Shift indicator light not working

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

    I am not referring to the light on the dashboard but the one on the floor console. Please read my post before responding. 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

good luck.

    Well the plastic around the shifter should also be held on with tabs, I was thinking that you also had a shifter light on the dashboard. You should be able to just pry it off and up. There shouldn't be any bolts for it. Once you get that off, then you should have some bolts to take off to access the light but it should be simple enough to take apart from there, if not let me know and I will have you send some pictures to give you a better description of what to do.

How to change light bulb on console gear shift indicator. Wife can't tell what gear she is in after dark. Automatic trans. 2004 PT-Cruiser


I have 2002 Cruiser, not sure if it's the same configuration. Here's what I did:
Remove the Console: Slide front seats all the way back and recline them all the way to get the armrests out of the way. Pull the emergency brake ALL the way up. Set the gear shift in neutral. Remove the 4 screws in the cup holders front and rear. Remove the rear window controller (pry out gently), then squeeze the tab and pull out each of the 2 connectors. I also have a 12v socket at the front of the console - squeeze the blue tab and pull gently. The console should be free and should lift straight up with a little coaxing.
Remove the Gear Shift indicator assembly: You MIGHT be able to remove the light bulb without doing this, but I couldn't. With a T10 torx screwdriver, remove the 4 screws in each corner. Lift the assembly up as far as practical (a couple inches). The bulb socket under the PRND21 indicator has 2 very small tabs on each side that no normal-sized human being can squeeze together - I pried the bulb socket out of the white 'shroud' with a screwdriver at each tab location (2).
Pull on the black socket. The socket rotates freely and is NOT the normal "turn a quarter turn and it's out" type socket. (That'd be too easy!) The bulb is a standard interior auto bulb. Replace it and reverse the procedure to reinstall. About 30 minutes for this job.

Neutral safty switch


Back-Up Light Switch/Neutral Safety SwitchREMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figure 1)

On automatic vehicles, functions of both the reverse lamps and the neutral safety switch are controlled by the shift position switch at the base of the shift selector. This multi-circuit switch also sends signals to the various electronic control units (cruise control, automatic transaxle ECU, etc.), keeping them advised of the selected gear.

5d7324d.jpg

Fig. 1: Reverse lamp and neutral safety switch functions are both controlled by a shift position switch at the base of the shift selector

To replace the shift position switch, firmly set the parking brake and block the wheels. Place the shift selector in N. Remove the console. The switch is located on the side of the shift selector, held by 2 bolts or nuts. Unplug the wiring connectors, then remove the switch.

When installing the switch, make sure the switch slider is positioned to align with the shifter arm or tab. Install the switch, tighten the retaining nuts or bolts and connect the wiring. Reinstall the console.

After installing the switch, check that the engine starts only in P or N; the starter should not engage with the shifter in any other position. Check also that the back-up lights come on when the selector is placed in R.

Hope this helps (remember comment and rated this).

My 1999 Pontiac Sunfire GT 2.4L Automatic Gear Selector is broken


you car likely thinks its stuck in reverse, which it may be... even if you can roll it. you'll need to find a way to either get it into park or neutral, normally this can be done by the actual linkages under the shift console or from underneath the car.

Are shift settings supposed to light up? Is it a


Yes, they are supposed to light up. I believe that's on the same fuse as the instrument cluster, so if that lights up don't worry about the fuse. It's probably just a burnt out bulb. To replace, remove the knob - 2 screws, one in the front one on the rh side lift up, use thread lock to install, remove the floor console - seats forward remove one screw each side in the back, pull up to remove the parking brake console, seats rearward remove 2 screws from shift console, 2 pushpins each side, remove cupholders, lift and remove console. four screws to remove dial bezel then you'll see the connector for the lamp (the parking brake handle and gear selector will have to be moved to different positions to move console)

2005 Mustang Automatic Shifter


The solution is that you must purchase the complete shift housing because it is all one piece and you can't just replace part of it.The dealer told me this is about $250.00 U.S. and it can be replaced by an intermediate skilled tinkerer. For right now I just live with the inconvenience as I can pretty much guess what gear Im in.
