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.

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.

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.
