Interior lights out

So whenever I turn on my my headlights, I get a bulb out indicator on the dash. The only lights that work are the exterior lights, dome light. My speedometer light, climate control light, and radio lights don't work. So pretty much every light besides for the dome light and exterior light is out. I'm assuming that it is a blown fuse but I'm not sure which one.

Sounds like the dimmer on the dash lights is turned down to low/off. You might want to recheck all outside lights again.

Haven't looked yet - are the fuses the normal ones or the tiny ones?

Bulb out indicator only has to do with the exterior lights. If it comes on as you turn on the headlights, then it is one of the exterior lights that come on at that point.

Alright I'll double check tonight. The weird thing is that my dome light still works. And also there's no beeping noise that alerts me if I open my door with the headlights still on.

Bulb behind heater control knob

I had a burned out bulb, I removed the knob to replace it, and discovered that the previous bulb had been broken off. Any tips on how I remove it?

Hate to say it, but remove the light unit, turn it upside down and jiggle around til the old bulb glass drops out.

To be honest the front lights are really easy to remove in a few minutes (Just a few bolts - remove the grill, remove the two bolts holding the front bumper on at the top near the inner edge of the light units so u can pull bumper forward for a bit of room. The lights are just held in with 3 bolt/screws). Dont know about the rear light units.

Mission Complete!!

I managed to use needle nose tweezers to get around the remains of the bulb, was able to pull it out, and presto! after getting a sylvania 2721 from the the store, I have light on the climate control knobs!! It's the little pleasures in life !

It turned out to be easier than I thought, it was the just the small bulb behind the a/c heater knob.
