u can get condoms which are light cover...but dont really work

or you can get a neon and place it behind the ac controls which works the best

I changed my A/C panel lights.Now it's Bright neon blue.
I went to Advanced AutoParts and bought OPTX 6" Ultra mini neon (BLUE) for $17. And simply install it in(It also comes with adaptor). Looks very nice thumbsupSorry do not have pictures yet.
You can also get 3" neon it will be easier to install(i do not think you will need to modify enything).

P.S.To install 6" neon in to your A/C control panel you will need to modify black frame inside of your A/C control panel(cut it a little bit on the top of each side) For 6" tube to fit in (it's no flexible). wave
Here is link to e website were you can buy it. Click Here!

Neons are easy to install if you can route the wiring correctly and slide the neon through the black frame holding the two buttons on. Just make sure they are flexible neons.

I tried led lights, and they only shine light in one direction and not out of the sides. Sucks.
