Right behind the gear shift is the arm rest...it should open up...look and for screws and remove...then look around the front and check for screws there too...then pull up on console and around the shifter assembly you should see a light bulb and replace it...

    it's easier if you know where the bulb is. But first, there are 4 bolts to remove: 2 at the rear under the armrest; 1 under the little cup just to the rear of the shift lever; and 1 more under a rubber plug in the forward-most tray. The bulb is on the driver's side, about even with the "N" in the gear indicator, accessible when you lift up the console (follow the wire). The socket comes out the bottom of the holder with a quarter turn. The bulb then pulls straight out of the holder. We disassembled way too much stuff because we didn't know where the bulb was.

Could be a couple things. It could be that the transmission selector switch is bad,or is not making a good connection at the connector.Or,it could be in the steering column,that the selector/shifter control is broken.

The shifting gear locks, like inside the console. the only way I can change the gears is when i stick a pin into a small hole located on the top left of the console.


Either your brake light fuse, brake switch or shift lock solenoid is bad. Any one of those being bad will keep the shifter locked. Have them checked out.

2000 es300 lexus auto w overdrive button overdrive 4th gear not work


There isn't anything wrong with your car. This is perfectly normal. I have a 2000 ES300 as well as other people that I know and it operates in the same way. Overdrive doesn't mean the same thing for every car or transmission. In our case overdrive is simply a reference to the top gear which is 4th gear. When you switch overdrive off(which is depressing the button causing the O/D OFF dash light to illuminate,) the highest gear becomes 3rd because you turned 4th gear or overdrive off. The application scenario for this is usually mountainous terrain where a lot of uphill driving makes it more feasible not to up shift into 4th gear while ascending and descending. It will not switch back to overdrive or 4th gear until you re-engage it by turning the overdrive back on or repressing the button. Again, when the O/D OFF dash light is illuminated, overdrive which is 4th gear is off and the highest gear will then become 3rd. It will never shift into 4th gear while this light is illuminated or overdrive is off. When you press the button and the O/D OFF dash light is NOT illuminated overdrive is on and therefore it will shift into 4th gear as usual. This applies to all 97-2001 ES300's and probably any other car you drive tat exhibits this same type of change when overdrive is turned off.
