03 Civic A/C Light

I just bought a 2003 Honda Civic LX, and I noticed that the a/c button and the air flow button do not light up. The defost button lights up though. All three buttons are next to each other on the center dash console. When I say they don't light up, I mean they don't light up with the rest of the buttons (radio, climate control, etc..) when the interior lights are on. I am not talking about the green light that comes on when the function is being used. What do I need to do fix this problem?

Thank you.

its just a bulb. defrost has its own and the other two buttons share a light. take the console off, then the lower button piece, and youll see the twist socket to change the bulb. dealer has em for $1-2

MY defrost light stopped working also after the new radio was installed, its annoying but I am leery about taking that center console out again and messing with it. Trying to get used to it
