Automatic Shift lever, bulb out? 1995 corolla

I have only had my corolla for about 3 weeks but i have noticed when its dark out I can't see what setting my automatic transmission is in (Park,Reverse, Nuetral, Drive, ect.) I am assuming that a bulb is blown? Or is there not supposed to be a light down there?

There's a bulb that lights the shifter column area that will need to be replaced. Mine burnt out a few weeks ago too.

This "bulb" is on the instrument cluster, right?

I have the same problem on my 97. I found a website that gives details on how to change it, I'll try to find it. Sucks having to turn the overhead light on at night (which rarely works in mine)

Motomaster instrument replacement bulb 194LL (clear, long lasting, 2 bulbs for $2.99Cdn). It is a push-on bulb.

you know that you dont have to check to know on what setting the transmission is on, on the old one that my father has (a 88), you just have to count the numbers of echelons that you passed to know on what gear you are
(exemple, on a P-R-N-D-2-L, we i want to get from P to D, i count 3, P to R, R to N, N to D)

Ya I suppose that would work too but I've never really thought about it. It's only a problem at night. Sucked when I wondered why my car was going so slow. I pulled over and realized I had it at 2.
