Default Several Dash Lights Out

Picked up another Bonneville last week, an '05 SLE w/ 37,000 miles on it. Very nice car, an executive lease turn-in, apparently. Overall in very good shape, but a few little things. The dash has several inoperative lights; the cool side of the heat control **** on the left, and driver'* heated seat indicator as well. There is no light on the floor shift indicator either. Any info on how to remove the dash panels to replace these bulbs? Or what bulbs are needed? How about the position indicator on the floor shift?

Thanks,

Mark

anytime i went back to the dealer about that problem they would always tell me that it was a fuse that was blown not the lights. but it might be different for yours.

I checked the fuses, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to check them again.

For the HVAC unit, there are two incandesent light bulbs inside. The one on the left must be burned out. Can be replaced by a tech, but it is not a normally servicable part.

The Drivers Heated seat indicator also has 2 incandesent light bulbs inside. These really however are not replaceable. Best option is just to order a whole new switch assembly and replace it.

The shifter console I show has a lamp that lights the shift indicators and should be replaceable. I cant seem to find a good picture of the area in the FSM though. But the schematics do show a lamp there that is replacable.
