Electrical problem on my 2000 Mustang

When i got in my 2000 Mustang today i noticed that the backlight for the shifter ( the one that lights up P R and D for when shifting) it all of a sudden was out. I checked a few fuses and it didnt look like any of them are blown. Anyone have any other ideas whats wrong or maybe the fuse for that backlight is under a different name on the legend for the fuse box? Will Appreciate the feedback

I'd like to know how to get to bulb? My wife's 03 has the light working, but the orange selector is missing. I've had the radio bezel off and the bezel around the shifter, but I can't figure out how to get the shifter apart!

Yeah same problem. Never really thought about that before. It would make sense the bulb went out it hasn't been changed in 11 years. Anyone have instructions how to get to it I have an automatic
