More than likely it is the combination switch on the steering column. This is a common issue on the older vehicles.

SOURCE: light is out on shifer of my 2004 nissan sentra how do I repalce

Transmission shift position indicator light.
First check the fuse. If that's the problem it's easier to fix.
If not you will have to remove the center console to get to the bulb. You will need a short phillip screwdriver. There always some hard to get to screws under the dash. Look around the edge of the plastic console for screws. If it has a cup holder, look inside it also. Make it a Saturday morning project. DO NOT touch any other electronics you see. The control actuator for the air bag may be there.
Make it a Saturday morning project. Test it before replacing the console cover.

How do I get to the license plate bulb for a 2004 nissan sentra


There are 2 bulbs above the license plate, each under a plastic cover. The covers are held in with 2 screws each. Just unscrew and remove the plastic covers and you should be able to access the bulbs.

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.

Headlamp replacement How do you get the old bulb out?


According to Nissan PDFs on line, it seems pretty straight forward, although it seems pretty cramped around the headlight assemblies (go figure...) For the driver's side, it recommends removing the battery to make some room in the 2004 book (I would agree, after seeing mine). For all, it recommends at least removing the negative battery cable.
It states several times NOT TO TOUCH THE BULB. The grease from your fingers will reduce the life of the bulb, if not damage it immediately.

I pasted the links for the PDFs below- one for the 2002 and one for the 2004. I can't wait to tackle mine in -20 weather.
Oh yeah- you will have to re-program your radio after disconnecting the battery.
Update: (Dec. 29/07) I changed mine today, and it was very easy.
1. Remove battery for driver's side bulb.
2. Unplug electrical connection to bulb. There is a locking clip that you depress with your thumb to unlock the connection to the bulb casing.
3. Turn the locking collar counterclockwise to unlock, and remove.
4. Remove dead bulb.
5. After comparing the bulbs to make sure they match, holding the new bulb by the plastic casing at the rear, insert the new bulb making sure the notches seat into the seating tabs. Remember- DON'T TOUCH THE BULB!
6. Re-install the locking collar clockwise, and the electrical connection plug.
7. Re-install the battery for driver's side installation. (Might be a good time to clean the posts if they are corroded.)
8. Test the bulb. Re-set your clock and re-tune the radio.

UPDATE- with small enough hands, you do not have to disconnect the battery. This is a wasted step.
ANOTHER UPDATE: I just used these instructions, and they were very good, but for older Sentras it's a little different.


On a 1996 there is no "clicking" mechanism to turn counter clockwise. Instead there is a wire holder keeping the bulb in place. You have to remove the wire holder, and then you can pull out the bulb in its holder. On the holder there was a plastic piece marked "press here" which when pressed, allows you to pull the old bulb out of the holder.

Hope helped (remember rated this help).

04 nissan sentra shifting hard


Do you have a CVT? (Continuosly Variable Transmission) I doubt that you do so if you dont, nissans are known to have hard shift into second gear you mean.(Once the car moves, its already in first gear) so if it shifts fine into other gears, I wouldnt worry too much unless it gets worse.

Sidelight flashes too fast


Replace the blinker. It is a small round cylinder under your dash. A common cause of this is that there is a burntout bulb on the back . Not the one thats blinking. You will see the signal indicator arrow blink really fast.If not then it is the blinker.
