the other day my sport button stopped working. I checked my fuse for my tranny and it seemed ok. I been searching the forums but haven;t seen any solutions. Anyone have any idea how to pop the button off to look at it? i miss my sport mode. I need it back.

When you hit the sport button - does the sport light go on? Does the button feel like it is working?

Because if it is not the switch/wiring - then it goes to the TCM as fault as all the switch does it tell the module which program to run.

Generally speaking , these buttons and switches can be pried up using a pocket screwdriver.

If in fear, try a little pry tool made of plastic or wood.
Better to break the tool rather than damage/mess up the switch..

No Lighting up

The liight in the instrument cluster doen;t light up, and it doesn;t feel like its kicking in, i was thinking about unpluging my battery to reset the computer in the car see if that helps. Have you pried yours off before?

actually you could try spraying some contact cleaner in there before prying - see if you can loosen anything up - because it sounds like the switch may be the culprit. That would be my first move....then on to prying :cheesy:

CRC has a good electrical contact cleaner that is harmless to plastic (important). As posted by Flashheart, try the spray, then pry ,and use those nylon pieces ,pry a little at a time.

Sometimes there is a little notch for the pry bar (pocket screwdriver) at the item to be lifted..
