Welcome to Just Answer and thank you for asking your question. I look forward to helping you fix your vehicle.

 

I will try my best to help you and in order to do that, I need you to describe the issue in as much detail because I only know as much about your vehicle as you have told me in your post, so my answer will be based on what you have posted. Please include all the small details that may seem insignificant such as warning light, codes that you have scanned and how this started. I will also try my hardest to help you avoid a dealer or shop, but with the modern vehicles an electronics, there may come a point that we cannot avoid this, and if that is the case, I will tell this.

 

My goal is your satisfaction and I ask that you not accept unless you are satisfied, but if you are satisfied, please accept so I can receive credit for my work and time. Positive Feedback is greatly appreciated and bonuses are always welcomed.

 

Please feel free to reply as needed.

 

Are all the lights on or just a couple?

Just the ones that control where the air will flow

This bulb is part of the circuit board for the heater control and must be changed with the heater control. You can try www.gmpartdirect.com for a lower price on a new unit.
