Question about 2004 Pontiac Vibe

Open Question

I have a 2006 Vibe and the gear shift light won't light. Is the procedure to change the bulb the same as on the 2004 Vibe? Could it be something other than the bulb? All other lights on the instrument panel are lit.

This is most likely due to a bad solenoid pack in transmission. You could have tranny serviced and see if it helps. Poor fluid condition makes valves stick in those.

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!

SOURCE: replace bulb on automatic gear shift console

If the shift console is on floor then look for bolts holding it down.  Take out bolts and then you can maneuver console so you can see where light is plugged in and get the right light to replace it.  It will probably be a small light which tend to cost a bit more, but at least you'll have the light back.

2006 HONDA CIVIC GEAR SHIFT LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT


all you have to do is pop the little square piece around the gear shift lever up and there is a wire with a tiny bulb on it. It is a pain in the butt to get all the pieces back in place and put the square piece back down. i have had to replace mine like every 6 months. be careful not to use too much force because you can break the clips that secure it in place and that will look worse than your bulb not working

How to change light bulb on console gear shift indicator. Wife can't tell what gear she is in after dark. Automatic trans. 2004 PT-Cruiser


I have 2002 Cruiser, not sure if it's the same configuration. Here's what I did:
Remove the Console: Slide front seats all the way back and recline them all the way to get the armrests out of the way. Pull the emergency brake ALL the way up. Set the gear shift in neutral. Remove the 4 screws in the cup holders front and rear. Remove the rear window controller (pry out gently), then squeeze the tab and pull out each of the 2 connectors. I also have a 12v socket at the front of the console - squeeze the blue tab and pull gently. The console should be free and should lift straight up with a little coaxing.
Remove the Gear Shift indicator assembly: You MIGHT be able to remove the light bulb without doing this, but I couldn't. With a T10 torx screwdriver, remove the 4 screws in each corner. Lift the assembly up as far as practical (a couple inches). The bulb socket under the PRND21 indicator has 2 very small tabs on each side that no normal-sized human being can squeeze together - I pried the bulb socket out of the white 'shroud' with a screwdriver at each tab location (2).
Pull on the black socket. The socket rotates freely and is NOT the normal "turn a quarter turn and it's out" type socket. (That'd be too easy!) The bulb is a standard interior auto bulb. Replace it and reverse the procedure to reinstall. About 30 minutes for this job.

2006 vibe radio display light on left side won't light up


I also own a 2004 Pontiac Vibe and our company delivery vehicle is a 2006 Vibe, both have this problem. I had a friend who repairs circuit boards re-solder new bulbs. You need to know what you are doing, the heat from the gun can burn out the new bulbs.
