Usually this lamp can be accessed by prying off the cover or by removing cover retaining screws located on top of panel or side of console. Spend a little time exploring the console you will probably come to a revelation. Recommend using a GOOD flashlight to explore with.

2004 chevy impala brake light isses switch has been replaced and so have fuses and bulbs still no lights


Do you know how to test using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Is there B+ voltage going into the brake light switch ? An coming out when the brake pedal is pressed ? What fuse's ? There is only one fuse for the brake lights !
The BRAKE SW fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally-open stop lamp switch. When you press the brake pedal the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to the left and right stop lamp assemblies and to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL). The left and right stop lamp along with the CHMSL are grounded at G302.
Do you know about the right insturment panel fuse box ?

I have a 2005 jeep liberty. none of the 4wd lights on the dash light up when selecting the different 4wd modes, stopped working today. can anyone please help me with this


usa? not diesel?
why are you in 4wd? snow, ice, off road, do tell.
not sure what lamps are dead, no photo by you.
are you talking parking lamps dead in dash? called illumination
or the mode lamps. ????
where on the dash, the main cluster? where? TRY TO BE EXACT.
do you mean shift console lamps, ????? those are on the dimmer feed.
the best answer is get car serviced
or scan it, see if there are errors. to the 4wd system etc.

we cant do grinds here, we deaf and blind and....
find a shop , that can find LOCATIONS. of noise
only That works, ever.
grinding in all modes of use, parked, neutral. driving, hills, gears.
??????????
do you have any warning lamps glowing ,driving?
the lamps if the 4wd lamps are dead.
tell me you are not using 4Low mode on pavement, first.
most times fuse are first, 2007 this changes but 2005
there are 2 fuse boxes, cab and eng bay.

ON PAGE 166 in the oper guide
lamp 6 dead, 4low?
lamp 19 FULL TIME , dead or stuck on??????
or the switch bank dead?
command trac or select trac 4wd.? NV241 or NV242?
2 options day 1.

here is my guess,
you are using 4wd incorrectly
do tell what tires are sitting on.
the me it car is command or select trac opted
and all lever selections you tried.
EACH 4wd mode has rules.
rule one stay out of 4-low. unless off road

the opr guide is here if lost.
see the word secret , here.

http://jeepdied.com/books.html

command trac, 4w is not for driving on ice free pavemenet
Comman trac is part time 4wd, (the word part meas, ice or dirt)
select trac, is full time, (never in 2w low) 4H works on pavement even dry. page 240 in your op guide.
The rules on the 2 boxes are totally different.

Backup Lamps
The TURN SIG fuse in the console fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to park neutral position switch. When the gear selector lever is in the REVERSE position, power is supplied to both of the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G402.
Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B2552
The body control module (BCM) controls the backup lamp relay. The BCM grounds the backup lamp relay control circuit energizing the backup lamp relay. The BCM connects directly to the center console fuse block with no external wiring between them.
DTC B2553
The body control module (BCM) controls the backup lamp relay. The BCM grounds the backup lamps relay control circuit energizing the backup lamp relay. The BCM connects directly to the center console fuse block with no external wiring between them.
Backup Lamps Always On
  1. Turn ON the ignition.
  2. Shift the gear selector lever to the REVERSE position and then to the PARK position.
Do the backup lamps turn on in REVERSE and turn off in PARK?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3

3

Remove the backup lamps relay.
Do the backup lamps turn OFF?

Which fuse number is for the rear brake lights


The HZDL fuse in the console fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open stoplamp switch. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to both left and right stop lamp assemblies and to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL). The CHMSL is grounded at G301. The left stop lamp is grounded at G401 and the right stop lamp is grounded at G402.

Dash lights do not work


Power is supplied to the instrument illumination by the "TAIL/ILLUM LIGHT" fuse, Fuse #4 (15 Amp) located in the dash fuse block under the left side of the dash. This fuse provides power for both the primary and secondary sides of the TAIL LIGHT relay. The Combination (Headlamp) switch provides a ground path for the primary circuit of the TAIL LIGHT relay. When the primary circuit is completed by the Combination switch, the secondary contacts close and provide power to the tail lamps as well as to all of the instrument illumination bulbs. The ground for the instrument illumination bulbs is a variable-resistance circuit which is controlled by the illumination controller. The final ground for both the combination switch and the illumination controller is Ground G302, located under the center console.

Will not shift into gear from park with motor running, also cab lights and electric windows not working. Will start from neutral and then shift into gears.


Might want to start with checking your stop lamps & the fuse for the stop lamps.

The shift interlock is part of the stop lamp circuit on the 97-03 MY trucks, and without working stop lamps, the truck does not come out of park,

Not too sure what you mean by cab lights, is this the interior dome lamps or the instrumentation illumination ?

Gear locking


check to see if your brake lamps are working and they are not you need a brake lamp switch or you have a blown fuse. if the brake lamps work you need to check the solinoid under center console panel and see if it is getting voltage or sometimes if you have spilt soda or coffee around that area it may be sticking.

Nissan Sentra shifter lamp replacement


Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
First
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.
