Will not start, shifter indicator no light up


Try to start in neutral. If it starts, replace the neutral safety switch. Under the vehicle, on the drivers side, mounted to the transmission, under the shifter cable. It needs replaced anyway because the same switch gives the signal for the shift indicator.

Light indicator of the shifter not working in the dashboard


there is a 15A fuse supplying the (EFI no.1) circuit which must be burnt because it controls:
  • Transmission Indicator
  • Engine Control
  • Engine Immobilizer System
This has to be your problem, hope this helps

How do I remove the console shifter lever? and how do I replace the shift position indicator bulb? Thanks


Do a Google or Bing Search for "2007 (YEAR) Ford Explorer Shifter Light change" various blogs will come right up BUT the indicator is IN the Dash/Speedometer in the newer models and the shifter isin the Center Council....OR go to almost any of the Auto Parts stores and LOOK at their Haynes Manuals. MOST will change the light bulb for You!

Does it shift correctly?
Indicator on dash or on floor console?

It's just a bulb if it shifts correctly.

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.

Car will start fine, brakes work but once in drive or reverse will not move, think its the transmission. Car has 350k km.


When you move the shifter into the position P,R,N,D does the indicator on the gauge light up. For example in "P" the P indictor light up, "R" the R indicator light up and so on.
If it does then you might have a bad transmission.
If the indicator stay in one position only even when you' move your shifter back and forth. You might have a broken link cable from the shifter to the trans.

1998 sentra gxe has a light out where the shifter reads reverse, drive, ect. Is this a fuse?


no, most likely cause is a 194 series bulb, that is under the "shifter indicator". that is what that piece is called. very small bulb that is just under the indicator is burned out. you need to somewhat take the indicator apart to replace. not for a novice or omeone that doesnt work on cars.
