Squarebody AC control, is it backlit?

Not sure if I have a stock or aftermarket AC control but it's not backlit at night with the lights on. Are these supposed to be backlit? I assume so as I can't see anything, but I'd rather ask here first before pulling the dash out to check the wiring or bulbs.

1984 C10 Silverado

Thanks in advance.

Rob

My 75 control's are back lit. Some of them are back lit via a fiber optic cable ran from the gauge cluster. If a bulb is out in the cluster, replace it first. The cluster bulbs are a simple twist to remove fixture but does require a bit of contortion ability to get your hands back there.

That's excellent advice! Is there a better bulb to replace them with? My dash is pretty dim. Thanks for the help!
