You just have to look carefully for all the phillips-head screws. Probably 2 in the rear, a couple inside the console (take all 'yer stuff out) and maybe 2 in the adventerous!!!!!

all you have to do is pop the little square piece around the gear shift lever up and there is a wire with a tiny bulb on it. It is a pain in the butt to get all the pieces back in place and put the square piece back down. i have had to replace mine like every 6 months. be careful not to use too much force because you can break the clips that secure it in place and that will look worse than your bulb not working

I have a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid and the light that illuminates the gear identification (letter/numbers) under the center stick shift console is not functioning. How do I replace that bulb?

Welcome to Fixya

Carefully remove the gearshift trim with a tool (screwdriver covered with tape to prevent scratching). With the trim removed (first picture) you can now see the wires to the light bulb socket. To access the socket, lift up the top of the console by inserting the screwdriver and prying. Pry at the four tabs. Note the back of the console top can be left in place. Here's the link with pictures for better understanding.
Thank you for using Fixya!

On a 2005 Honda Civic I need to know how to remove the center console cover to replace a burned out bulb for the gear shift.

Detach the clips (A, B) by pulling the center console box (C) up, and removing it from the center console (D).


  1. Remove the screws (A, B) and clips (C), and remove the center console (D).

  2. Install the console in the reverse order of removal, and note these items

How to remove the center console cover on a 2005 Honda Civic to replace the burned out bulb for the shift indicator light to work.

I don't have the answer for you but you can search the web for information about adjusting the parking brake as that also requires removing the center console. I'm under the impression that interior trim removal type tools may be helpful so as to not ding things up.

Shift indicator light not working at night, 2002 civic ex

Remove the center console covering around the gearshift, you'll find a very small bulb there, it's very common for them to burnout, change it and you'll be fine.

The light near my automatic gear shift won't light up, with or without the headlights on. The light for my cruise control buttons won't light up either...??

I successfully did this on my 2001 Honda Civic.

You have to remove the entire center console to get to the light. I recommend actually having the replacement bulb prior to starting. I used a Sylvania 74 that I picked up at the local auto parts store. They are tiny bulbs. About $3.

Here is a diagram I found that was very helpful in removing the center console:


In A above, you have to work out the middle portion of the console by pulling up on it. There are tabs that hold it in place on either side of it but you can't get to them. By using my fingers and grabbing the inside of the main dish, I applied upward pressure and it came out. It did not break in the process, but I can't guarantee the result will be the same for you.

In picture B you will see that there are two screws hidden underneath the part you just removed. You need to remove those two screws plus the two tabs shown in front and the two screws located in the rear close to the floor.

You will need to put the shift into neutral or farther back to then lift out the entire console.

Once the console is removed you will see a wire going into the right side just underneath the gear shift. If you look into where it's going, you will see the back side of a small round socket. Rotate the socket about 90 degrees and it should come out. Voila! The bulb.

Simply pull the bulb out and push in a new one. Turn on the headlights to test. The bulb should be nicely lit.

Now push the socket back into where it came from and rotate back 90 degrees to lock it in place. If you reverse the rest of the instructions, putting the console back together will just take a minute or two.

Finally, write an email to Honda and tell them what you think about how easy it is to replace this lamp.
