    I have a 2004 Silverado 1500 ext.cab 4wd, 4.8L. I noticed the other day that my passenger side climate control hot and cold adjuster light is out. Then i saw that the drivers side was out but when i touched it it came back on. Any expertise or advice is much appreciated.

    I had that same problem with my truck after getting my alarm installed. The light would be off but when I flicked the panel it would come back on. The way I fixed it was by taking the dash apart and checking the wires in the back. Sure enough they were a little lose so I pushed them in real good and haven't had a problem with them since. Hope this helps.

    Any Luck ?

    Blazerado .... My drivers side climate control light just went out also a few days ago and hasn't came back on by touching it or flicking it .... Did you end up having to replace the bulb ? .... it sounds like you just had a bad connection though !?

    you have to break into the HVAC to fix those bulbs.

    Gee, thats great ! ..... is it possible to break into it intelligently without destroying the unit/controls to replace those bulbs .... and put it back together intelligently ?

    Or is this a .... " Leave it to a Professional .... job "

    leave it to a profesional job.

    Maybe it will just be cheaper to buy another HVAC from a junkyard or ebay.

    When i got the LED bulbs done in my HVAC i noticed they had to break into it, to get into the bulbs. Also i think there Soldered in there.
