I've done this many times. First grab the shifter and pull up with everything you have. It will come off if you pull hard enough. You may have to use 2 hands and a couple of legs to get it off the first time. After is is off, simply use a screw driver and pry out the trim piece with the letters on it, you know the D,R,N, 1, 2.... The light is under it, so simply untwist the bulb holder to undo it. Ensure you align the notch for the correct gear. You'll be able to tell if you are in Park and your gear selector says Neutral. After you put the trim on, just put the selector knob back on with a sharp blow with your fist.

hi.t thing to do firstly is check your fuses under bonnet and then check the fuses inside the car which are mostly under the dashboard and are easy to get to.
It could be that one of your other fuses has blown and caused this to short circuit.
Check all the fuses throughout and if they are all ok except the one that lights up the gears your in,then change that one.
It might not be that the bulb has blown at all.
If this all fails,then you will have to go through the process of taking out the centre concule which is or should only be clipped into place by self tapping screws which should just pop out with a flat ended screw driver and are easy to push back into place with your thumb.
Hope this has helped.

Where is the location of fuse for the light in the stick shift.


There is no fuse specific to this light. This light is fused with the park lights. If the park lights work,suspect the shifter bulb to be burned out

Where is the fuse for the shifter bulb on a 2002 toyota camry


Most shifter lighting is not a standard bulb. It's similar to a thin belt that has electronic components. this is located in the shifter itself. Might want to remove the cover and check to see is you can replace the item your self.

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.

The letters on my shift selector of my Nissan Do not light up.


Likely its the bulb that illuminates the shift selector, There not to hard to replace, it will actually prove to be more of a challenge trying to find the bulb anywhere other then the dealership where you will pay around $150 for a $10 bulb. as for actually replacing it, its not to difficult if you can find the screws that mount the plate that has the letters around your shifter, once you find those, just pull the bulb out, and replace it with a new one. Be sure to disconnect the battery before doing this though, so you dont cause a short. If you cant figure it out, its probably best to seek help from a mechanic or someone that is familiar with it.
