    Are they the light up crests or a thin vertical lamp? If it is the crest it is powered by an electroluminescent paper that cannot be replaced, you must buy a whole new light assembly. If it is a tall thin strip it may be an aftermarket thing with a bulb. However, if it is a factory thing it one again has the electroluminescent paper and must be completely replaced. Post a picture of it.

    My mom's 90 Coupe Devile has the same problem, when I replaced her headliner and took out the sides in the rear I noticed how they were wired in. I was going to try and take those out and drill in and wire some opera lamps from maybe a 1977-1985 Deville/Brougham Coupe or such were you can actually replace the bulb and it would look cool and be unique I guess, thats maybe if you have the tall thin strip lights which are impossible to find these days.

    You can buy after market ones that are meant for Limousines online, you just have to search for them. They will not look as good as the originals though because they do not use the same technology, so they will not have that nice, soft light they are famous for. I was lucky enough to find some new ones and this is how they look at night.
