    It does not have internal lighting, but there's a small light on the console near the rearview mirror that shines down on it. It's visible at night, but rather dim. Better to rely on the dash display.

    Perhaps you might want to clarify your "Smart Ass" statement, Cashr22. You come looking for help for an easy question that has been answered many times and is easy to search for, this question was posted very recently and would have been easy to find had you even attempted to scroll through some of the earlier posts listed, and you start flaming. Welcome to the Forum, S.A.

    Re: Light on shifter

    Which model does your wife have? Mine doesn't light up. I'm kind of disappointed, i liked the lighted console. You have to watch some of the bullies in this forum. It's getting to point I'm afraid to ask a question. Who wants to hear "go search for it yourself!". Especially for a question as simple as yours. I like to say welcome. I don't have too much experience with my coupe, but I willing to what little bit I have with you. I don't care how many times you ask. (The_Judge, i'm willing to bet he wasn't talking to you with his reply comment)

    Re: Light on shifter

    Do you ever use the search function to find something on the internet? Why would you think that using the search function on this site would be less useful?

    Re: Light on shifter

    Here's what I think about console shift indicators:

    The instrument cluster display of prnd123456 would be difficult to display on the console, and it would distract me, if I had to look down there to see what gear the wagon was in. It's bad enough to have to look down at the tiny HVAC buttons.

    Think in terms of any manual transmission shifter that has no console display and fewer choices.

    Here's what I learned a few weeks ago on this forum:

    A forum member took the cover off his console and found a hole in the mechanism to plug in a light bulb socket that will illuminate the indicator. If it's something you really want, there's your solution.

    It's good to see you teach. I wasn't quite sure if the "search" was was a general internet search or a forum search. I for one is learning how post pics

    I too am very interested in this. It would be nice to know how he got the cover off of the console. I think I could even put a light bulb in.

    My console looks like it's solid plastic with white lettering. Even if I wanted to put a light in there, the light wouldn't shine through.
