Great writeup! I did the bulb replacement just now and the fog light button and cruise control buttons now illuminate. Thanks a lot.

Just stumbled across this thread and all I have to say is thank you! Not only has it been 2 years since my fog and cruse switches lit up but I also found a bulb that will work in my old skool Greddy gauges!

Thanks much, just did this to my fog light switch. Worked great!

Note to others, I found the bulbs in the drawers in the back of the store filed under Flashlight bulbs.

+1 My cruise button stopped lighting up yesterday so went out and did this. Also my fog light button never was lite since I've owned the car, went and replaced that one also with the same steps. It was really simple and easy to do! Thanks for the write up!

Thumbs up great post

I followed these instructions on my 99 Legacy station wagon. It worked like a charm. Only difference is that I had both lamps and so I replaced both. I also used a little dab of silicon on the end of the lamp, being careful to keep the wires separated, to help extend the Radio Shack lamp a little ways out of the mount, providing more light for the switch. Worked perfectly!

Thanks so much for posting this in such great detail!

Old thread bump. Thanks for the write up! I've been wondering for 1.5 years if the switch was supposed to light up or not!
