when the lights are turned on and the dash lights activate, should the climate control dials light up. Everything else is lit but the three dials are not. Is that right or do I need to fix. If a fix is needed, any idea's? Thanks for the help.

My 93 525i had the same problem. There is a small lamp (OS12/1.2) behind the controls which is a real bear to get to. I removed the radio in order to release a catch on the left side of the heater control panel. This allows you to pull out that panel from the left side by swinging it out. Then disconnect the 3 color coded control cables and remove any electrical connectors. Once you have the whole assembly out, remove 3 small phillips screws that hold the controls to the front plate. you'll see the lamp in there. Hope this makes sense.
