Hey im wonderin is there anyway to test led lights with like any household things. What i mean is like when u want to test speakers you can take a 9 volt battery and such. The reason i ask is cuz i have the led for the transmission light but i want to know it works before removing the center console.

Buy a brand new LED bulb and then you're assured that it's OK. They don't cost much. If you want to test the auto. overdrive switch, check the "AT" section of Nissan's 300ZX Service Manual. I think the switch can be tested by using a volt meter or ammeter.

By the way, the LED light in my auto. OD switch burned out years ago but it still shifts into and out of OD so I haven't done anything about it. As long as the switch works, that's all that matters. You can hear the car shifting into OD. You don't need a LED light to tell you that. It'll require a lot of work to remove the switch and it isn't worth it just to replace that LED bulb. Wait for the OD switch to become defective and then replace it.

A garden-variety $2 multilmeter is quite adequate to test the continuity in an incandescent globe.
Such a multimeter would even be sufficient to see if there is actually voltage in the socket for the globe.
