Is the dimmer switch turned all the way up?
Is the power window light on the passenger side working?

All the internal lights are in parallel after the dimmer, so if the passenger side is working there is not much left but wiring or the bulb.
You said that you changed the bulb so that just leaves wiring... however, are you sure the bulb is good?

Yeah, LED's can only go in one way, but since you tried the stock light and it still doesn't work, then all that's left is wiring.
I would start by metering the contacts at the window switch, check for voltage on one side and a good ground on the other, then work your way back.

seems like they were 3, 4, and 5mm bulbs, and the 3 was what was in the hvac. i know there is a thread about this, and it was old, they had all the sizes of the bulbs in it, i'll try to stumble upon it and shoot you a link

The bottom is from the hvac there is 6 of those bulbs and 2 other kind with some black rubber thing on them, and i just have it compared to the dome light haha, i think it is a t3 but i got mine from superbrightleds.com but the t3 come with a plastic screw on thing on the bottom for like locks and stuff idk if i can find just a blue t3 bulb with out that plastic part.
