another dash light question

Postby kycycles » Tue Nov 23, 2010 12:11 pm



two of the 12v 3 w bulbs are supposed to have a green cap on them(for color) where or what can i do to make this happen. it is discontinued from honda

also, i have two bulbs on the top of the gauge that are different than the rest. they are much smaller and simply have two little wires hanging off the bottom. I cannot find this bulb on the fich. what is it and where can i get it?

I've had luck painting bulbs to get the desired color, might try that. just cover the contacts so you don't get paint on them. As for the other, smaller bulbs, did someone maybe try putting LEDs in there at some point? Maybe couldn't figure out how to make them work but thought they looked OK anyway....

I think I would try replacing them with LEDs, just to prevent me from having to replace them again, ever.

i actually found some NOS bulbs to replace the two smaller ones. the are sold as a bulb and socket. now i just need to figure out the green cap. ill go down to the auto parts store and see if they offer anything. i actually have one green cap and the old bulb, but need one more
