Light in gear console

My daughters 99 Sentra's gear console light is not working. Do I look for a fuse (which one) or do I have to dismantle the console to replace the light?

The light that lights up the shifting console is out. Is this a bulb or fuse? How can I get it working so that I see my gears at night?

if the otjer dash lights work then it is a bulb gone out. if none of the dash lights work you have a bad fuse or possibly a bad dimmer wheel. to replace the bulb you will need to remove the plastic shroud from around the shifter.

Where you shift gears.. at night the lights in just that area doesnt come on. do i need to replace a fuse or what

most likely it's the bulb itself, most 'lighting' for the dash and such are on a single fuse - you'll have to dismantle the center console to get at it directly

How do you disassemble the console of '02 Nissan Sentra w/Auto

lot of work. There is a bolt in the glove box that you will have to remove. first open your glove box and squeeze the two sides to drop the box out. then on the left towards the radio there is a gold bold. I believe 10mm socket would fit. unbolt that and that should free up the front to allow you to get the rest out. That little light is a pain to get to. alot of bolts and screws for one light.

Lights have gone out on dash console and gear console.

From my experience you are better off if you take it to a shop and have a professional take the instrument cluster apart. Especially on newer cars this is something best left to the pros.

Nissan Sentra shifter lamp replacement

Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
make sure the fuse is good.
If the fuse is good then remove the screws holding the center console cover. You will need a long and short phillip screwdriver. Look for screws in the cup holder, under the handbrake handle and where the console runs under the dash. You may have to move seats forward/backward to reach the screws. When you attempt to raise the console cover you will notice you overlook a screws. Remove them also. You may be able to reach the bulb without removing the gear shift handle. DO NOT TOUCH any other electronics you see. The AIRBAG ACTUATOR is located here also. Replace bulb. Test before reassembly. Good Saturday morning project.
