Default Floor Shift Lights?

We have a 2000 Bonneville SE, and since we are new owners of it, we dont know if there is suppose to be lights that light up the gear slection next to the floor shift lever, it is an automatic. However, on the dashboard it cleary shows what gear you are in as you shift the lever. So the question is, do the gear selector letters and numbers next to the floor shift suppose to light up also. Ours do not.

Thanks Toastte, Would you know in order to get to the light does the plastic panel that covers the shifter pry up from the back or from the front?

the trim panel pups up fron the rear. after that, you may or may not need to remove it completely to get at the bulb. Removing the panel is a bit more work, and im headed out the door for work, so ill let someone else write it up, or ill do it tonight

Thanks Toast, I hope it comes out without removing the entire panel. Do you know if this is a type of light bulb you can get at the local auto store or is it one of those special type bulbs found in the radio display panel that I have been reading about?

Anyway thanks for the help, and I will let you know how I made out. Going to do this Saturday.

Toast...would that be the bulb in the shifter (you left AGAIN at my place) you were playing with the last time you were over?

If so..I can probably save you guys a trip and take a look at it.
