    went down one of our many bumpy ass roads friday evening on the way to softball practice, and now the shifter light has gone out. i checked all the fuses....all were still good. anyone ever had it happen? what came loose if the fuses were still good?

    its a blown bulb then (bulbs dont last forever). your gonna have to take apart your whole console to change that light. when i changed my light out, i also changed out the cup holder tabs since i was in there anyways.
