Hello all, acquired a '96 OBW this summer and slowly have been repairing all the minor stuff, but I am dumbfounded with this one.

On the instrument panel, do all the buttons, switches & radio/clock light up at night when the headlights are on?? When I say buttons, I mean the ones that are used for the heat and air flow, as well as the dial for the speed of the fan. Mine do not light up and neither does the clock. I've checked the fuses (under the hood) and everything seems good, nothing blown. Is there another fuse bank I am missing or do these buttons just not light up???

any help would be appreciated, especially those of you who have the same model and year car

TX for the info, I must have brainfarted, I would never have thought to use the word "climate control", but that is exactly what I needed...this seems to be a problem of epidemic proportions. I will give the fix a whirl this weekend and hope that bulbs are my only problem.


TX again.

actually they are cheap rump roast OE bulbs, the radio shack ones last longer. you wil need good light, lots of patience, and a good needle nose pliers .. i even think the radio lights are replacable, but i always chucked the factory radio for an aftermarket.
