Climate control & AC/Rear defrost bulbs

I searched around and found how to replace the bulbs. I know for sure one in the AC went out, but those others I'm checking the fuse when the car's here. I guess it happened the other morning after I put an aftermarket radio in.

1) Would the radio switch be an issue besides the bulbs/fuse? (no shorts or pinched wires, everything soldered with proper dash kit and harness)

2) I gather I'm looking for Neo Wedge bulbs. My guess is it's a T4 for the buttons after watching the youtube; That seem right?

3) How many, and what size/height are the climate control bulbs underneath? (ex. T4 Tall?)

Asking because the cost of replacements when I search Honda parts is quite amazing. Should be able to pick up these type bulbs for a buck or less.

Thanks for any help!

Update: Radio wasn't the issue. Loose plug underneath caused the HVAC to not illuminate.

The buttons for the Rear defrost and AC and T3 neo wedge. AliExpress has a large variety for a few bucks in lots of 10pcs.

Under the climate controls, there's a single phillips head in the middle. Remove the small panel and near the back underneath are 2 or 3 plugs. The leftmost one was loose on mine.
