My 2010 Hyundai genesis gear selector has no lights, Where is the fuse?

Check gear selector code


Is this a automatic or Manuel transmission? I will guess at this time its your G.S.M (Gear Selector Mechanism) and you may need to have it replaced. Volvo's bad idea of never servicing the transmission fluid leads to many problems. The other reason you may have this light is that you need to have the software updates done for the transmission.

Gear shift Selector stuck


These were known for having faulty brake light switche that would cause that problem as well as cruise control inop. I would check that first. It operates the shift-lock solenoid which releases the shifter. There were also some problems with the ignition switches, but mostly on the gm cars.

Where is the neutral safety switch


The backup lamps will light whenever the ignition switch is in the RUNposition and the transaxle is in REVERSE. On older vehicles, this function was handled by a dedicated switch with a name such as the Neutral/Safety Backup Light Switch, or something similar. This switch was designed to keep the engine from starting in any gear except PARK and/or NEUTRAL. The switch contacts also activated the backup lights when the transaxle was placed in REVERSE.

On the vehicles covered by this manual, the backup lamp control function is part of an integrated switch called the Transaxle Range switch (sometimes also called the Park/Neutral Position or PNP switch). In addition to turning on the backup lights, the Transaxle Range switches primary function is to transmit to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) the driver's transaxle range selection. The PCM uses this information to control both engine and transaxle functions electronically.

The Transaxle Range switch is mounted externally on the transaxle. New service replacement switches come pinned in the NEUTRAL position and no adjustment should be necessary. Please note that if the switch requires adjustment, GM recommends that their special tool J 41545 Park/Neutral Switch Alignment Tool be used to properly adjust the Transaxle Range switch, if required.



Removal & Installation

  1. Apply the parking brake and block the front wheels.
  2. Place the transaxle gear selector to NEUTRAL.
  3. Remove the air intake duct to access the switch located on the top of the transaxle at the range selector cable and arm.
  4. Disconnect the transaxle range selector cable.
  5. Detach the electrical connectors from the range selector switch.
  6. Remove the range selector lever retaining nut and lift off the lever.
  7. Unfasten the range selector switch mounting bolts, then remove the switch from the transaxle manual shaft.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Actually, there is no such thing as a "fuse problem". Please read this article: Where's The Fuse?

Then to answer your question: It does sound like you have lost power (or ground) to your Intrument panel cluster (IPC) (actually, Nissan calls it a "Combination Meter"). There MAY be a blown fuse involved, but then again, maybe not. If there is a blown fuse, you need to find out WHY.
I personally would recommend scanning the computer network in your vehicle to check for possible Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs) that may lead you to the failing circuit and give you a starting point for diagnostics. You would then diagnose the problem according to the troubleshooting charts for the DTC. If there are no DTCs present, then you should test all of the power and ground circuits to the IPC.

There are three fuses to the IPC or Combination Meter. They are all 10 Amp fuses and are all located in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. They are fuses #6, #14, and #19.

Intrument panel lights went out completely (dash lights), and when I turn on my headlights my clock, my gear indicator light on the instrument panel, and heater control displays go out.


There are a few things that can cause this. Check your fuse first. Could be marked Dash. If not, you will have to check the wires in the steering column with a wire schematic. If you have a question, please write back. I am here to help. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Is there a fuse for the lights that light up the gears? And my cig. lighter doesn't work? Is it a fuse that needs to be changed to a blub?


Yes there is a fuse for the cig. ltr. and the lights for the gears. However, a burnt out bulb could cause the gear selector not to light up.

This requires disassembling the console around the gear shifter.
