Well when I was changing the light bulb shit flew everywhere are the springs contacts and connectors available? The part that sandwitches together lost all of the plastic nubs also as they broke off.

you're talking about #11 - #16 right?

those parts are all sold separately ...

I am pretty sure it is #12 and #15

There is a spring a brass piece and two plastic gear pieces that acts like a pen when you push the button, These go between the two parts 12 and 15.

12 has the wire with the end that also broke, it fits together with another piece that has female holes.

So basically #12, #15, and the spring, plastic gears is what I am looking for.

where can I get a digital copy of the pictures you have posted with the breakdown of parts for the full car?

OK, so #12 is the switch and #15 is the button... the button is color coded to your interior so your VIN would be the best thing to use to make sure we get the right color

the buttons range in price depending on the color, but you're in the $40 area (for both parts) at the discount

Do they come with the spring and little plastic gears? Im not worried about the button color because I just need the spring and plastic gear things if they come with them, do they come with them?

I really don't know - you're seeing just about everything I'm seeing besides the full descriptions (which aren't much more than 'pushbutton' and 'switch') and the prices

i would guess that the switch has the spring part and the button just pops on to it (or maybe pops into the bezel) and just presses down on the switch

-----

and to answer your question about the online catalogs there's a couple different places you can go

gmpartsgiant.com has a decent catalog but you have to sign up to get the full part numbers
compnine.com has a good catalog (and easy links for posting the pictures here) but often will not have any part numbers and i think 2008 is the newest year they have

another good online catalog is the acdelco parts catalog at http://parts-catalog.acdelco.com

there are other places too i'm sure but i tend to not use them since i've got the full gm catalog at my disposal

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I am looking for the same parts as the OP which would be items #12 and #15. My car is a 2001 Cadillac Deville DTS and the interior color is black. Do you have these parts in stock?

i don't show a button with black/ebony color to it ... can I get your VIN? that will sort out the color issue and make sure there aren't any other mistakes

Thank you for checking. I'm not sure if the button has the spring mechanism attached to the back of it, because the diagram is showing #12 as the electrical switch that the spring mounts into.

If that is all that #12 has, then the button would have the spring mechanism. Also, I won't need a color matching button since I have that already. I'm currently missing the internal spring mechanism which I can remove from whatever button you can get.

Do you have any button in stock? If you do, that would be the only way to determine if the the spring comes with it.

Ok if you send me a reminder on Thursday I'll check if the spring comes w the button. I think it does.

Can you check if there is a white plastic piece connected to the back of the button with a spring? Thank you.

i'm having a hard time getting a picture of one

if you want i can get you the full list of dealers that have one of these buttons in stock and ask if they'll take a picture of it and send it to you
or you can get them to describe it over the phone \
(there's really not that many left after the ones i've already tried)

After looking at the diagram closely and checking my other map light, the spring mechanism is a part of the switch and not the button. Therefore, I'll be needing only #12. How do I go about ordering this part from you?

Chris I received the map light switch today, and it works great after a cumbersome install. Since the other side switch is missing a spring, I will need to order another map light switch. I'll give you a call first thing in the morning your time (at around 7AM).

I called at about 7:20AM your time because the Rippy Cadillac website said that the parts dept. hours were Monday-Friday 7:00AM-6:00PM, but the lady who answered the phone said the parts dept. doesn't open till 8AM. Anyways, I'll need to order one Reading Lamp Switch part #25641588. I believe the switch is interchangeable for either left or right side, but I'll give you a call later in the day to place the order.

our website has always had bad info of some sort ... i've told them about that many times but nothing seems to get done

those hours are for service ... we are open 8-5:30 and 8-2 on saturdays

and yes, the switch is interchangeable between sides ... talk to you soon
