SOURCE: stick auxiliary box lid

This is a known failure item. Take it to a dealer & have them replace it under warranty. I personally have changed 20 or so. The replacement boxes seem to have been upgraded, and do not display this issue any longer.

SOURCE: I have an automatic gear shift console light bulb

That is a very tough bulb to replace. Once you get the center console pieces out of the way there should be a couple of screws or blots that hold down the trim around the gear shift. Remove those and lift gentley. You will barley be able to access the bulb. but it can be done.

Half my dashboard is not working


Center console or drivers. It\'s most like driver and you simply have a burned out light. However replacing it is a pain in most cars. You usually can not just reach behind like with tail lights but have to remove the whole lower panel. It least it not a Prizm. To change it bulbs you have to remove the glove box console, then the drivers side console just to remove the center console. I gave up and used heavy duty Velcro to hold a cigarette lighter powered LED light above the radio to light up the center console. You might try something similar for you dashboard. Also, just make sure they are not turned down since their brightness is adjustable.

My Camry 99's gear shift indicator light, ciggarette lighter light, Air con's contoller light and ash tray lights are not working after replacing bulbs.


Could be a fuse. Check the interior firewall fuse box under the driver's side dashboard area. That's location of the fuse box. Probably wired in series....maybe wrong bulb replaced.

Need diagram for replacing heater core



    Detach the heater core hoses at the firewall. The two black hoses attach near the firewall on the passenger's side of the engine compartment. Squeeze the hose clamps on the end of the hoses with pliers and slide the hoses from the heater core tubes.

    • 4Remove the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panels. The two panels are held in with push-pins. Raise the center of the push-pins with a small, standard screwdriver and pull the pins from the panels. Pull the panels away from the dashboard to separate them from the dashboard.
    • 5Remove the center console. Separate the gear select trim piece from the center console, using a small standard screwdriver to pry the trim piece from the center console. Lift it over the shift knob and rotate it to clear the knob. Remove the retaining screws holding the center console in place with a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the console up over the shift knob and remove it from the interior.
    • 6Remove the glove box. Open the door to the glove box. Squeeze the two retaining tabs on the ends of the glove box and pull the glove box away from the dashboard. Remove it from the interior.
    • 7Detach the drain tube from the heater core cover, which is located behind the glove box. The tube can be pulled from the heater core cover by hand. Detach the air intake duct from the bottom of the heater core cover. The air intake duct runs from the bottom of the cover to the center of the dashboard. Remove the duct by hand.
    • 8Remove the retaining screws on the black heater core cover with a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the cover from the heater core and remove it from the interior. Remove the heater core clamp screw with a Phillips screwdriver, pull the clamp away from the heater core, then pull the heater core from the housing.
    • 9Place the replacement heater core against the housing. Place the clamp over the heater core and install the clamp retaining screw with a Phillips screwdriver. Position the heater core cover over the heater core and install the retaining screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 10Attach the drain tube and the air intake duct to the heater core cover.
    • 11Install the glove box. Squeeze the retaining tabs on the sides of the glove box and push it into position against the dashboard. Release the tabs when the glove box is in position.
    • 12Install the center console. Guide the console over the shift knob and install the retaining screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Slip the shift selector trim piece over the shift knob and push it into the center console.
    • 13Place the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panel in position. Install the push-pins into the retaining holes, pushing the in center of the pin to engage the pins.
    • 14Fill the radiator with coolant. Most climates require a 50/50 mix of DEXCOOL coolant and water. 2.2L engines require 8.6 qts., 2.4L

I own a 95 Toyota Corolla console light bulb replacement


OK, I just did the job-Replaced the burnt out light bulb in the center console for the shift indicator on a 95 Corolla. Took about two hours of which 11/2 hrs was wasted time. Once you pry off the cover, which is best done with a screw driver front the front as the back is the semi-spring loaded clasps, you will see the shift indicator box. Look around the edges, just below the top and you will see four tabs. If you push or manipulate the tabs to release the lid you will find the bulb in the indentation on the drivers side. The bulb is in that indentation. It is a pull out push in type bulb (148?). Pull it out; put a new on in and put the parts back together. You may want to test before closing the box but remember the light only comes on when you have you headlights on-Must be in the dashlight system. Took me less than ten minutes to put all the parts back together including the ones throughout the console cover which did not need to come out in the first place.
