The light of the gear shifting indicator panel is not working
I consult with one of the mechanic , he said that in this model there is no bulb in the panel, there is an electronic circuit.
So the problem will be in the electronic circuit.
My opinion is that this type of problem should not be complicate, the remidy should be simple.

I just Replaced the dash lights in my 2000 crown vic and there are bulbs in there. I replaced 6 of them and I can see my shift indicator, speedo, and the other gauges at night now. It took me about 2 hours to figure out how to pull the dash apart.

Don't think you need take shifter knob off . Just PRNDL trim plate an upper console plate . They should just pull up , use plastic trim tool to get it so you can get your fingers under an pull up carefully .
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.
It wouldn't even be in a repair manual-seldom needing replacement. Where is it? If on the instrument panel- hard to get to- the cluster has to come out to replace the bulb. If on the center console-much easier- just pull the top of the console off, shifter, indicator there? The bulb should be easy to get to from there.
you need to disconnect the speedometer then remove the 6 or 8 screws that hold the instrument panel to the dash.if its an automatic you will have to unhook the shift indicator cable from the shift colume.then pull the instrument panel out of the dash,turn the panel upside down and you will see the bulb sockets.replace all the bulbs at this time so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.when hooking up the shift indicator cable make sure it indicates the properly selected gear when moving the shifter to each gear position.
This is not a "bad bulb" situation. The odometer and shift quadrant is an electronic display and to repair it you have to remove the entire instrument panel and send it to GM or an independent repair shop. You can check E-Bay for the name of various shops that repair or replace the instrument panel. If you get a new one, you must have the model number of the current panel. That is obtained by having a mechanic remove your current on. On the back is the model number. I just had to replace mine and it cost me about $150 from a source I found on E-Bay. If you go to your Buick dealer, it will probably cost you close to $400 just for the panel.
