Question about 2002 Honda Civic
On the console between the front seats is the gear selector. This is an automatic. The shift indicator light is not working. I'd like to replace it myself if possible. Does anybody know how to access it and what type of bulb it takes? Thanks
First you need to pull off the dashboard (plastic around it). This is held on by tabs and bolts underneath. Take this off and then you should have access to the bolts holding the speedometer assembly. Take these out. Then you should be able to pull the assembly out and have access on the back side to open it up and gain access to the light. I don't know which bulb it takes for sure but your dealer or an auto parts store will have a replacement.
If you have any questions of what I posted please let me know and I will answer them as soon as I can

Tips for a great answer:
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM. The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to automatic transmission shift lock control switch. Voltage flows through the normally closed contacts of the automatic transmission shift lock control switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid causing the transmission shift lever to be physically locked in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is pressed the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, de-energizing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. This allows the shift lever to be move out of the PARK position.
The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position (PNP) and backup lamp switch assembly, which is externally mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch contains four internal switches that indicate the transmission gear range selector lever position. The PCM supplies ignition voltage to each switch circuit. As the gear range selector lever is moved, the state of each switch may change, causing the circuit to open or close. An open circuit or switch indicates a high voltage signal. A closed circuit or switch indicates a low voltage signal. The PCM detects the selected gear range by deciphering the combination of the voltage signals. The PCM compares the actual voltage combination of the switch signals to a TR switch combination chart stored in memory.
You need a Tech2 scan tool to diagnose this problem ! possible range sensor !
