If you have the OBC that calculates gas milage and all that, then what you need is the OBC light bar. sells it for about $25, your local dealer will be somewhere around that price too. You should change the keypad bulb while you're at it, as it's only like $1.

I would type a guide up but it's already been done time and time again. Basically you'll be coming at it from the right side of the console (passenger kick area) -- OBC is held in by 4 screws. Remove the screws, pull the OBC, change the light bar, and then put everything back together.

Here's a writeup:
