October 13, 2010I have a `05 silverado and I have several buttons on my dash that have gone out. The light behind one of the manual dual climate control slides on the ac has gone out. Also the stereo has the volume knob, the band/tape-disc and type buttons out on it. Does anyone know if any these can be replaced?

October 13, 2010try hitting it. that always worked on mine, and a buddys that was the same body style as yours. while this wont fix it permanently, it may just work for you.
October 14, 2010Good question. Does anyone know how to replace any of the dash lights when they go out. Someone with true knowledge.
October 14, 2010They are not easy to replace. You have take the unit apart and be good at soldering. These are small bulbs and you have to be careful. I have some lights out on the radio and have learned to live with it.
October 14, 2010The lights behind the headlight switch, and hvac controls can be purchased at radio shack. The bulb you are looking for is a 12v/50mA bulb.Think they are 1.69 each. They have to be unsolidered and new bulbs soldered in. They also have led bulbs but do not know what size to get, but i know you will need resistors for those. Think they are 8 bulbs ib the HVAC panel.
Hope this helps

October 17, 2010Thanks for all the good info. The heater control lights came back on for now. Z71maniac your right, giving it a good smack was my first attempt, tried a little harder and it came on, go figure. Going to keep the bulb info in mind if they go out again.
