Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla CE

Open Question

I need to replace the light bulb under the automatic gear shifter in my 2005 Corolla.

The lights on the rest of the dash are working so I've ruled out a fuse issue. I've popped off a small cover at the top of the gear shift console and there is what looks and acts like a release button there. I'm too unsure to go further. Don't want to mess anything up. The dealer wants over $100. Labor to change the bulb. Historically I've changed other bulbs, no problem.

SOURCE: Corolla: How do I replace the bulb under the gear shift console?

It's most likely the 12v 1.7w bulb located underneath the "prnd21" To get there: remove the the console piece just surrounding the black shift area piece- there are six tabs to undo, using a thin screwdriver(a piece of tape may help to not scratch the area) carefully pry and lift out that piece. Now, you'll see 4 clips(2 on left, 2 on right) on the black plastic shift piece, carefully unsnap these and lift up this piece. The bulb slides in and out, it DOES NOT twist. I used a needle nose pliers and a piece of one of those "jar openers" you get from real estate people(advertising..) There's not much room to get in there and get a grip on the bulb, but you can do it.

SOURCE: light bulb is burned out on gear shift console.

The center console needs to be removed, pull the shift plate plastic cover off, remove two bolts inside the console storage box, remove the phillips screws that are visible, the front center storage box also has to be removed, the bulb is located on the left side of the shifter from underneath.

Hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

SOURCE: replace bulb on automatic gear shift console

If the shift console is on floor then look for bolts holding it down.  Take out bolts and then you can maneuver console so you can see where light is plugged in and get the right light to replace it.  It will probably be a small light which tend to cost a bit more, but at least you'll have the light back.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

No light on the shifter can't see at night if itsin drive on a 2005 toyota corolla i need instruction how to get to the bulb


remove the center console and you will see the bulb under the shift panel. To remove the console you need to open the lid and remove the pad on the bottom,remove two screw on the inside,remove four screw on the side and top of the console,pull parking brake and slide the console up and back. Some console have electrical plugs!! Disconnect the plugs before removing all the way. On the left side of the shifter is small black socket, turn left and pull down to remove. Replace the bulb and install in reverse order
Good Luck

Coul not get shifter to do anything, Just stuck in park There was a littl button on top of shifter, tow truck driver popped it off, stuck a screwdriver in it, and I was able to get it out of park,,,is...


for the lights check the fuses under the dash and under the hood.it is unlikely more then one light would blow at the same time.the shifter should come out of gear when you press the brake.there is a switch that unlocks the shifter when the brake it pressed.switch may be bad.dash lights could also be a bad ignition switch.

Used toyota corolla 96' gear shifter light


There is a bulb under the shifter. It is probably burned out.

You need to purchase a number 194 bulb at an auto parts store. Next, you need to remove the entire center console to gain access to the socket that holds the bulb. This is fairly easy. After the console is removed, look under the shifter assembly to locate the socket.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.

Please respond if you have any further questions.
