Nope, I haven't found anything yet. I replaced fuse 14 with 3 other 7.5a fuses but still the same problem. My max ac, ac, re-circulation, and defrost/feet buttons aren't illuminated. Everything else is on. It's really annoying lol.

Okay, I tapped my dash a couple times around the heater control area and those lights came back on! Now my sel +-, vsa, hazard lights don't work.

OP and others with only a few out...since other dimmable bulbs are working then the fuses will be fine, It is simply a case of bad neo-wedge bulb assemblies. Plastic base and glass bulb.

I did notice recently the HVAC unit is 7 total bulbs, (5 + 2) was thinking it required more.

Last poster, do you have other dimmable bulbs that are working ?? Hazard ? Sel/Reset buttons ?

i have bulbs just in case.. i bought some when i saw you posted on someone else's thread..

but my fog light switch isnt an OEM switch and the lights dont work on it either.. and it stopped working the same time everything else did. i am gonna test the fuses.. they look like they are fine but there might be a hairline crack in it or something.. its just weird that they all stopped working at the same time.. when i installed my HU..

Pretty sure it is bulbs, they run hot and are prone to fail over time. If you rattle them around removing pod it will knock the filaments loose.

Your fog switch illumination is hard to say. May be a soldered in bulb.

If you had an open fuse it would effect all the bulbs (and others)

I have the same issue.. All the lights for the dimmer and VSA on that side are all out and the rear defrost and the recirc are out... Just too lazy to figure out why they dont work

you can test the fuse or the connectors / harness where they plug in at .... you will have to remove the dash a few of mine went out past month just replaced the bulbs and good to go.Sometimes the bulbs get shorted out or lose connectivity.Use a multimeter and test to see if there is live feed to the connectors if so then its the bulbs.
