Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala
I cant get it out of the center console hole I can't figure out how to release it from the dash console.
This is a pain! You may need to remove the console to get access to the back of the lighter. When you look inside the lighter socket there should be 2 small square holes in the metal sides 180 degrees apart. The plastic bezel has corresponding bumps that fit in the holes and hold the lighter in. Try to push them in while pulling on the lighter socket.

Hi, that fuse did not come with your car. It may go to your radio, if someone installed an aftermarket radio in the truck.
Your fuses are laid out in the owner's manual, which you can download here if you don't have one:
Fuses start on page 6-60. The lighter fuse is #2 in the box at the end of the dash board. The instrument lights are powered by fuse #5, but that would be for all of the lights. If only the 2 gage lights are out, you probably need to replace the bulbs. I have pasted instructions for removing the instrument cluster below. Note that you may be able to replace bulbs without disconnecting everything and removing the cluster. It just depends on how much slack is in the cables, so try pulling the cluster out a bit with wires still attached to see if you can do it. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
