hi.t thing to do firstly is check your fuses under bonnet and then check the fuses inside the car which are mostly under the dashboard and are easy to get to.
It could be that one of your other fuses has blown and caused this to short circuit.
Check all the fuses throughout and if they are all ok except the one that lights up the gears your in,then change that one.
It might not be that the bulb has blown at all.
If this all fails,then you will have to go through the process of taking out the centre concule which is or should only be clipped into place by self tapping screws which should just pop out with a flat ended screw driver and are easy to push back into place with your thumb.
Hope this has helped.

most newer vehicles have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad! I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem! when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first good luck

I suppose its a sports mode function where the + enables you to upshift and the - to downshift.
Try using this mode when you are driving as you might like it if you used to drive manual cars before...

This situation sounds like multiple problems. The can't shift out of park is the brake shift interlock. When this happens, turn the key to accessory and then shift to neutral. Then you can start the truck.
Problem is the shifter assembly--the interlock solenoid is not serviceable, you have to buy the whole shifter assembly. The other problem(shift indicator) not matching the position the selector is in, you need to replace the inhibitor switch, a.k.a the range switch. I believe these are dealer items only.
Hope helpful with this information.
