Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
First
make sure the fuse is good.
If the fuse is good then remove the screws holding the center console cover. You will need a long and short phillip screwdriver. Look for screws in the cup holder, under the handbrake handle and where the console runs under the dash. You may have to move seats forward/backward to reach the screws. When you attempt to raise the console cover you will notice you overlook a screws. Remove them also. You may be able to reach the bulb without removing the gear shift handle. DO NOT TOUCH any other electronics you see. The AIRBAG ACTUATOR is located here also. Replace bulb. Test before reassembly. Good Saturday morning project.

SOURCE: replacing gear shifter light bulb

As a warning, this is a little difficult and requires some patience. I just had to do with to my 2000 accord, and I'm betting the process is very similar for your '98 model. Before starting, you're going to want to get a Phillips head screw driver and a pair of pointy needle-nose pliers. The first thing you'll want to pop off it the driver's side fuse box cover. Under that you should see two screws towards the bottom that hold on the plastic trim that covers the underside of the steering column. This was held along the top with a few pins that should pop lose with a little effort (not too much force though!). There is one screw holding this piece in on the other side (holding it into the center console) but you wouldn’t need to remove this, you just need to get behind this piece of trim. Behind it, you should see two screws holding in the piece of trim that covers the side of the shifter. Take those out and it'll give you the little bit of wiggle room you're going to need. Lastly, pop off the black trim around the shifter. All you'll need to do is put something flat under it and gently pull up, working your way around it. This should pull off relatively easily. You should see the two wires leading to the bulb that will be located right in the middle on the driver's side. What you'll need to do is wiggle you're hand up under the side of the plastic side trim and grab the bulb. It will take a quarter turn to loosen it. Put the new bulb you have in the socket, wiggle it back in its proper place (don't forget to give it a quarter turn again to lock it in) and you should be set. Make sure you test the bulb before putting everything back together! I’m sure something doesn’t make complete sense in here, so if you need any clarification on anything in here, let me know!

SOURCE: How do I change brake light bulb of Nissan Sentra 2008

Was able to complete this job successfully:
It's a little tricky to do without pictures, but I don't have any available right now.

  1. Access the trunk
  2. Remove the material covering the light. You'll need to remove the black pegs by lifting the centre part. A flathead screw-driver will help. There are 2 to remove -- one directly behind the brake light and another at the top of the trunk.
  3. Pull back the material to expose the brake light wiring and the metal frame of the car.
  4. There are 2 nuts / screws to remove near the entrance of the trunk. Both are about 4 inches apart and hold the tail light's cover in place. Remove both.
  5. Using a bit of force, you will be able to pull off the entire tail light from the frame of the car. This is done on the exterior of the car.
  6. Rotate the problematic light from it's housing (it should come off with ease) and pull it out of the socket. Brake light and indicator are a 3057K bulb.

The light that lights up the shifting console is out. Is this a bulb or fuse? How can I get it working so that I see my gears at night?


if the otjer dash lights work then it is a bulb gone out. if none of the dash lights work you have a bad fuse or possibly a bad dimmer wheel. to replace the bulb you will need to remove the plastic shroud from around the shifter.

Hello if you fell your clutch is going out that is probably why fith gear is not working. Clutch can be fixed at your local mechanic if it is the clutch transmission would not need any attention as being replaced.

1998 sentra gxe has a light out where the shifter reads reverse, drive, ect. Is this a fuse?


no, most likely cause is a 194 series bulb, that is under the "shifter indicator". that is what that piece is called. very small bulb that is just under the indicator is burned out. you need to somewhat take the indicator apart to replace. not for a novice or omeone that doesnt work on cars.

The letters on my shift selector of my Nissan Do not light up.


Likely its the bulb that illuminates the shift selector, There not to hard to replace, it will actually prove to be more of a challenge trying to find the bulb anywhere other then the dealership where you will pay around $150 for a $10 bulb. as for actually replacing it, its not to difficult if you can find the screws that mount the plate that has the letters around your shifter, once you find those, just pull the bulb out, and replace it with a new one. Be sure to disconnect the battery before doing this though, so you dont cause a short. If you cant figure it out, its probably best to seek help from a mechanic or someone that is familiar with it.
