At the bottom of the steering column shroud, there should be a silver metal clip, which has a string tied to it. The other end is connected to the shifter up in the column. Move it to align the indicator on the instrument cluster. Be careful not to pull it too tight in that it may break. I learned the hard way.

I have a 94 Pontiac Grand AM SE and replacing the bulb on gear shift is difficult. The whole panel that the gear shift sits on can be remove. First pull the pin out from the shift knob its located in the front of the knob just above the metal rod it sits on. Then pull out the knob. After that just pry out the panel carefully at the sides, starting from the cigarette lighter up to where the switch is to adjust the mirror. Disconnect the wire from the cigarette lighter, gear shift and the switch that adjust the mirrors. The bulb is on a circuit that is one with the gear shift indicators.

If I'm not mistaken, it appears that your truck is a "manual transmission"? There would be no indicator light - you shift into first gear, and then as you approve about 10 or 15 mph you would shift to second. I recommend the "learning manual transmission for dummies" - actually a very well written instruction book on learning how to shift.

there is contacts in behind the buttons sometimes they touch causing it to stay in the gear just pull it away with screwdriver so it dont touch
