Question about 2003 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

My lights on the shift changer console blinks off and on, if I tap it then it will come on so how to I replace the bulb or tighten what is there on my 2003 Highlander?

All other lights are working fine, the light on the dash that shows the shifter is fine, but the console light will go off sometimes and if I tap it, then it will come on, like there is a loose bulb or something. Should I attempt to fix this myselft or take it to the shop?

The problem is probably a blown fuse. Check the owner's manual for location of the fuse panel, find the fuse marked instrument panel (or similar), and put in a new fuse. If the new fuse blows, there is a short which will have to be located and repaired.

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: 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.

I have an automatic gear shift console light bulb that needs replacement. It's a 1998 Toyota Corolla. I already removed the two side screws and two compartment bolts to get the two console pieces apart....


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.

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.

Shift light replacement


First, the bulb is a GE 158.
There are two screws near the back of the parking brake cover (one each side). Move the seats forward to remove them.
After removing the parking brake cover (helps to raise the parking brake), there are two screws at the back of the shift console.
Remove those two screws. Pull out the four 'serrated' push pins under the dash area holding the shift console (two each side). Then pull the cup holder up and out.
You should then be able to remove the shift console. One suggestion- if you need to move the shifter out of park, make sure your parking brake is on! There is a shift release you can depress with a small screwdriver under the little button/tab to the right of the shifter. (Can also be reached under the console with your finger after removing the cupholder.)
The bulb holder is on the driver's side. Only one I assume.
Good Luck,
Robert
