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.

Nothing goes in that hole. If coolant is leaking from that hole, it means the shaft seal on the water pump is bad. The only fix is to change the water pump.

I have an automatic gear shift console light bulb that needs replacement. It's a 1998 Toyota Corolla. I already removed the two side screws and two compartment bolts to get the two console pieces apart....


That is a very tough bulb to replace. Once you get the center console pieces out of the way there should be a couple of screws or blots that hold down the trim around the gear shift. Remove those and lift gentley. You will barley be able to access the bulb. but it can be done.

1998 corvette, center console power outlet has come apart, how do you get to the underside of the console?


Open the hatch/door on the center console, pry up that plastic piece just forward of the door with a small screwdriver working from the rear, remove those 2 nuts in the recess, unscrew the door if you wish for easier handling, at the rear of the console opening there are 2 small plastic covers, pop those out and remove the 2 nuts under them, lift the rear of the console and slide it back just enough to unplug the fuel door opening button( there isn't much slack in the wiring for this button so don't pull the console back too far ). I suspect you only needed step one, but this will get the console out for easier access to the power outlet.

NEED TO REEPROGRAMING A REMOTE CONTROL FOR A MALIBU 1998 HOW '?


1. Make sure ignition is in the OFF position.
2. Locate the Programming Connector in the trunk (center of rear shelf). It is a plastic connector with
two wires leading up to it. The connector is not plugged into anything. You may have to pull back
trim to access the connector.

3. The programming connector should have two terminals. Connect both terminals with a suitable
jumper wire. The Keyless Entry Module will lock then unlock all the door lock motors once. Make
sure the terminals remain connected throughout the programming procedure.

4. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for at least 15
seconds or until the vehicle automatically locks and unlocks the door locks. Your new remote has
been accepted and all existing remote codes have been erased.

5. Repeat the previous step for each transmitter to be programmed. Do not remove jumper wire in
between programming of transmitters.

6. Remove the jumper wire from the Keyless Programming Connector.

If it is the water pump it will have a rad hose attached to it. There is supposed to be a small hole in the bottom of the water pump. When it starts leaking, it's time to replace the pump. You can do it yourself. A few wrenches and a couple hours is all you need. If you are unsure pick up a Haynes manual for your car when you get the new pump.

Replacing a heater core


YOU DO NOT NEED TO REMOVE THE DASH BOARD. IT WILL BE BEHIND THE GLOVE BOX. LOOK UNDERNEATH THE DASH AND YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE A PANEL TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE HEATER CORE. THE PANEL WILL BE ABOVE THE PASSENGERS FEET ON THE FIREWALL.
