Re: Replace light in gear shifter 2004 jeep grand Cherokee

Looks like we are getting closer to a fix for this issue. I would really like to see the end results!!!

Re: Replace light in gear shifter 2004 jeep grand Cherokee

That would be great. This will probably help quite a few people including myself. I wonder if the dimmer control still works.

Re: Replace light in gear shifter 2004 jeep grand Cherokee

OK,so the plan of attack would be; snip the wires at the black box(which would be the inverter?) ,splice in the light strip,and turn it on? That would be great if it was that simple!!

Re: Replace light in gear shifter 2004 jeep grand Cherokee

You can also do your dash lighting (speedometer area), those bulbs are plug and play, I changed mine to blue. If you want to do the lighting behind the heat-a/c controls, take it apart and see of the bulbs are plug and play or soldered. If soldered, you can do the same thing as the shifter lighting.
