    And you couldn't find the bulb? Hmm, idk the bulb should be there on the shifter assembly. If ya can't find it then idk. The answer is out there I'm sure, just don't remember where I read it. Sorry man wasn't trying to be a dick, normally people mention if they have searched or not there's a lot of search nazi's on here lol!

    Ok I'll try to get in there and repl it myself (like I already did w/ a HVAC console bulb) Then I'll post the 411 for future Sentra owners.

    I'm hoping the shifter console "PRND32" is lit and actually has a bulb.

    It is lit and there should be a bulb in there somewhere.

    Try this thread from another site post #8 this is what I was suggestion you try.
    http://www.b15sentra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=118789

    Or here's another Write up from the Internet:

    How do you replace the illumination light on the gear shift of a 2005 Nissan sentra?
    Answer:
    Just did this to our 2005 Sentra. You have to remove the entire center console: 2 screws up front (one on driver's side and one on pass side), 1 top middle (under small cover just in front of brake handle), and 2 in the rear (you have to remove the drink holder "cover" to get at them). Disconnect the 2 electrical connections for the cigarette lighters and remove the console. Now, the gear shift indicator "box" can be snapped off its locator posts, and underneath you will find the bulb holder. The shift indicator "box" can be lifted just enough to be able to twist and remove the bulb holder. The lamp can then be pulled straight out of the bulb holder.

    Repeat the process in reverse order to put it back together.

    Sorry to continue a 2 year old thread, but my light went out as well. I was wondering if an LED bulb could be put in instead of the 194 LL bulb?
