    no work has been done. But both front light went out within a week of one another. I bought 2 new bulbs and replaced them together. And now the indicator light won't go off and when I put the high beams on the dim lower than the actually head lights. I'll take any help you can give!! Thanks!

    The bulbs are the ones pepboys told me were right- #9004. I will check them to see if they are in right again. I'll let you know, and thanks!

    They were the wrong bulbs :( Cost me $100, not happy because I didn't look them up myself I was sold them by a store rep.

    I think u have the bulbs in wrong or they are not the right part number, it is feeding back, that is the only thing that can cause this problem, and replacing the bulbs is a something being done, u said nothing was done then say the bulbs were replaced, or did I get this wrong??

Do you have the right light bulb? i own a 98 sentre and
it takes a 9004 bulb, but walmarts computer said to use 9007. That made the high beam censor stay on till i replaced it. if you look at the bulb you can tell if it is a dual or single beam bulb.!!!!

How to replace the console light in a 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE?


Remove cover for storage bin under stereo. One hand on each side and pull towards trunk. Remove cup holder, pull up to remove shifter cover. The light is located under the shift indicator on the left. The black component will pull up but wire for light is short so use caution and try to remove light socket with out fully removing indicator. Light bulb is a #194 or peanut bulb. Pull bulb to remove. Reverse to reinstall.

Turn on the hazard switch to check if the bulbs light up. If they do, the problem is probably with the headlight switch itself.
