Cluster bulbs, the tiny expensive ones.
1 Attachment(s)
So after searching i discovered the bulbs separate from the sockets. I plan to try and source out some bulbs because mopar wants 21$ a piece and I need 4.

What I really want to know is can I drop an led in the socket?

The bulb your looking at goes behind the headlight switch it has a grey base and says 14V, 1.4 watt.

LED needs current limiting resistor installed in series... observe proper polarity.

Check, I think they have them rated at 14v.

Usually bulbs can be purchased by the box on ebay for a fraction of the retail cost elsewhere. Like $4 for a box of 10.

I don't buy bulbs locally any more

Here is a list for my 96 ZJ buy them once and never worry about it. This is Super Bright Leds they stay cool burn longer and just plain are better all around.

xcaliber81 03-17-2013 02:04 PM

xcaliber81 03-17-2013 02:33 PM

I cant find anything on the cluster bulb type or how many there are in the FSM.

Big thread... HERE

xcaliber81 03-17-2013 04:56 PM

That's for 96 and up though aren't they different? And the T13 x6 I could not find on superbrightleds

xcaliber81 03-18-2013 10:26 AM

So super bright leds is calling for 194 in the rear of the cluster is that correct?

coralman 03-18-2013 11:29 AM

I think thats it. You may want to check Ebay as well cause they have deals on some sizes.

xcaliber81 03-18-2013 12:27 PM

Sweet yea they are 6.95$ each for the 194. But only 12$ for shipping. So just 5 in the cluster right? the guy on that link ordered 7 but I think 2 were for the shifters

So I was ably to grab some hvac lights from a cherokee but since the housings were 1 step smaller I removed the bulbs and put them in the right size housings and I got my hvac to finally light up. And I took out my vic thingy ,not the vicbut 1 step down and i was able to get the tires to light up properly and the part time to finally work however when I shift to lo it remains on part time and lo wont light up no matter what bulb I put in there what could that be?.

The time now is 01:56 AM.
