    Is the climate control panel illuminated?

    I have the manual control panel and only the 2 left knobs are illuminated. Not the recirculation knob or mode control. Is that normal or the bulbs burned out?

    The same thing happened to my Hvac control lights two weeks ago, but the two right knobs would turn on after I start the car, but once I turn one of those knobs the light would turn off then back on, and stay on. Now it stopped doing this altogether. I bough a pair of light bulbs once they actually go out. The bulbs are Sylvania 2721

    They should all be illuminated.

    OK two bulbs burned out behind the faceplate. Replaced them and all good. Bulbs are not covered by warranty.

    Good to hear, and this a very easy DIY. Where did you get the bulbs? I got a pair off ebay for $4.00

    If they burn out again I highly suggest LED lights as opposed to an actual bulb. A 10 pack is probably $5 on Amazon or eBay.

    I got a 10 pack of Sylvania from WorldPac a year ago for $8.

    Mine had a connection issue inside the shifter column (so I was told.) The lights on half of the knobs would flicker sometimes and be generally annoying. It was fixed under warranty when they replaced the shift boot retainer ring that was also broken.

    Mine did the same thing, but it just fixed itself.

    Dear FIAT420, I would love to know how to fix this myself as my car is no longer under warranty. And suggestions? Thank you.
