    Default OBC Lights Died, bulbs look okay. Huh?

    So I pulled my OBC out to see if the keypad bulb was actually bad, turns out it looks ok (??), checked the other 2 working bulbs to compare (they all looked the same), put it all back together, now none of them work. !!! What the freak?

    So I've got a bunch of bulbs coming from BMA but meanwhile, are there other things I should look at? I gently scraped off what looked like some buildup on the contacts in the bulb housing on the OBC, metal's now nice and shiny, still no light.

    Hmph.

    Thanks in advance.

    Bah, new bulbs fixed it. Y'all were right to ignore this. :P

    Hope you got the right ones. There's quite a history with that part.
