Good info. While my bulbs all work, I don't care for the fact the climate control bulbs are green, while the radio and surrounding bulbs are white. I have played with the idea of replacing the bulbs with variable color LEDs, but honestly I have not gone beyond the thoughts of "that would be cool". :)

I have the same issue with my 2011 LX-P. Would you mind me asking how you replaced the bulbs (dash removal and finding bulbs)?
You have to remove the radio, it's a PITA, but not hard

To get the climate control out, you must first remove the gear shift handle and center console. The screws to the radio/climate control unit are under the radio after you remove the center console.

I've done it because I had to replace one bulb already, and now another one is burned out. I think I'm gonna just replace the rest of them while it's apart.

If I could change the LEDs on the instrument cluster, I'd change everything to soft red or orange, ala BMW. But to only have that on the climate control would look ridiculous.

Mine stopped working shortly after I bought the car (which was used at the time ~60k miles). I found that if I tapped the unit below/above the affected lights just right, sometimes they would come back on. Then, eventually, the problem just went away. It's been nearly 2 years now and the lights all still work.

Something similar happened with the odometer cluster on our 2002 Accord. Those lights didn't work for ~2 years and then on a road trip to Vegas they started working again. Also still fine and that was about 4 years ago.

All I'm saying: give it some time and maybe it will fix itself. It was certainly easier than tearing apart the dash on either car.

I can say i have the same problem, same lights burned out, and this does help. I would love to replace them and not have to stop hitting it as a solution. Hitting it is more of a GM way of fixing stuff. :lmao:

I would agree except they've been working for about 15 months without any 'hitting'/tapping.
