    Have a few questions.

    Firstly, are the AC/Ventilation control panel meant to light up with the headlights on? Only the AC switch lghts up on mine. Also are the hazard/demister switch meant to light up as well?

    The other thing is, I have power windows in my SX/GTS. They both work great, except the passenger window doesnt go up from the drivers switch, however it works fine from the passenger switch. If you however hold the switch down to lower the pass window from the pass switch, it goes down, but if u then also push the button on the drivers switch for it 2 go up, the window simply stops going down, an doesnt move, however it should be going up. Cleaned contacts in both switches. Would this be the drivers switch gone?

    The AC/Ventilation control panel and hazard and demister buttons are meant to light up with the headlights on, as well as the power ect and cruise control buttons.

    99% of the time the problem with those is bad solder joints on the back side. If you have an iron its very easy to pull the unit out and just reheat up all the major joints. I bet it will clear up your problem. As for the hazard and defog buttons the bulb comes out of the back of the switch very easy just grab a couple next time you are at the wreckers and stuff them in your pocket

    If you have a conscience like me then I just stuff a few bolts and screws and bulbs in my pockets and when I go to pay for my big items I just tell them I have a couple misc screws and things and *most* wreckers won;t care as long as you are buying other stuff
