    Question heater controls no power for bulbs???

    hi guys,part of my tinkering today was to replace all the dash n bits with blue LED's got the heater stripped down and replaced the push fit bulbs with blue leds only to find they did not light up (they never lit up before i touched it as this was what made be decide to strip n LED it)..

    tested them with the LED's in both ways around just to make sure it was not me. tried them with the light switch on parking lights and dipped beam settings and still nothing (this also includes trying bulbs both ways round again.).

    got bored at this point so i put a known working normal bulb in the holder and that refused to light up, all the rest of the dash lights up fine and works without a problem except the three bulbs around the heater controls and the re-circ button.

    there seems to be no power going to them at all!?!?

    is this a common fault or something easy to fix?

    ive checked all the fuses in the box and there all fine not one blown fuse. im missing the fuse cover so i hve no idea what any of the fuses do at present.

    thanks

    Heater controls only light up with the ignition on in the MK3's, you don't mention that you had that on?

    Erm.... i might need to check that and get back to you

    I was goin on veccy experience as they all light up without the key in the ignition so i did what most normal people do and waste time on the forum by making assumptions
