Question about 2003 Toyota 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?
Dear Brendahall,I recommend to ask an expert to do it for you as there is a risk on your attempt to brake or crack the console.

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.

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.

Replace the right rear brake lamp. The bulb possible use two filaments one for brake and tail light. One burnt out filament in one bulb.

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.
