Heater control panel and gear shifter lights out

The lights that light up the heater controls and the letters next to the gear shifter do not light up anymore - the lights for the main dash(speedometer etc,) still work. Is it just a fuse or a wireing problem

Which fuse to change for steering wheel lights and gear shifter lights 2010 ford edge

It's not a fuse , the SJB - smart junction box controls these lights ! This is fords body control module . If the Heater / A/C control panel ,hazard switch ,headlamp switch , message center switch all work, it is not a fuse . The gear shifter I would say the bulb is burnt out . The steering wheel lights could be out because of an open in the clock spring . The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works

How can I disable the hard limp mode on a 1998 mercedes e'320, drinks spilled on center consoul, next day stuck in second gear a Shifter control was taken apart & cleaned. Still no gear lights up

The shift console has nothing to do with the emissions limp mode.
There is a solenoid to disable the shifter from being able to be moved out of park, but that is in order to ensure you press down on the brake. Don't know what could be wrong except that you might have blown a fuse that powers the transmission.

2002 Nissan maxima stuck in 3rd gear, auto tranny . I was driving the other day to realize the light on the dash said I was in 3rd instead of drive, but my gear shifter was in the drive position ....

Most modern day autos are all electronically controlled, Usually if it detects a fault it can go into limp mode which by default is 3rd gear. The fact your speedo is not working which too is most likely sensor driven then that may be a clue to what is wrong. No speed sensor, no speedo and the transmission control unit is not getting the vehicle speed sense either. So it has no way of knowing what gear to be in or any shift points. I'm thinking it's a sensor issue would be my best guess.

My 1998 Tauris won'y shift into gear, the button on the shift can not be depressed and therefore the shift won,t move.

Make sure your brake lights work, if they do then the problem is the solenoid which controls the locking of the shifter mechanism and is located under a panel somewhere around the base of the shifter shaft...... if your brake lights don't work, you probably need to replace their fuse which shoulod fix the problem.

What does it mean when a green light comes on in the dash with the letter "S"?

This means your car has a built in "sports" shifter, which allows you to control the gears your car runs in manually, between D3 and D4 while its moving, its essentially an "overdrive" button. and if you read my posts, you'll discover that his light will soon become a huge pain.....

Check instrument panel fuse first. It would be labled on the fuse door or in manual. If not blown i would suspect the dimmer switch. There are to many bulbs in a instrument panel for them all to blow at one time.
