Stupid question: A/C switch

I'm assuming the A/C buttons are supposed to have backlighting when the headlights are on and more intense lighting when the buttons are pushed?


If so, the backlight in mine seems to have failed.
Does anyone have a working A/C switch with working lighting I could buy?

I'm not positive, but I don't think they light up more when on. They should be backlit when the headlights are on though.

They are available new for ~$!00. A cheaper alternative is to open yours up and replace the bulb/LED.

The light behind the snowflake only comes on when the button is pushed in for AC function.
