backlite for PRNDL graphics on 1990 console

Recommended Posts

I had backlight on shifter graphics and it went out.  I got into the console but can't locate the bulb/light.  I put a new LED 194 in the cig lighter.  Does anyone know where or how to access this bulb/light?????

I think I see the bulb in the photo below. I don't have a 90 so I can't say for sure if that is it.

Yes, it is in a twist lock socket that removes from the underside of the shifter centered directly under the indicator strip. Comes out with a quarter turn, then the wedge base lamp pulls straight out. An LED 194 will work but may "hot spot"  a bit compared to an incandescent bulb.  Be sure to observe polarity if installing an LED bulb.
