I have a somewhat strange issue going on with my map light. The button for the maplight appears to be stuck. I almost never use them but I noticed today that the button is semi-engaged and it doesn't move at all. I just moving it a little to see if it would snap back into place but it's pretty stuck up there.

Has this ever happened to anyone?!

Might have to pull out the console and push it out from the back manually and see if the mechanism has something interfering with it or something is misaligned/broken.

Yikes... I don't even know where to begin with pulling out the console.
Do not pull out the whole console it is bitch to reinstall. Remove the lens that covers the bulbs, look carefully and you will see two tabs in each light, push those tabs in one at a time and pull the corner of the maplight down. After you do all four corners the maplight will be free of the housing. To reinstall just snap the maplight back into place.

Pat.
