Lighting around the shift console

I did't really pay much attention to it but my wife said there was a light on the shift selector that told you what gear you you're in. I was just wondering if there was so I can fix it so she will leave me alone about it.

How do i fix a running light warning that has appeared on my dashboard?

You find the bulb that is not alight and replace it Claire. Best way is to check it at night with a second person or park in front of shop windows. Check front sidelights, daytime running lights, repeaters, headlights main and dipped, indicators left and right. Then turn the car around and check rear lights, left and right indicator and brake lights. Also pay attention to the high level brake light in the back window. I had that out for 6 months and it drove me mad trying to find out why my warning light was on. I checked all the lights three times with my late wife in the bedroom window and both of us in contact on home phone to cell phone. When I found out the reason, alerted by a friend, I so wanted my wife to know the reason why, but she had died 3 months previously.

Is there a lighting on my gear shift control at night time

There should be lighting. It is usually supplied by a LED or small green globe under the center console next to the gearshift mechanism. I'm not famliar with how to remove the console in your year model, but if it proves difficult, any panel shop or auto lectrician should be able to show you how for a small cost. You can then replace it yourself if desired.

2004 f 150 reverse lights don't come one

First of all, go to the central junction box (CJB) and check 10A fuse 14 which feeds power to the DTR sensor. Next, check 20A fuse 10 which feeeds power to the reverse relay. Check the reversing lamps for burnout. Start the engine and place the selector in R and check the reversing lamps. If they do not turn on, either the DTR or the reversing relay is defective

Have no reverse but other gears working

I never actually did any auto trans repair when I was a dealer tech,but I do believe you're looking at a broken reverse sprag(this is probably gonna require a removal and disassemble of trans)I will admit<Aamco did a pretty good job on my 98 Voyager(I didn't have a lift in my home shop at the time,plus I figured out renting another car for my wife to drive would have made my costs about the same).The quickest solution for the average do it yourselfer is probably a Jasper rebuilt unit.(The special tools aint worth buying unless you plan to do a LOT of transmission rebuilds)

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.


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).

Why my chrysler sebring won't shift out of park

If your brake lights work, then the problem is in your shifter assembly. Don't make the costly mistake of paying 342 dollars for a new shift assembly.  Go to Lowe's and buy a variety spring pack for $3.97.  You will need to use the longest spring in the box for the fix.  You will need a needle nose pliers and a flathead screwdriver.  Using the screwdriver, remove the the chrome ring around the shifter assembly.  This will give you a half inch space in diameter of the assembly to work with.  Now you will need to use the needle nose to slightly make a hook out of the spring ends.  Attach one end of the spring to the thin key lock wire on the left of the assembly.  You will use the needle nose to guide one end of the spring down there and attach it gently to where the wire meets the pink plastic lever.  Now carefully guide the other end underneath the black LED power lines and bring it towards the bottom part of the assembly.  Attach the spring to any hole you find where the spring can sit underneath and out of the way from the chrome ring you will ultimately put back on last.  

The problem is the pink lever doesn't move back when the driver pushes the gear selector from park all the way to the right.  The pushing pin is a peice of plastic with the frailty of a toothpick.  Over time, this plastic breaks off and leaves the driver stuck in park.  To test if this is your problem do the following:  with your right hand move the gear selector from park, all the way to the right side and at the same time with your left hand and a flathead screwdriver, gently push the pink plastic lever down..then try moving the gear selector to reverse or drive.  If this works, then the spring solution I just described will save you literally hundreds of dollars in costly repairs.

The letters on my shift selector of my Nissan Do not light up.

Likely its the bulb that illuminates the shift selector, There not to hard to replace, it will actually prove to be more of a challenge trying to find the bulb anywhere other then the dealership where you will pay around $150 for a $10 bulb. as for actually replacing it, its not to difficult if you can find the screws that mount the plate that has the letters around your shifter, once you find those, just pull the bulb out, and replace it with a new one. Be sure to disconnect the battery before doing this though, so you dont cause a short. If you cant figure it out, its probably best to seek help from a mechanic or someone that is familiar with it.

Bmw 1998 fuse box diagram to find wnrhat fuse controls the park light on the gear shift consol model 528 i. the light is staying on and i think it draining the battery

Unfortunately, if you find the correct fuse and remove it, you will turn off that light - and a number of others that you likely do not want turned off. This bulb is likely part of the dash display lighting system.

I would think it would be best to try to get into the console and remove that bulb if you don't wish to have someone try to trouble shoot the circuit and find out what is wrong.

On most cars, the dash lighting is controlled by a fuse in the inside fuse box, likely somewhere around the steering wheel.

2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd

I questioned the dealer about my 2005 because mine was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.
