Shifter PRND illuminating amber light doesnt go on after changing center console :(

I changed my center console today to the one with a arm rest. did every thing correctly.

and than after i was done bam, noticed that the little amber illuminating light doesn't go on anymore (little square that lights up amber beside each PRND)

however, the funny thing is it goes on in Sport/Shiftronic mode.

i checked the back everything is plugged in.
please help

Sure you didn't sever a wire?

Maybe just never mind it and consider this:

I believe there are two wires that must be plugged in on the shifter plate. Sitting in the car when you lift it up there is a plug on the driver side of it and another one on the passenger side of it. When I replaced mine I forgot to plug in the one on the passenger side. So check to make sure you did not forget one of the wires as well. pretty sure that's what it is. let me know.
