My shifter display doesn't light up, wasn't aware they were supposed to? Never had an auto before so assumed you had to learn it like a manual - someone on here should know if the shifter should have a light!!

Aircon and radio lights should light up though. If you follow the instructions on here to remove the facia for changing the head unit you should be able to get it open and look at the bulbs underneath, I assume yours have blown.

Good luck!

Shifter should light up! One of my Elgrand lights up the other doesn't. I believe you have to remove the shifter to get to the bulb behind, Im not too bothered it doesn't light up got use to it now.

Thanks Richard, at least I know! To be honest it hasn't bothered me, you only need to know up, down and middle!!
