the lights behind the A/C controls are little LEDs attached to a circuit board.

I don't know if anyone has taken them out because most people paint them a different color to match there interior scheme. I know that I couldn't get them out to change ...

Here a link to the parts list for the center console. The circuit board in part 43 on the A/C control.

Maybe someone knows confused

I took mine out to paint it. There are two small screws in the front. After removing those, you can technically pop the circuit board out. But, be careful, I cracked mine. The correct way to do it is to remove the AC control unit (the entire white piece). On the bottom, there are a few more screws. Remove those and the circuit board would just pop out easily. This would be a heck of a lot more work, of course.

Toyota does not sell the little bulbs by itself. You might have to buy the entire circuit board. ($55). I went to 5 different dealers in So Cal and they all told me the same thing.

I went on eBay and bought one off of a wrecked Celica for $20.

Mine burned out too, so I just installed a neon tube behind there and it lights up blue now =)

where did you get a neon tube that small? did you just break out the other bulb or something?
