Does anyone make a plug in line digital gear indicator for a 1996 1500SE, my old one quit working and can't find a name on it. Thanks for any help

I love some of the solutions here. However, I was thinking that if I did not care about the 1st gear indication, the circuit would be real simple. Just the 5 LED's, 1 for N, then 2,3,4,5(OD). I would know that I am not in any other gear, so I must be in 1st. I would not need a 7 segment, just simple LED's with a number above or below it. Different color LED for each gear.
Any thoughts?

If restricted to 5 LEDs, I'd be more inclined to make it one LED per gear, i.e. 1-2-3-4-5, and no LED for N. It seems more intuitive.

My reason for this was that there is no output for the 1st position. You only get a N,2,3,4,5 output. So, if non of the lights are on, it must be in first. The limit was not 5 LED's, but only 5 outputs.
