I had the same problem in my 03 SE-R, so I know exactly what you mean. Yes, it's only the bulb, and it's a pain to replace. I waited about 6 months before tackling the job. You have to "pop" up the shifter surround (the part with the PRND21 on it), and hope you don't scratch anything in the process. Then loosen the plastic shroud that surrounds the whole assembly. You'll have to take out a few screws, if I remember right. Then comes the hard part. You'll have to prop up the whole assembly as high as you can, and then with some really long and slender fingers, reach under the assembly from the drivers' side, and remove the (tiny) bulb. Putting the new one in is not much easier. . Good luck.

The shift lock solenoid is located on top of the steering column. You will need to remove the steering column covers, lower dash trim, and the heater duct. Remove the steering column bolts and lower the steering column to access the shift lock solenoid.

Usually on steering column lower if column shift, next to floor shift (remove panels) if floor shift or at transmission integrated with reverse light switch

Most shift solenoids are inside the transmission.

If a 1995 Nissan Sentra will not shift out of first, there could be a problem with the throttle valve cable. The transmission could also be damaged.

First the bezel/shift assembly trim should be removed or put aside. This will allow access to the shift column to be unbolted from its housing.Ê
