You should be able to press and hold in the button on the end of your indicator stalk on each screen you wish to reset.
Concerning the light, does it come on when you manually switch it?
If no then suspect the bulb or a loose connection.
If yes then is the switch set to the middle notch .
It usually has three settings, off- door activation and on.

If you take out the light you'll see two connections.
One on the left has two wires to it and is the feed for permanent power and from the door switches.
I'd suspect the one from the switches is either not connected correctly or the wire is broken/disconnected.
Strange the controls don't reset the screens, don't see why they shouldn't.
