The console light bulb is the light bulb located in your center console to provide illumination to help make finding things stored there easier. Most light bulbs are wired with a switch that will turn the light on when the center console is opened, and turn it off when it is closed. The light is useful when searching for items in the dark, such as inside parking structures or during the night. Although the console light bulb is not a component critical to the safety of the vehicle, when it does fail, it will disable this handy feature designed to make the the driving experience easier and more comfortable for the passenger. Usually a failed console light bulb will produce a few symptoms that can alert the driver of an issue that should be serviced.
One of the first symptoms commonly associated with a bad or failing center console light bulb is a dim or flickering bulb. If the filament inside the light bulb becomes damaged or worn over time, it may cause the bulb to light dim, or to flicker when turned on. A dim or flickering light bulb is usually a sign that the bulb is nearing the end of its service life.
Another, more obvious, symptom of a bad or failing console light bulb is one that does not light up. If the bulb burns out due to old age or wear, it will not light up and leave the center console without illumination. At this point replacement of the bulb will be required to restore the light.
The center console light bulb is a useful feature built into many center consoles and helps make the driving experience easier and more comfortable for the passengers. If you suspect that your center console light may be having a problem, or has failed, have the vehicle diagnosed by a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
