Smile Gear Shift Light Not Working

I literally got my 2001 PT Cruiser Limited today about an hour ago and the light that should be lighting up the gears is not working. Would that be caused by a fuse or a bulb? Am I missing a button or switch or something that I should push to make the light work? I haven't had a chance to play around with my car too much yet. I would love some help!

Welcome to the Forum!!! The light should be on. If you bought it from the dealer you should take it back, normally you have a 30 day warranty. If you bought it from a "Person on the street", you will be out of luck as far as warranty work. Someone on the Forum will answer your question on how to check out the bulb. Are you sure that is the only lamp that is out?

If it IS the little light bulb under the center console, it's not too bad of a job getting the console off to get to it. Take the gear shift head off the lever (if it's stock, there a little screw under the chin of the snake head might be an allen screw or torx bolt, can't remember, it's been years). Take the rear two electrical window switches out. Side the driver seat back as far as it will go, pull the emergency brake handle up as far as it will go. Look for a couple of screws that hold the whole console down. When they're out, pull the console up from the rear. The front 12V socket will still be attached by wires so don't pull the console all the way. You should be able to get to the shifter light bulb now.
