Default Automatic transmission light?

I was driving (for a very long time, over a very long distance) last night, and noticed that there was no light for the transmission knob. I then realized that I could not remember if it ever was lit up at all. So, is the transmission console supposed to be illuminated if the headlights are on? Or do you just look at the indicator on the dash? Deep thoughts after a very stressful weekend...

Yes the center console should also be lit when the headlight switch is on.

Mine just blew out. I tried getting that bulb socket out and no matter what i do, it won't pop out. I dont want to give it too much so it doesn't break. Anyone ever pull the bulb socket out of the selector housing? Mine is a 2009

Hrm... I will take a few pictures this weekend if I remember. I have been intrigued with LED lights lately. Might have to change some bulbs!

Mine was out when I got my PT. It was a little tough reaching up under the console to remove the socket. But, I don't remember if I turned it or just pulled it out. I made my job harder by not pulling the console, I just loosened the front screws.
