2003 Galant Shifter Gauge Lights Out

The lights are out where you shift from Park to Drive. Every other light is ON...the dash lights, headlights etc. are on. Only the shifter lights are off. Would this be a fuse and if so what fuse on the fuse diagram would it be...size and color please. Thank you.

Why cant i shift my 03 nissan altama out of park


Check to see if you have brake lights. No lights, replace the brake switch at the pedal. This will fix the park problem. If you have lights, then it could be wiring or a bad solenoid at the shifter.

Gear shift light


there is a bulb underneath the shifter panel-pull up the plastic around the shifter and look for it underneath the shifter- it should be a 168-or 194 bulb- cheers Denny

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

1998 pontiac grand prix dash light go out when car is put in gear


Your shifter is a column shifter, not a floor shifter, right? Is the headlight switch mounted on the steering column? If so, then this "combination switch" may be the problem. If not, start looking for loose wires, especially ground wires, around the steering column area and the headlight switch area.
It would also be a good idea to get access to a wire diagram from a factory repair manual and find out if GM had any Technical Service Bulletins addressing this problem. If I get a chance, I will ask around and see if any of my co-workers ever heard of this problem.

How do i take 2003 highlander out of park when the engine doesn't start?


Hi! If you turn on the ignition and depress the brake pedal, the shifter should move whether the engine is started or not. If it does not release, have someone check to see if the brake lights work. If the brake lights do not work, you will likely not be able to move the shifter. If they do not, check the STOP fuse and see if it is blown. If you have NO power anywhere (no dash lights, etc) you can remove the small cover near the shifter (usually about10mm square) and depress the white button underneath. The shifter should come out of park at that point.

If it only lights up the tail lights when its in RND21 but works correct in park then I believe your looking at a internal shorted brake shift interlock on the shifter back feeding and sending power back to the brake switch and turning the lights on. I would access the shifter assembly and depin the wire I am pointing to and reconnect the connector and see if the brake light issue stops. You will need to manually shift it out of park or temporarily attach this wire to get it out of park for the test.

-my car is 2003chevy monte carlo the daytime running lights no longer light and at night the dash lights no longer light and the radio lights are dim as is the gear shift selector light. can you help Dave


Hi David, Look for grounds, especially the headlight switch it self... Most of the time the issue you describe is resolved by replacing the headlight switch. There is a variable resistor that fails, over time.

If the headlight switch itself is loose, proper grounding would fail, and current runs other places.

Both the radio and the gear shifter are affected by the dimmer and on or off status of the headlight switch.

My 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Gear Shift is stuck.


See if u have brake lights. This is what energizes the shifter solenoid. There are 2 fuses u can check both are in the under dash fuse panel. Fuse 23 (15amp) and fuse 26 (7.5amp).
To get it out of park turn igntion switch on stopping just short of engerizing the electronics then u should be able to get it out of park and into neutral.
