I have several lights out on switches on the console. heated seat switchs are one any ideas on what could be wrong? where would I get a schematic for the lights on the console area? The back ground lights for the heated seat it shows the seat when its on the yellow lights light up on the switch. Also back ground light around the radio / heater / air are out so you can turn a switch far location of the fan and the yellow light moves but you can not see what you are

    The heated seat switches each provide a resistor multiplexed signal to its respective Heated Seat Module (HSM) through separate hard wired circuits. Each switch has an Off, Low, and High position so that both the driver and the front seat passenger can select a preferred seat heating mode. Each switch has two Light-Emitting Diodes (LED) which light to indicate that the heater for the seat is turned on. The heated seat switches and their LEDs cannot be repaired. If either switch or LED is faulty or damaged, the entire switch assembly must be replaced.
    As for the other lamps, you don't mention which ones, some are replaceable, others are not. The LEDS are not replaceable and the associated component must be replaced.

    I agree for the most part with Johnny, I had the same issue. My fix was to replace all the bi-pin (incandescent) lamps that have burned out, (my LED seat indicators were fine).These can only be done using a pencil tip soldering iron, a little know-how and lots of patience. The bulbs used were Radio Shack 272-1154. You could try a salvage yard for the whole assembly but these are hard to find complete and in full working order. Good Luck
