SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon light in shifter console out.

If just the shifter light is out then it is not the fuse, the top plate of the shifter just pulls off, on some models there are 2 screws, the bulb is below that top plate.

SOURCE: How do you disassemble the console of '02 Nissan Sentra w/Auto

lot of work. There is a bolt in the glove box that you will have to remove. first open your glove box and squeeze the two sides to drop the box out. then on the left towards the radio there is a gold bold. I believe 10mm socket would fit. unbolt that and that should free up the front to allow you to get the rest out. That little light is a pain to get to. alot of bolts and screws for one light.

SOURCE: how to replace bulb in the shifter console

Bulb is located under the P/R/N/D/2/R indicator. Normally you just need to remove the black plastic that surrounds sifter and indicator and has the cup holders.But the plastic may be brittle, so remove the center console. See photos.

SOURCE: 2007 pontiac vibe gear shift light replacement.

On the 2004 Pontiac Vibe that I owned, I ended up taking it to the dealer. Perhaps this advice can avoid having you end up at the same place!

Remove the middle environmental control knob (fan blower speed, I think) by tugging on it until it comes off. Underneath you will find a single Phillips screw. Remove the screw and gently (so you don't mar it), pull at the plastic trim surrounding the environmental control area. It should pop out. You may also want to remove the two-prong AC outlet by prying it gently out with a small slotted screwdriver before attempting to pry out the trim panel.

After that panel is out of the way, you are ready to tackle the plastic trim surrounding the shift knob. Begin by removing the small holding compartment at the base of the shift knob. There is a single Philips screw holding the plastic piece to a supporting brace on the lower end. Four additional screws on the upper end are revealed by the removal of the environmental control trim piece as previously described.

Okay, from there, you're ready to gently pry loose the trim panel surrounding the shift knob.

The bulb can be located on the driver's side. It's a 'funny' looking bulb that is integrated into a two wire bundle. You may end up having to replace the bulb+wire bundle as a unit. The electrical connector is on the opposite side of the shift knob.

Good luck!

Smell something burning coming from gear shifter


Are all your gear indicators correctly lit on the shifter? On my car the continual heat of the shifter bulb over the years damaged the plastic holding the bulb socket so that the bulb and socket fell straight down and ended up in the carpet under the shifter, with the hot bulb in the carpet causing the burning smell. The fix? Take the console apart to access the bulb, replace the bulb with an LED one with no heat to speak of, then use electrical tape to hold the bulb and socket in the damaged hole in the console, then reassemble the console.

Is there a light on the shifter console for nighttime driving?


Yep! it's a common problem with most of the cars, there is usually a tiny 12 Volt bulb that is supposed to light the shifter dials. Some are easy to replace some are tricky, depending no how complicated it is to remove the cover on around the shifter.

Light in center consile where shifter is came apart.


From Lusty Kid:

This is a guestimate:

Allen wrench to remove the T handle.

Move rug from underneath shifter console to acces retraining bolts to unit. You are on your own after removing it. Reverse process to install back. Replace the T handle. Make sure release button is engaged. Oh, fix the light after parts are remove of course!!!!!!
Happy Holidays!
