Cruise control indicator lights

Postby bobz3927 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 5:10 pm



My cruise control works just fine on my 1995 1500 A. however the indicator light "cruise on" does not come on. Is the LCD unit replaceable to illuminate that indicator on the dashboard? Bobz3927

The best thing to do is pick up a full box of 194 bulbs and once you get into the dash replace all of the 194 bulbs you come across as most are ready to burn out anyway. You will be surprised how many are burt but you didnt realize it untill you get it back together a take a ride at night.

Or just replace them all with LEDs like I did and wrote about, and never worry about any of them burning out ever again. :)

Not to mention that the LED's give a "richer" colour to the lights, and are in my opinion easier on the eyes if not on the wallet,besides you really dont want to have to go that far into the dash more than once if you can help it 8-)

You are also correct Bustedwing, the stock bulbs are in fact 194's and will work just fine. Some of us just like the LED's so much better. It maybe a hold over from my days with the 1100,where I was always looking for a way to save a few watts 8-)

The main thought was to change as many as possible while in there because you dont want to have to rip into it again due to one or two bulbs somewhere else burnt out.
