It is located under the center console lid. To change put the key forward, not starting the vehicle and slide the gear select in the lowest possible gear. This should be 1 on an auto, some older models equiped with 2.73 gear sets have consoles begining in 2. After the gear select is in the lowest setting, you will see a U shaped clip holding the T handle shifter. Use a flat blade screw driver and gently pry the clip out. Place it some where safe, after this pull up on the T handle and shifter should come off. Your now read to remove the console lid. The lid pops in place, open up your storage lid and pulling forward and up remove the center console lid. Now on the under side you should see a plug and two wires, thats your console light. Simply twist and it should come free from the bottom of the gear select lid. After this you should see the buld in the socket When you get ready to put every thing b ack together with your finder, slide the gear select in the lowest setting. Angle it downward and slide the opening in the shifter area over the shifter assembly. Neil350

Why can't you shift out of park in a 1997 Pontiac firebird?

If you step on the brake and it will still not come out of park. Your brake interlock is probably bad. It is under the console and you can get it at advance auto for around 20 bucks.

Where is the automatic transmission gears console light bulb and how do you change it on a 1991 Pontiac Firebird?

The bulb is located to the rear(back near the #1) underneath the console plate. It is a smaller bulb like a #194. You do not have to remove the shift handle. Take out the ashtray, and carefully pry up along the edges of the plate. It is held in place by tabs that fit into the console. You'll be able to lift it high enough to see the wire to the bulb connected to the underneath of the gear indicator, twist the bulb housing and pull off, take old bulb out by pulling it straight out and replace. Assembling is the reverse of the above steps.
