Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


I just need a little more info to assist better,

Can you tell me where this gear shift light is out on this vehicle and whether it is the shift gear indicator light or just the back lighting?

Has the vehicle been shutting off while driving or running?

These lights being out like this will not cause the vehicle to stall out at any time.Both of these bulbs should be accessible especially the glove box lamp bulb and replaced.

You can purchase the correct replacement bulb from a GM dealer to fit into place for replacement.
