    What all lights up

    Since ive had my TA my steering wheel controls didnt light up. I took them apart and figured out that the bulbs were blew.. but does anything else light up besides the speedo cluster, radio and hvac? What about the door panels etc.. ?

    Other than radio and temp controls. There is a little light above the handle on each door and there is one in the ash tray as well. Also one on the fog light switch.

    If there are others then I'm in the same boat as you and don't know about them.

    The ones above the handle are really easy to replace. Just remove the switch assembly then pull off the piece behine the handle, after taking the screw out of course. Is right on the top of that piece. Don't remember the bulb number, but you can look that up in your local auto parts store. It's a tiny little thing.

    the lights above the door handles are pretty much worthless.

    They are there mostly for effect, and they do help on dark nights to illuminate the switches. I like 'em.

    maybe I'll try the LEDs cause the mine dont help you see anything and you cant really see any light at all even for a cool effect.
