Default Shifter illumination

Are the P-R-N-D-1-2-3 on the shifter sonsole supposed to be illuminated, and if they are, is it just a bulb that needs replaced on mine? No lights for the recent memory.

usually there is one bulb that is diffused throughout the "gear pattern" on most other vehicles, unless there is an LED setup, it would just be a matter of pulling it off and changing a bulb

I believe the bulb for 1992-1999 Bonnevilles is 558

CORRECTION: The 558 bulb is ONLY for 1993-1994 Bonnevilles. The technical term is NOT "shifter light" but Automatic Trans. Indicator Light.

Look at the date of posts when you open up a thread, this was back from 2008 and no longer relevant
