Sounds like the shifter cable is out of adjustment. Put it in neutral, with the ignition on. Do they light up? If so, shifter cable needs adjustment. If not, leave the key on and starting from park slowly move the shifter through all the selections. P, R, N, etc. If the reverse lights come on at anyttime, same thing. Shifter cable is out of adjustment. HTH. -Jim

How do I adjust that if it is


When you move the shifter you'll see, in the engine compartment, a cable attached to a lever that will move. You'll need to loosen the cable where it attaches put the lever all the way to it's stop. Make sure the shifter is in park then tighten down the cable. HTH. -Jim
