also have the in use light when pressed on. 2 lights.
you did not mention a year, so I cannot help with anything else, and nobody else can help either.
PLEASE state model and year.

From what I understand, it uses the same bulb as the back lighting in HVAC control panel. You'll have to disassemble the switch to replace it, but it's entirely possible and the bulbs are cheap from radio shack.
And yes it's a very common issue. Look in the New gen FAQ sticky at the top of the page and the first link in that thread is all about replacing bulbs.
