Okay so I just recently bought the and I love it but there is something that is really annoying the heck out to me. When I first got it I noticed that half the stereo light wasn't working and then I noticed that one of the vent control bulbs was out two.. Now 2 days ago that two of my power windows switch lights was out and now today one of my 4x4 button lights was out. What the heck is going own, I'm going to run out of bulbs to burn out pretty son and won't have any lights.. Please help if anyone know anything about it. I know there is led replacement but I couldn't find no plug and play.. I really don't have the patience to solder and have no experience in it.. Help!

I had problems with power window and door lock button lights and it all turned out to be bulbs not correctly installed in the bulb holders. Bulb tested good just the fine wire off the bulb was not making contact with the bulb holder. A little adjustment and I still have not need to replace a bulb..
Luck

What year...guessing it's not a newer ride (e.g. 3-5 yrs old) so these things wear/burn out over time. Some are bulbs (replaceable) and others aren't (soldered). One of the best options is to (1) check bulbs/replace the ones you can and (2) get used parts from salvage yard for the things you can't fix. Good luck!

FWIW...my 06 Colorado lost the front pwr window lights and some of the radio buttons are out too. Replacing radio soon (aftermarket) and plan to grab driver-side window panel from local u-pull-it. Eventually they'll get fix'd.

Replacement bulbs can be difficult to find and getting to them to will take some effort.

JK Lamps sells the OEM incandesant neo-wedge replacement bulbs, but most guys opt to convert to LEDs.

Here's a how-to on the door switches that will help. It shows how to take the controls apart which is most of the job.

Here's another that covers the HVAC controls.

Here's one more on the headlight switch.

I'm sure the bulbs in the radio can be changed as well, but I don't have any personal experience with the OEM radio. I think Clint aka @captainrab had done some LED upgrades on the factory radios. Clint has an excellent reputation for his LED conversions and offers a quick turn-around.
