You are correct, there is a bulb light lights only the center console...you will need to pull up on the shifter in order to gain access to the bulb...you don't always have to remove the shift knob to gain access to the bulb holder...if you need to remove the knob...pull the shift lever all the way down to low gear...this should best expose the rear of the knob...you should see a u clip that needs to be removed...(needle nose pliers) in order to lift the knob off...to reinstall just put the knob back in place...the u clip must be re-installed to hold the knob on...Hope this helps.
You hve 2 components to look at,one is in the brake pedal,is the switch for the stoping lihts and the other is in the shift knob,got to take some part off from the center console,you are going to find a coil shift lock,see if the brake pedal is sending the signal to the coil to unlock the shift knob,look for blown fuses.
slide the lower part of shifter handle down and you will find two screws, but there is 2 wires coming in from center console for overdrive button.you have to remove the center console cover and remove the 2 wires from connector and then pull up threw handle.when you go back together you will have to guide them back threw the handle.
