Bezel Light??

Hello, I am new here and hope I can figure out whats wrong with my lights. I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2009. Last night my shift bezel light was really dim and flickering. I hope I am using the right terms. I am meaning the actually letters by the sfifter, PRNDL letters that illuminate at night, were very dim and flickering. Hope this clarifies what I am talking about. Does anyone know what would cause that???? Thanks for any info!!

Re: Bezel Light??

its all about multi tasking bro.........so now you can see why i freak out at these wk2 guys and the level of detail they need to make a buy.

I went house shopping; realtor says 'so Robert, what kind of house you looking for?' I reply "john, I need a 2 car garage minimum." he says "no no; bedrooms and bathrooms?" "oh, one of each is good."


I dont look down there to see what gear Im in......like my grandmother, who looks down to shift from reverse to d.

Re: Bezel Light??

HEY OP:

i took my spare one apart. its lit up by 3 LEDs that transmit light to a plastic piece that distributes the light to the 6 spots.

here is the pice with that distributes the light

there are 3 leds in the circles





so either you got a led out or further problems.
