The gear shift bulb is burnt out. How do I get to the bulb to replace it? Take off the P-R-N-1-2-3 plate or do I need to remove the plastic around the gear shift box?

SOURCE: 2007 pontiac vibe gear shift light replacement.

On the 2004 Pontiac Vibe that I owned, I ended up taking it to the dealer. Perhaps this advice can avoid having you end up at the same place!

Remove the middle environmental control knob (fan blower speed, I think) by tugging on it until it comes off. Underneath you will find a single Phillips screw. Remove the screw and gently (so you don't mar it), pull at the plastic trim surrounding the environmental control area. It should pop out. You may also want to remove the two-prong AC outlet by prying it gently out with a small slotted screwdriver before attempting to pry out the trim panel.

After that panel is out of the way, you are ready to tackle the plastic trim surrounding the shift knob. Begin by removing the small holding compartment at the base of the shift knob. There is a single Philips screw holding the plastic piece to a supporting brace on the lower end. Four additional screws on the upper end are revealed by the removal of the environmental control trim piece as previously described.

Okay, from there, you're ready to gently pry loose the trim panel surrounding the shift knob.

The bulb can be located on the driver's side. It's a 'funny' looking bulb that is integrated into a two wire bundle. You may end up having to replace the bulb+wire bundle as a unit. The electrical connector is on the opposite side of the shift knob.

Good luck!

there should be a cap that you can pop off with a key or small flat screwdriver next to the shift indicator next to the shift lever. lift the cap off and insert your key into the key hole you should be able to shift the lever now if the problem persists take your vibe into the dealer.

This is most likely due to a bad solenoid pack in transmission. You could have tranny serviced and see if it helps. Poor fluid condition makes valves stick in those.

SOURCE: Headlight bulb burnt out. Upon

Welcome to Fixya
This is a common problem with headlight bulb higher than the 60W bulb. You can actually replace the plug with a ceramic type so that it wont melt. This happens to my car. I am using halogen bulb and burned the plastic mold together with the bulb. Replacing the plastic mold with ceramic type mold fixed the problem.
Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: My license plate went out on my 2003 Pontiac Vibe.

A fuse would put the tail lights out as well. Probably a fault in the wiring to the light.

2003 jeep liberty shift lever console light is burnt out? How do I replace and is this a dealer part only?


Usually the small plastic plate with the positions marked on it can be pried out (use a wide blade flat knife etc) there is a light bulb in there. Don't do this if cold, plastic gets brittle and can break.
