Did you check the bulb? Pry up on the indicator plate. The bulb is in a tube to the drivers side of the numerals.

I put one of these LEDs in the shifter display - much brighter than the stock bulb
For an interior light, that'd be enough reason for me not to buy one. I drive at night a lot and dim all of my interior lights down as dim as they'll go so my night vision will not be affected. I even had to put a piece of black electrical tape over my KC driving light switch, it was so bright it was terrible at night.

Opened up the shifter box and replaced the bulb. Took 3 bucks and all of 5 minutes. Plus i found a nifty little stop to tie in some green LED floor lights:) thanks for the info.
