LIGHT ON PRNDL OUT ON DASH

THE GEAR INDICATOR LIGHT IS OUT. HAVE CHECKED ALL THE FUSES AND THEY ARE OK. THIS IS THE LIGHT THAT SHOWS WHAT GEAR YOU ARE IN. NO PROBLEM WITH PUTTING THE CAR IN GEAR. JUST CAN'T SEE WHAT GEAR YOU ARE IN BECAUSE THE LIGHT IS OUT.

    On my 2002 Buick Century, the light on the prndl and mileage comes and goes also the cruise light will come and go. When the light stays on for the cruise A/C wont work. When a/c works cruise light wont work. The mileage light also seems to be tied into these other 2 problems some how. I went to "expert" he said "yea, there are 35 hits on the computer and then he erased them all. "Expert told me to bring him a BCM and all would be well.

    Took the car to the dealership and there is a shortage in the cluster box. The price to get a new one and have it installed is $577.

It could be something as simple as a bulb being burnt on the dash panel

    There is no bulb for this ----uses reflection from dash ---not reflecting any light onto the PRND position and can't see it at night without interior light on-----

26002487-w0jffanovav232xjqcbliw5g-1-0.gif Don't think you need take shifter knob off . Just PRNDL trim plate an upper console plate . They should just pull up , use plastic trim tool to get it so you can get your fingers under an pull up carefully .

Did they change the BCM or PCM? The BCM doesn't have anything to do with the gauges or transmission shifting or the PRNDL lights. The transmission range sensor is where I would start. This sends a signal to the PCM, from the PCM to the PRNDL lights. The PCM also reads other sensor for shifting. I would have to put it on a scanner to see what was going on. Three things I would definitely check are the range sensor, wires from the range sensor to the PCM and the PCM.

Prndl (gear shifter) not lighting up at light so cant see what gear it is in. Don't see it as a fuse option


It shares a fuse with something else. So if it doesn't work, the bulb may be out. Unless you notice dash lights that don't light up, then you should check those fuses.

1997 gmc 1500 went to start and tach and speed odometer not working and transmission shifts in hard and wont shift down stays in like high gear


Check transmission fuse its the one labeled PRNDL or similar.Use a test light when you check it by the way.If the fuse is good then its probaly your ignition switch failed.If that fuse is bad or the ignition switch is not suppling power to that fuse your tack,speedo,and gear indicator wont work, and your transmission will go into a safe mode.Safe mode is just the transmission staying in 3rd gear all the time until you fix this.

What does the transmission light look like on the dash for a 2002 lincoln ls


The only transmiision light that will show up on your dash would be where you see the different gears you are such as PRNDL. If you are ahving transmission problems or at least your computer believe it is where the gears show an "E" will show up there instead of what gear you are in. Below I took some snapshots of all the dash warning lights with desciptions of there meaning for you. I hope this helps and good luck.

4 wd will not engage ,indicator lights on dash do not light


If its not engaging into 4 WD the vaccum actulator is more than likely stuck. The actulator is located on the front of the axle next to the the front gear hub it will have a plastic cover over it. Unbolt the two 10mm bolts that hold the cover on and spray down with WD-40, also pull back the rubber cover thats on the actulator staff and spray it. You might have to hit the staff a few times to get it to move just make sure its in 4WD. I had the same problem, that part is exposed to alot of water, snow, salt and so on. Or you could just replace it but its cheaper to spray it down with WD-40
