    Of the 6 buttons in this cluster, the first 2 didn't light up last
    night; 1) Auto/Off, 2) Temp.

    The Service Manual I have is the 2000 LHS, 300M, Concorde and Intrepid
    orange manual from DaimlerChrysler.

    I'm having trouble finding the right page that shows what I might be
    involved in if I choose to replace these bulbs (and hopefully not a
    entire expensive panel). A picture of the panel is on page 8E-4.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction, or if a book isn't readily
    at hand but the general knowledge is.... comment and give me an idea how
    involved and expensive this might be please.

    Did the brake switch recalibration work?

    Hi Greg. I haven't seen the mechanic yet but... the incident never
    recurred. So....???

    I would still keep an eye on it, and recalibrate anyway, it only takes a
    few seconds. Nothing like getting back to the car in the middle of
    nowhere to find out the brake lights ran the battery down to nil.

    I'll have to read that procedure again and get into. Thanks Greg.

    P.S> You wouldn't happen to know anything about those ATC control panel
    lights would you?

    All I can tell you is what you already know from the FSM. I seem to
    remember it calls for cluster replacement when the embedded lights fail.
    :( To help avoid burnout, I've always kept the lights on the minimum
    usable brightness.
