Check out this thread. Read it all the way through, there is a step by step photo sequence that is quite good. Also there are some YouTube videos showing how to upgrade from the factory incadecent bulbs to LED.

I need to do this too.

It should be the same procedure, the C/T light is just under a different access panel above the climate control access panel. I'm guessing it's the same bulbs for the C/T but can't say for sure.

I'll replace them all while I have it open - I don't feel like tearing my dash apart more than once. More than half of them have burned out already.

Thanks god on my jeep just the c/t button is gone. I don't know if is necessary to do all this trouble for a single light.. Maybe is better to wait that other lights ll shutdown.
Btw i can also buy more bulbs and change it all already... But you can show me the light type??

Thanks

These are the bulbs I used for the Message Center panel including the C/T button. They are smaller than the ones used in the Heater/AC control panel. The stock bulbs have a blue rubbery coating like plastidip which dims them down and changes the light to a bluish tint. I liked the way the white light looks so am keeping it that way. If I get tired of it later I can always put something on the bulbs.

Also, here is a picture of how I installed an additional light bulb under the "Message Center" button where there never was one before. Its pretty easy, just solder two short pieces of wire to terminals J10 and J12 so that the light bulb location will be centered behind the Message Center button. I never understood why Jeep didn't put one there to begin with.

I think when I upload pictures they are not visible until the moderator clears them. If you still can't see them, they are in my album.

The bulbs I got from Radio Shack, part #7219. I was originally going to change to LED but didn't want to screw with soldering in resisters.
