There are no lights there, the only lights are on the dashboard to indicate what gear you're in. Very cheap of Acura not to have the gear indicator light up by the shifter.mooch said:I have a 2002 MDX Touring and the gear shift light on the center console (lights up R, P, D, N, etc.) is burned out. Does anyone know how to go about changing this light bulb or should I make to 50 mile trip to the Acura garage?
Are you talking about the meter area where the speedometer, fuel, temp. etc. are located, or the gear shift stick area?mooch said:I have a 2002 MDX Touring and the gear shift light on the center console (lights up R, P, D, N, etc.) is burned out.

As removing center console easy, grab the plood ( plastic wood trim) on the underside toward the cup holder ( you can remove the cup holder by pulling straight up. Then SLOWLY go around both sides follow the trim and pull straight up you can use popsicle stick or other non-marring object to wedge under. Work towards the front of the trim then remove completly by unplugging the heat seater switches. The light bulb is on the left side. Remove, replace bulb and reverse the removal. this is a great time to clean the edges of the trim and center console of crumbs and dirt.
Just order it from Tim, I found out that Tim has any part from 20 to 25% less than any dealer. I buy all the hard to find bulbs from him, I got mine for about 6 bucks as opposed to 9-12 from the dealer.RudeJoe said:Thanks I found that out a little earlier today. Now to find a replacement bulb. I called the local auto parts store and they thought it might be a GE 37 bulb. But I went to get one and found out it was slightly larger and would not fit into the socket. Hopefully the Honda dealer will have one because the Acura dealer is over an hour's drive away.
