Default Climate control panel lights

I have 2003 grand voyager 2.5 ltd xs.
Does anybody know if I can buy replacement bulbs for the climate controls, or do I need to buy a full new panel.
Has anybody had a similar issue?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi
I've just had a look at my work shop manual PDF. There's no mention there of bulbs in the Climate control panel . Are they all out? if so my guess is that they are LEDs & the power isn't getting to them. Try removing the panel & wiggling the plugs on the back of it.

Have a search through the forum - I remember there was a discussion about this a over a year ago, there was a way to replace the bulbs- chrysler's solution is a new circuit boad, I believe, at very silly money.

edit - here it is: https://www.chryslerforum.com/forum/...l+bulb+climate

The bulbs can be replaced with little bulbs from Radio shack they are small 2 pin bulbs- carefully take the control apart. You will see the bulbs in the circuit board.
Carefully touch the solder with a cheap solder pen and wiggle the bulb out, take it to radio shack and match it up- then put it back together the same way by heating the solder up a bit and slide the new bulb in, trim the wires and you are done.

Default Hobby/model-shops have them

Similar bulbs can be purchased at most serious hobby-shops as these tiny little bulbs ar often used in model traffic signals, model lamp posts and model trains. Look for "grain of wheat" bulbs, or only wheat bulbs.

Can also use LED, but if it is originally used standard glow bulbs, LED will need a resistor. There are som LEDs whith buildt-in resistors for 12v voltage.

Also note that if it is originally used standard bulbs and the instrument lights are dimmable, LEDs are not. LEDs will not dim with a standard dimmer, just work, or not work (on/off).

At last note that LEDs are voltage sensitive as to which leg get positive and which get negative(ground) voltage.
