I assume you are referring to the coolant temp sensor. as you look at the front pulleys of the engine, its on the right side behind a bracket just above the alternator. See picture below and let me know if you have questions. If you are referring to the coolant level sensor, it would be on the side of the coolant reservoir.

Hi gj,

It's easy and you won't need a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • For putting the belt on: Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
First
make sure the fuse is good.
If the fuse is good then remove the screws holding the center console cover. You will need a long and short phillip screwdriver. Look for screws in the cup holder, under the handbrake handle and where the console runs under the dash. You may have to move seats forward/backward to reach the screws. When you attempt to raise the console cover you will notice you overlook a screws. Remove them also. You may be able to reach the bulb without removing the gear shift handle. DO NOT TOUCH any other electronics you see. The AIRBAG ACTUATOR is located here also. Replace bulb. Test before reassembly. Good Saturday morning project.
