HELP w/ Gear Shifter Bulb went out on 1998 Prelude Automatic

Have a black auto 98 prelude with about 175,000 miles on it. Recently got a new timing belt, rebuilt trans, new mats, door sils, etc. Had this car since July 1998 and want to keep this as long as possible. I'm starting to fix it up and there are few things I still want to do to keep this car look the same or close to the same as it did 14 years ago. Overall the body is pretty good shape. There is a dent on the drivers side door. Nothing too bad but it annoys me so I think that might the next thing I want to fix. Does anyone know how much you think it will fix? I don't want to buy a new door because it's not going to have the same color plus not sure how hard it is to find the metallic black version. The other thing is the gear shifter bulb. It's out and you have to take apart the whole console to get to the bulb. Had my mechanic try to replace it while he was doing other work but said that there was a short or a bad wire. Not sure what that means and why he wouldn't fix the wire. Long story short, I'm going to bring it to another mechanic to get another opinion but figured I'd ask around on the forum and maybe get some answers and insight. Thanks and appreciate any help with this.
