The passenger door lock switch lights up but the drivers side does not.
The switch does work but just does not light up. Is this wrong?

The bulb has burned out. Easier to replace the switch than the bulb. They can be had on rockauto.com for about $20.

These are not bulbs, they are LED's.

Is it safe to assume the door opens correctly from the outside when you pull the handle (even when "locked")?

Interesting. Both of the lights stopped working in my sunroof switches. I just replaced the entire console with a replacement from eBay. Are they also LED's? If so, I'm surprised they quit working already.

No, my mistake. I originally read this as meaning the red light on top of the door panel was not working on the drivers side. You're correct, those will be bulbs.

There's a good pair of threads that contain links to each other. Check back a few weeks or use a search.

The door panel has to come off. If you plan to work on these cars yourself, I would highly recommend getting at least the DVD of the factory service manual. I prefer the real paper manuals, myself.

so to change that one bulb for that lock/unlock button you need to take off the door panel and not the handle area were it resides?

Just checked the manual...you are correct. The bezel just pops off. I was thinking about the window switches.
