Replace Automatic Transmission Indicator Light

Hi all,

I am trying to figure out how to take apart the shifting assembly on a 12 JKU auto trans. My letters do not light up at night and I am thinking there should be some soft of bulb underneath. I searched the internet and forums here and cannot find what I am looking for. Any help is appreciated!

my light started flickering at around 3000 miles and went out completely a few thousand later.

I wiggled connections the last time I had the center console out, no joy. I doubt you have a burned out bulb, it is probably a bad connection like mine. the faceplate is a contained unit that is probably a huge pain to pull apart, so I would start looking for the wiring to it and maybe read wires.

the center console is REALLY easy to remove. the hardest part is removing the t-case knob. the whole thing just sorta pops off after that.

lol it can get interesting. put it in 4 low and pull it straight off of the stalk. the first time takes A LOT of force, so watch your head and dont smack yourself in the face when the knob comes off. giving it a little side to side twisting helps
