Dash Lighting Issue/Question

I have a "new to me" 2006 Sport and everything on my dash lights up great but the climate control dials. Does anyone know if this is would be a simple bulb issue or is it more complex? I'm just trying to findout before I dig into the dash because if it's to involved I'll take it back to the dealer since I've had it less than a week. Thanks in advance!

The bulbs are soldered on to the climate control circuit board, so in Chrysler's eyes, you have to replace the whole panel. Way to go! Wonderful engineering! Since you've only had it a week, take it back and have the dealer fix it. Depending on the version, the panel costs $100+
