I'm confused. Are you talking about an aftermarket shift light or is there something built in to the dash that I havent' noticed?

Yeah, on the dash, just below and to the right of the 7 on the tach there is a little dark circle (about 1/4" in diameter). I'm pretty sure that on the GTO promo vid that was online last year it was a shift light...

not real sure about this, BUT, seems like I remember that when I bumped the rev limiter once, that some sort of light came on in the dash; this could be it. If anyone nuts enough to just go out and give it a shot, please re-post the results. Many folks here more knowledgable than I on this.

I had a light yesterday that seemed like a shift light come on between 5000 and 5500 RPMs. This one is above and between the temp gauge and the tach. It was green and did not stay on long. I could not get it to come back on... yet.

I kinda perfer it with the shift light off as is, most new stick cars that shift light comes on way too soon like 2200rpm or so. In a saturn it seams like shift light is always on.

I have hit the rev limiter a bunch of times. I never saw any kind of light. Then again, I wasn't paying attention to the tach or I wouldn't have hit the rev limiter in the first place.

I have HP Tuner software and I do not recall any way to enable or disable a "tach light."

i tried to get it to work with ls1 edit but it wouldt work sorry
As a wild stab, i would suggest that you might also need a bulb in the hole to light it up :)... anyone daring enough to check and see if there is anything in that spot to be lit up and if not buy the part and then do the ls1edit as well?

With the work computer, I cannot download anything, but....If you go to the appearance section, search for the "lights" post and scroll down, MLC posted a gauge cluster that is showing the lights. Maybe someone can check that out to see if there is a light there..I cannot zoom with these computers..
