That's only one bulb lighting up that entire panel. It's probably just loose or going bad.

You should be able to get to it from underneath that panel. Take off stuff til you can get in there, it's a bit of a pain but take your time and you'll be able to do this, no problem.

lights

yes azcorolla is right . bulbs are probably bad. the filament will come loose and then when you bang or hit a bump it will come back on when the filament touches again. the hazard and defrost buttons do have bulbs in them some are replaceble and some are not the dealer parts dept. can tell you.

The hazard and defrost use Neo Wedge bulbs that you can't find anywhere... the dealers just sell the entire switch assembly. Of course, you can find them online, even LED if you want.

LEDs should work, but keep in mind the bulb is about 5 mm in diameter so really only the Neo Wedge type bulb you probably won't have much luck.

Hi,
I don't know too much, but maybe it's a fuse? When I purchased my car, all my dash lights were out. Simply take out the instrument panel (it will only take 15 minutes, possibly half hour? - I did it in the auto part store parking lot so it couldn't have taken that long) and unscrew the bulbs and replace them. It sounds like a hard task, but isn't really too much work. Additionally, what work it is pays off since you can see your instrument lights at night! Hopefully this helps!
