I read the PDF by Mike Polenske on console light repair. Is this lighting only available on automatics, special option, or just specific years? Would very much appreciate an explanation...Clivey
The article on how to repair the console lights that I wrote quite some time ago is for the repair of the lights around the shifter, it pertains to all SSRs, manual and automatic.I read the PDF by Mike Polenske on console light repair.

Yes Dicktator, I already looked at Mikes tutorial. He was working on an auto "R", I'm going to have to do a little more investigating as I have yet to figure out how to get the chrome shifter ball off, the rest seems relatively easy to follow. I'm beginning to realize that a proper shop manual is probably the first thing to acquire and that will show me which fuse to pull before starting any of the work. Thanx for your assistance, your Canucklhead fan.... CliveyThe information you are looking for is on my SSR How to Library:
Look up CONSOLE LAMP FIX by Mike aka Dragon2U
Well, lets clarify a few things here........I probably would have found it, but thanx for the info. Now I'm getting excited about the area around the shifter illuminated at night. like I said earlier, I had no idea mood lighting existed.....Cool.
THANKS. Ha! I thought all '04's, (Kathy's), were just made to have the Amber light Glow all the time at night to slightly illuminate the interior. :crazy Always learn something from Y'all!! Too lazy to read the book!!! Hmmm I may turn them on in my FRP!?Well, lets clarify a few things here........
Mood lighting - This option was offered only on the upper level option group, the ones with the Homelink remotes built into the mirror. With this option, there is a set of pulse width controlled LEDs under the rearview mirror that offer mood or theater lighting as well as map lights. Mood lighting can be turned on and off, when on, it produces a light amber effect at night while driving down the road to illuminate the shifter and surrounding area. It is controlled by pressing the far right button for a few seconds to change modes. Pressing the button quickly just turns on and off the map light option which is the same LEDs turned on at a brighter output.
