It is a 194 bulb available at your local parts store. Silvana has one at 1.5 ,but they do come in different wattage's. By the way did you check your fuse?

I'm pretty sure the 83 takes a different bulb than the 81

My '80 takes the little round Bayonet base bulbs, #57. There aren't any #194 wedges in it anywhere.

yes you are right,the 83 lists the #57 in the owners manual I have plenty since the 194s seem to fit better in the wedge socket. Who ever needs the 57s let me know, ship free and the bulbs also.
