    you wanna change the LED in the fog light button?


    just pop it out with a flathead and disconnect the wires.
    should be able to get it open from there

    awesome thanks guys. the led in the button that lights up when you turn it on died and for some reason it really annoys me when an interior led is dead and i dont know how to change it.

    yeah up until i looked at that link they gave me i didnt know that the part that says cruise and the little fog light picture button are supposed to light up as well lol. so i thought i only had one dead bulb but really i have three. i already have the buttons out and the bulbs out too. now its just a matter of getting new ones. its a good thing this site exists cause i never would have figured that out on my own. i mean i knew how to get the buttons out but i didnt know how to get the bulbs out of them.

    Anybody Notice the Fog Light Button Doesn't Light in Really Cold Weather?

    Anybody notice the fog light button doesn't light up in really cold weather? A week or so ago, up in Breckenridge, it wouldn't light up one evening, and I thought the bulb had blown, but the next morning, it lit up. It happened again a couple of days ago when it was subzero.
