Default PRND321 lights

I did some searching for other threads onn this topic and were too old so I started my own thread. I pulled my console up and back out of the way and found the black wire was cut . I figured out that the edges in the plastic where the wires slide around in there were so sharp it wore through the black wire and cut it. The bulb was good and worked again after I hooked it back up. Heres a pic of it back together. Name:  100_0026.jpg

Also the 7 wires you see going up to the indicator I believe are fiber optics

Nope, fiber optics!! they didt work until I fixed that wire and this little wedge bulb was there. Sorry for the crappy pics, but you get the idea!

I can't even make out those pics But I know what you did because I had the same problem a couple months ago. I went into my console and found a wire wasn't really cut, but it was pulled out of the connector, so I just put it back in the connector and squeezed it tight so it wouldn't fall out again. It'* one of those little things that you fix that makes you smile

BTW, I'm pretty sure that bulb is a 194...pretty common, but not found in the doors.

Yes I know the pics suck, but I figured I'd post them anyways just to give y'all the general idea of what I did.

it is a 194, but its special. it has a magnifying end on the bulb... on my ol d92 SSESC i thought mine was burned out, but also ended up only being the broken wire. i tried to replace the bulb first, but no one carried the bulb with the magnifying tip on it
