Default Blue Lights and a Shop Manual

Greetings All. Just wondering if anyone has a clue as to how to change the interior lights from green to blue on a 2012 Ram 1500. I'm talking about lights such as the heater controls, windows, overhead console, etc.. I was told that it was believed that they all work by fiber optics, and if I find where it begins, (Somewhere behind the dash), that all I'd have to do is change the one bulb to the blue one, and the'd all light up in blue.? Sounds too easy to be true.
Also, has anyone been able to find a Shop Manual? If I had one of them, I'd be able to figure the light deal out. Thanks a lot for your time and help, and it's a real pleasure to be a part of this forum. Have Fun!

they have to be de-soldered and resoldered with lights of choice. there is a member on here that has done it.

I don't know how different the interiors are between the '09s and '12s.

The last vehicle I worked on like this was a '76 Fiat X-19.
