My OD light also works intermittently because of a broken wire off shift lever. I cant get the upper shroud off because the ignition or key cylinder holds it from being removed. Any suggestions? Thanks.
I'm pretty sure you just have to pull the shroud out over the key assembly to get the shroud off. I did mine 5 years ago, so I don't 100% remember if that's what I did or whether I pulled the key switch assembly out before I removed the shroud.

Turn the key to the run position. If the lower cover is still in place there is a hole side of one of the mounting screws under the lock cylinder. Take a small screw driver or ice pick and push it up into the hole. There is a button on the lock cylinder that must be pushed to release the cylinder. Once the button is pushed just pull the cylinder out. If the bottom cover is off you should be able to see the button under the ignition lock cylinder.
