Does anyone know a quick fix or ??? my 90si rex's ac controller lights are all out. The buttons all work and I can hear the movement from vent to vent...any ideas guys?

Thanks!

are the bulbs burned out?

check the connectors and wires. since this is near the stereo, someone could have caused an open circuit to the lights while they were installing/servicing the stereo....

If it is the bulbs how do I change them...i'm not mechanically inclined.....I'd have to have step by step instructions. If you can help i'd appreciate it. Thanks!

The lights that dont' work on the heater/ac control are the little pictures of which vent is on....They don't light up. How do i fix them....is it an individual bulb for each button or i'm guessing it's one whole bulb. Please help. Thanks!

It's good to know that I'm not the only one that has this problem. I'm pretty sure that my bulbs are out. I hate to take my a/c control out and break it again.

gotta take off console and remove your radio, there are four screws holding the ac control unit in..three in front and one under,then slide unit down, there are four clips holding in face panel just pop it out and change the bulbs
