The shifter light never worked since I bought my Cat last year, so I decided today to fix this little bug assuming it would just be a bulb replacement…
Well, looks like not - tried two brand new bulbs (1445) with no success. Long story short, tested 0V between live wire & ground while all dash lights are brightening on strong.
Thought then that wiring was damaged when new carpet was installed (by previous owner), but not so sure after I vainly tried to locate where the wire exits at the front end of the carpet under the dash and then under both sill plates.
So looked at the thing again and realised that the “mini harness” comes in through the side of the shifter box and may be routed underneath the floor?? BTW, both backup lights work perfect.
I am not well equipped to lift the car at the present time… can anyone tell me what the actual routing should be.
