    Default Map Lights

    Hey, quick question. I was looking to see what way the led's where fitted in the buttons, to activate the map reading lights, so i prized the cover off, with no problem. Having seen what way it was in, i reattached the cover, but the bulb wont come on when i push the button? any ideas?

    And before a smart ass says it - I did check the bulb it works fine! lmao

    That will be because they dont illuminate when you press them , they illuminate with dash illumination.

    yes , sounds like you have re-assembled the assembly incorrectly.
