    Does anyone know which fuse I need to replace to get the lights on the ac/heater control knobs to work again? Thanks!

    The climate control lights are powered off the tail light fuse.

    The bulbs are likely burned out.

    The bulb has the base on it so you replace the whole thing. They twist out with a smaller flathead screwdriver. Simple straightforward job.

    You can easily improvise with plastic cutlery as suggested, but there's also stronger (and cheap) plastic trim panel tools for sale on Amazon/HarborFrieght/Autozone. Just make sure you use plastic so you don't marr the console up.

    You'd be suprised how handy these tools can be: https://www.amazon.com/KINGLAKE-Pan...rds=plastic+trim+tools&qid=1577801791&sr=8-15

    Bulbs don't come out of the socket, the whole assembly screws in and out for replacement.
