Question lights on my door controls are out

The lights for the unlock/lock button and my memory seat button on my driver side door controls do not work. Can someone please tell me how to change them, and what kind of bulbs to buy?
Thanks for your help.

I was just going to post the same problem. Anyone know if the bulbs are able to be replaced? Also I have a bulb out in my fan control on my steering wheel. Can the bulb be replaced in that also?

I disassembled my door switch housing and brought a bulb with me to advance auto to try and match it. I couldn’t find the one I needed so I bought the closest one and soldered it to the board. If all of your bulbs don't work then you might have a bad connection with the plug. Kinda odd that all the lights don't work at the same time.

I just replaced both the drivers and passenger side bulbs(3 in total). I brought the bulb to Radioshack and matched it to the best they had. Part # 272-1141. I had to do a little modification to the housing for it to fit back in the switch as well as strip the leads. Im sure there is a better bulb out there but I couldnt find it anywhere.

There is also a write up on here showing how to change the bulbs to LED's. That will show you how to disassemble the switch itself to get to the bulbs.

I found another post about this issue and someone mentioned he repaced his bulbs... I sent him a message and he sent me this link...

http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/...2zyFckOQ%3d%3d

I disconnected the unit and brought it inside and the top unclips and comes off.. then more clips gets the next cover off to expose the circuit board and sure enough... 2 bulbs. He mentioned that the bulbs culd be tight to untwist so some force is required. I just placed an order for my bulbs tonight! cant wait to get them,.... hope they fix the problem!!
