Send a PM to thedak. I believe that he has figured out how to turn that light on.

Good luck finding someone else. Lots of people say that but never do. I had it done and am pleased. I paid a butt load for shipping but sent it out on a Wednesday afternoon and had it back Friday morning. I insured my shipment and there are only 6 screws to remove your cluster.

BTW, Chris White has done 100's of GTO's including going to GTO events for group buys, etc. Check out his site, he does more than just turning the shift light on... White Auto & Media - Instrument Cluster Programming

Too darn small for my eyes... Wonder if anyone makes a shift light that also has sound? Did some light searching and came-up empty.

That shift light is more of a novelty than it is a necessary feature. You shouldn't need a little light, or chime to tell you when to shift, the sound of the RPM's of the engine is your shift feature. If one is unsure when to shift, that person shouldn't be driving a car like this until they have learned to fully navigate a manual trans. Now, if the driver has a hearing impairment, that's a different story. I do think that if a feature is in the car it should be operable from factory. Personally for me anyway, removing it sending it off to be programed shelling out $$ and reinstalling it is not worth it just to see a light illuminate telling you OK it's time to shift, when you should be watching the road in the first place not the light.
