Hello everyone...

A while ago (year or so) i had the heater core in the car changed. Ever since, the buttons associated with the AC on the dash are no longer lighted. The other night, I noticed they happened to be working, but as soon i pressed one of the buttons, the lights in the buttons went off again. Anybody know what it could be? I thought the light bulbs inside the unit all burned out until i saw the lights on the other night. The plugs behind the unit are secure, i've checked. Thanks in advance.....

In the a/c pushbutton itself there are 2 bulbs, remove wood trim to replace them.

Do a search on the subject! This is the easy way to replace them. After you remove the wood trim, you will see two holes cover with aluminum foil. Inside each hole, there is a light bulb. I use any rubber hose to twist and "catch" the light bulbs and remove/insert the old/new light bulbs. Obviously, buy 2 light bulbs BEFORE removal and get appropiate diameter rubber hose. Good luck!
