I went on an Aurora accessory-bulb-replacement spree the other day. I now have both working registration (rear license plate) bulbs, and a lit center console storage area. And my passenger fog light is still burning strong.
Unfortunately it wasn't all success. Despite my best efforts (removing the inner console well & squeezing my hand blindly under the shifter for about 15 minutes), I finally replaced the blasted gear selection light and it STILL doesn't work! I attribute it to one thing... the previous owner of my Aurora was a TOTAL SLOB! When I got the console out, there was nasty dried coffee and shards of plastic coffee lids *everywhere* down in there. There must have been evidence of twenty cappucinos spilled all over the shifter (who knows how many times over the years), and I'm guessing some of the wiring got wet one too many times. Is there a chance to clean/save that circuit so the light will work, or should I just get used to shifting in the dark?
Heh, Scotty, didja have fun with that shifter...that thing is a PITA
Actually I was able to get to the bulb housing box without removing the shifter. Once I removed the center console storage, I set the parking brake and shifted down into "2" to move the whole assembly closer. Then I could fit my little mouse hands forward and directly underneath the shifter, and was able to manipulate the bulb housing until I figured out how to twist it off with two fingers. THAT part I can do again, but getting the light to actually work might be another problem!
And I managed to drop one of the console screws down into the rear vent opening... I'm not sure if I'll ever see that again!
