A320 Gear Lever and Panel

Stripping down the gear lever you can see it is quite a complex affair.

There is actually a solenoid which locks the gear in the down position until the aircraft is in the air. Surprisingly the gear locked in place when I moved it to the down position with no power supplied.

Back to the drawing board to see how to activate the solenoid, and to get the bulbs functioning.
