Remove the shift console trim panel (usually held on by clips), under there you will find 1 to 6 bulbs, replace them and put it back together.

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.

SOURCE: Replacements for gear indicator bulbs on 2004 Sonata

Hello: The bulb that illuminates the P-R-N-D-L side is available from any good auto parts store; NAPA, A&A, etc. I used a Wagner # W31-2723, it works great and costs $1.59. For the manual / auto shift side ( + - ) visit your local Radio Shack. The bulb is 12V / 25mA, # 272-1141. Remove the bulb holders
with a small flat blade screwdriver inserted into the slot in the bulb holder and
turn 1/4 turn counter-clockwise. The new bulbs must be prepped by removing
the clear heat shrink tubing and CAREFULLY removing the insulation from the
leads. These are extremely fine multi-strand wires and will cut or break VERY EASILY ! Twist the strands of each lead wire well and insert into the
holes in the bottom of the bulb holder, then wrap the lead wires around the
outside of the bulb holder using the four vertical slots just like the original bulbs were wired. Trim off the excess wire ( you don't want to cause a short-
circuit and pop a fuse ) and replace the square plug into the bottom of the
bulb holder. Insert the bulb and holder into the hole in the pc board and give
1/4 turn clockwise to secure. I engineered this little fix after finding out that
the local Hyundai dealer wanted fifty-odd dollars for the bulb/socket/lpigtail
assy. or the pc board with two bulbs and pigtail. I know the wire prep and
insertion proceedure is a bit tedious, but it works great and sure beats paying the dealer's price ! ! !

Gear shifting panel light


I am assuming that your shift lever is on the steering column. Either the bulb for indicator has burned out or the shift indicator switch on the transmission has failed. There are 3 different engine options for this truck and 3 different transmissions. I would need to know which engine and transmission your truck has, to give better info. FYI, you have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulb, assuming that is the problem.

2006 HONDA CIVIC GEAR SHIFT LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT


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

How to replace the light bulb under neath the gear shift?


There should be some screws to remove the outside cover of the gear shift. Then the shift indicator P,R, N, D, etc should snap off. Then there is the light bulb housing underneath that indicator.
