I just replaced the bulbs in my "Hazard Warning Flasher" and "Rear Window Demist" switches. They have never lit up during my time with the car.

I got the new bulbs from a Mitsubishi dealer because that's closest. I have no idea what wattage the old bulbs were, or what the new ones are. But the switches are getting very warm! If this is normal wattage, no wonder these bulbs burn out so quickly.

The heater is to keep your body warm, the lighted, heated switches are to keep yourr fingers warm when pressing them.
