    L.E.D.'s in switches are fried, replace switches an all should be golden. Sorry but the lights are not serviced seperately.

    Would highly doubt a fuse is the culprit. To my knowledge there are no fuses that control just the lights in the passenger and rear window switches. I would pull the switches and check for power. Work your way back from there. If you want to avoid the hassle, pick yourself up a switch from a salvage yard. Shouldn't be more than a few bucks. Plug it in and see if it works. I'm not sure if the plugs are the same... I think they are... might want to pop the rear passenger switch and swap out the rear driver to see if the ligts work then. If they do, you'll have to replace switches.

    Good luck,

    Thanks for the info. But how do I access the individual switches? I don't see a way to. No screws to access the guts. How do I go about retrieving the switches to test? I just don't want to mess anything up in the process. I would appreciate any more advice.:great:

    Thanks Garagegoon. That is extremely helpful. Just what i needed! Pictures are better than a thousand words. Will try to get it done within the next couple of days, and reply on how things turned out. Thanks again.

    LOL, 4 year old thread.

    But hey, the lights went out on my door switches years ago. I might pick up some new switches soon.

    I am sure that it would not be all that hard to take them apart and replace the bulbs. I did it to my steering wheel controls. I think that all 8 bulbs cost me less than $8

    Yeah, I already took apart my doors back in December when installed new stereo speakers. I didn't think about the button lights then but it wasn't difficult to take it all apart. Those little button lights just aren't near the top of my lengthy "to do" list.
