Default Gear Shift lights/lamps

It looks as though the gear shift panel is not lighting up (not the one on the dash the one around the shifter)

It also appears that although the passenger heat warmer seat switch is backlit , the drivers side one is not. However both seam to be working and both indicators (dots) come on when engaged.

is this the same problem? is this a fuse or lamp or electrical issue?

thanks.

It is unlikely that all the shift position indicator lights on the console would fail simultaneously, so a common fault is suggested. Looking a wiring diagram the ground wire is only common fault. You will need to remove the console and find the black ground wire G101. You may need a Honda Shop Manual to locate the ground, however it should not be far from the console.

It is not clear from transmission range switch, but I suspect that shift position lights are led's and may not be replaceable.

good luck

It could be as simple as a loose bulb or burned out bulb. Your accord has the same switches as my TSX and my passenger switch has a problem with the back light bulb. Also the VSA switch. I haven't had time to inspect.

interesting, yeah bulbs are usually simple. having to take apart the centre console to replace one is kind of a pain


thanks.

Default What kind of bulb and where to buy

I need a replacement bulb for my 05 Accord gear shift, all I have to go on is S14V 1.4W

I have done internet searches and called a few places. Where can I get a bulb?

You may be able to find a match at the autoparts store. I think that I found one that matches that description. Yours is 14V and 1.4W.

The Honda OEM number is 54070-SDC-A81. You can get one at the dealership.
