Some electrical problems

Hi everybody I'm an Italian guy but with a 2007 US GC 4.7 Flex and I'm very enthusiast.
One week ago I changed the rec radio with a 2din pioneer and to make the wires go to the center console i took away the center console.
After reassembly all, the light of the two bank with information center and the lower with seat heaters etc etc went dark, also half of the climate control went dark.
When I try to switch on the ac the button flash about 3 times and switch off it seem to work but it's winter and I cannot check if the air is really cold...
I check all the fuses but nothing seems blown, all the connectors of the center console are in the right position and plugged.
I call my Jeep official garage and they said that probably one led for each bank is blown and a have to change both included climate control with a huge amount of money.
Now i found on the ebay motor US a new center console with all climate etc etc but before to buy useless stuff I'm asking for you help to know if someone had similar problem and how solve this...
Sorru for my rusty eglish...

Those lights are very small incandescent bulbs. they burn out, and also just quit working if mishandled. the little filament in the bulb is fragile.

So it's really possible that they burn out all together.
I have to apologize because the clima command works just fine...i didn't know that when it's in auto ac go by himself...
Now I only have to order new banks and try to repair sodering a new bulb on the clima control...

bulbs are separate from the controls working. if you have the units out and lightly drop them, this could cause the filaments to break.

you can change the bulbs in them but it requires soldering

Look at the posts on here about soldering new led bulbs in...$3 worth of bulbs instead of up to $150 for new controls. Its not that hard, even I did it.


ETA: Check this out first.

That I don't know, I only needed the hvac lights. Check that thread, I think it refers to the regular bank lights too.
