Hi,

I am assuming that you are referring to the PRNDL / gear shift indicator for Automatic Column Shifts, if so, then yes. Lights to provide back illumination for the PRNDL are normally wired together with the other dashboard/parklights. They are smaller than the standard dashboard bulbs.

BTW, I was made to understand that TJs with column shift automatic are very rare, my compliments.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back if I have not addressed your concern, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Shift my jeep in 4wd now the shifter is loose and it is staying in 4wd


Sounds like the rod from the 4WD shifter has come loose form the transfer case or from the shifter lever. Some use a cable. Look under the vehicle. A rod or cable will go from the shifter to the transfer case. If it is a cable and the ends appear attached the cable is broken inside the housing. Reattach ends of rod or replace cable .

5th gear shifter linkage reverse


can i assume you pulled the side plug on tranny and the level
is right there? or gone way down, ever do a 50k service? to it?

M/T tranny (not auto) what engine? the m./t varies by HP of ENGINE.
If its really in 5th ( i bet not)
if the RPM rises fast that is called clutch slip
yes, clutch bad.
if not in 5th actual rpm will rise fast too. slip,
if the other gears wroke like 4th at wide open throttle up hill
gee the chutch is good.
so its not going in to 5th (for lots of reasons)
but 1 reason , is easy.

-AX 4/5/15 transmission
this tranny has a shift tower. (that thing on top that the shifter lever
fits in to)
most tranny that fail to actual shift into gear
is caused by a $1 plastic part failure
so pull the shifter off top of the shift tower.
and look, is the plastic buffer parts all bad, missing, cracked or
destoryed, sure they all end there... all.
i can also remove the shifter, lever.
and shift to 5ht by hand, and see that it DOES.
it either does, or does not.
if it does, the lever parts are bad.
that simple.
see part 61 (im guessing which of 5 tranny it is , )

No, There is no modifications of that sort to install a shifter if you have the application correct.. Oops, you mean remove? Still no. The floor should have a removable pan on the hump above the trans.

Gear shifter does NOT shwitch from park and break


SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette

Trouble shifting into 4 wheel drive


The lever is hooked up to a cable system that hooks into each type of drive. It could be that the wire hook end is missing the notch to engage in 4x4 and passes it instead. You can get easy access to it directly underneath the shifter under the jeep.
