AC controls backlight!?

My AC controls backlight is not working. I can't find the fuse to check to see if its blown. Has this happened to anybody and do you know which fuse it is? HELP

yes it happens to me every second or third time i start up, you just have to give it alove tap.
I have tore apart the dash 2 or 3 times fowling wires trying to see if its hitting ground somewhere, but still nothing. I am woth you hope someone has an answer.

mine just started doing that a week ago. Doesn't bother me too much though, just slap it and it comes back. Every car I've owned did that. In my chevy it was the front speakers, slap the dash comes on. In my honda prelude it was the passenger headlight, slap it, it comes back. Nothing wrong with a little love tap if it makes things better

As much as I enjoy slappin my bitch around, I don't think that will work. Here's why, I has never worked. Its been like that since I bought it. (Used BTW)

Your LED is burnt out. Bitch slapping the dash causes the filiment to vibrate. When it strikes the other side, the electrical current is enough to hold it in place. When you shut the lights off, it "breaks" free again.

Same thing in my truck. The center knob for the temp lights up, but the fan speen and the vent control knobs are dark.

Are these bulbs or LED's? Has anyone ever replaced them?

They are bulbs... I had to replace mine already too...
The dealer wanted $15 per bulb

I ended up buying/using these:

^^They are only $2.49 each!
They are dimmer than the original bulbs, but they still get the job done...
Plus, if you buy these, you get a choice of color...(Blue, Green, Red, White, Orange)
