Was all done replacing 2 on the left side - plugged in and they worked - bent the bulb a bit to get the lighting brightness correct and ZAP .... all 4 went out. Debating whether I'll just leave them all dead. :-(
Does anyone know if the replacement steering wheel switches come with light bulbs installed? This sounds like a stupid question, but the fact is I am a lousy solderer and I can get the switches for $37 apiece; and there's so much paint missing from the radio switch, this seems like the best option..
A question on the Trip A/B reset switch to replace the light bulb.. The FSM basically tells you to take the instrument panel apart to get at it. I removed the knee bolster, but I cant quite reach the release clip with my fingers to pull the switch out. Is there a way to do this, perhaps with a bent flat blade screwdriver? If anyone has done this I'd like to know how you did it.
I think I was looking for too specific of a bulb. The one that RadioShack used to carry looks either out of stock or entirely unavailable. Amazon had a bulb of a different name that appeared to be identical.
www.radioshack.com/products/radioshack-12v-microlamps-2-pack They're sold out online but I requested a email when they came in stock a few months ago and they did come back in stock. But any similar bulb "2-pack of replacement flashlight and incandescent microlamps. Rated 12V with a current of 60mA"
I got my bulbs on eBay "bulbsandbatteries" Box of 10 #7219 lamp bulbs 12V, 60mA, 072 Watt. took 5 days and cost $10.00. They have the long leads but easy to cut and work great.No Subject 2.eml (707.05 KB)No Subject.eml (812.29 KB)
