djm1k0 is an unknown quantity at this point
ok i have a 99 323i automatic, i don't know what the part is called but i beleive it is called the gear selector cover, you know where you would shift from park to drive or nuetral etc.... well there are lights on that cover that indicate what gear your in and so on. any ways i don't know why but all the lights will light up or lets say i could be in drive but the park light is lit, ...... does anyone know how to fix it and if it needs to be replaced how do i get that part over the shifter. and what is the part called ????


any help would be greatly appreciated...

sounds like you need to replace that piece i had some work done on my car and dealer broke that part when the put it back it would say i was in neutral or reverse when i was in drive. I have taken it apart several times. you have to remove the leather shift knob first by shifting down to drive or 3 gear squeeze knob in and pull up hard on knob dont knock yourself out doing this after that try slightly push back from the area where the 1 gear number is slider then pull up carefully should pop out there will be a wire attached to it thats were it lights up during the night when your lights are on. I dont know how much that part is sorry. Hope this helps

sounds like you need to replace shifter unit console. I think the light is part of the unit shifter console name used not sure exact name. this part is a common thing that will break or malfunction its easy to replace.
