HOW DO I REPLACE INTERIOR READING LIGHTS AND CONTROL BUTTON LIGHTS

2001 Chevrolet Venture • 94,000 miles

The overhead reading lights for the middle row no longer work.
The overhead reading lights for the driver and passenger no longer work and it is definitely not the bulbs because the switch built into the lenses have lost their spring and just flop around.
Many of the button lights on the central control console are burned out.

Have you checked the fuses yet?Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

Take the push type light switches down to the point where you can get to the wires to check them for power. If power is there, then you'll have to replace the switches, since they are broken. From there you can further diagnose the problem if needed. (It may just happen to fix the problem once the switches are replaced)

Also lets not forget there is a ground to the circuit and I would check for power and ground to the light fixture. Sounds. Like a switch issue though from the lack of spring in the switch.
