If the instrument panel lights up, the fuses are OK. You prob just have a burned out bulb at the shifter dial. You need to remove the center console to change it;
The bulb number you need to buy is: "194".

Your battery is not charged and gets drained constantly, dome lights doesn't take much voltage to be lit. Get a voltmeter and check on the battery. Engine off it should be all charged up and 12V ish. Try to start your engine, should be 13-14v charging, if not, then it is your alternator not charging or SOMEHOW your battery doesn't receive enough charging from the alternator.
When you turn on the headlight while engine is running and died off because the alternator some how couldn't supply enough current to power both headlights and motor ignition system
Get your alternator tested, before that all connections between alternator and battery is NOT LOOSE, or broken or damaged. Then go to auto electrician. Then sort out your fuses later.

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.

IF a 10 amp blows you have a head short past the fuse . If it takes some time to blow the short may be at 9.5 amps on an intermittent basis or an occasion that the bare wire touches earth. Look at all the wires and harness and look for burn spots or places where the wires are pinched. Look for wire fault on the shifter area as it is most likely being pinched on the shifter movement.

I have a 2008 chevy aveo that won't shift into gear unless we press the shift lock release. What is causing that and how expensive is it to fix?


It could be a few things....I just had this same problem with my 2008 chevy aveo this week. Also, my check engine light came on the very next day after the gear shifter started locking. I called Bob Bell and they told me that the gear shifter locking is probably due to a sensor going bad that tells your car it is in park. However, after taking my car to my brother-in-law (who has very LITTLe knowledge about repairing cars), we discovered that my brake lights were not working either. He told me that is why my check engine light is on - because it is extremely dangerous to drive without brake lights. We checked the fuses to make sure there was no fuse blown and they were all just fine. So bottom line, the problem was that there is a brake switch under your dash board where your brake is. My switch keeps sticking and will probably eventually need to be replaced. When the switch works properly, my brake lights work fine, my gear shifter unlocks and my check engine light goes out. Not sure how much it is to fix this switch if that is the problem but I hope it helps!

How do you remove shifter being stuck at park for a 1990 toyota camry?


For the short term and as a temporary measure, the shift lever can be released by depressing shift lock override button which is in a small hole next to the shifter, typically covered with a small piece of plastic.

A permanent fix is needed though. The transmission shifter has a safety interlock. You must depress the brake to release the interlock in-order to shift into a drive or reverse gear. This system is powered by electricity. The fuse may be blown. Check the fuses for faults. The brake pedal / brake light circuit must be functioning in order to put the car in gear. Check the blue 10amp brake light fuse. Make sure the wiring in the trunk does not have breaks that may cause the fuse to blow

No odometer light or gear selector. tried changeing cluster didn't work. didn't know if it was a common problem. maybe an easy solution before i start diggin into it.


Thanks Johnyboyy & Sam35edm! I checked my fuse (10amp) and it looked ok. I replaced it and the lights for the odometer and gear shift indicator both lighted up. I then inspected the old fuse and it looked a little tarnished on the contacts. I then cleaned the contacts on both sides of the original fuse with a razor blade to remove the tarnish. The light lit brighter than ever! Looks like the fuse wasn't making good contact in its socket because of the tarnish.
