Default 94 ssei interior light problems.

So I have a 1994 ssei with about 63k miles on it and its fully loaded. Next to the shifter there are several buttons for Performance shifting, normal shifting ect ect. Well the lights under those buttons for the Performance and normal shifting and another one arent turning on like the rest. And also when I push the button for performance button the ON light isnt working either. Any suggestions as to what to do?

Those buttons are illuminated by tiny bulbs. The piece can be extracted and the bulbs changed.

Someone that has a TC pod laying around please post a pic of the side where you can see the base of the bulbs I remember seeing..

Is there a reason why merely changing the bulb wouldn't be the proper fix and usually much easier?

It is possible that a connector or something is also loose underneath and that is not supplying the power to the buttons.
