A/C Control unit bulb replacement (non LED)

I dunno if this has been posted but seems to take care of the burned bulb problem. I know they're not led but seems close if not exactly like stock.

buy a thousand bulbs and get used to doing it. if it burned out an edison bulb once, it will continue to do so.

This video is actually helpful, I may just have to do this. All 3 of my temp control and 2 of my evic control lights are out. Everyone made it out like it was much harder to do.

Just get the ones specified in the video. He recommends ordering from Amazon. In a pinch, I expect you can use the universal Radio Shack 272-1092 bulbs, even tho they are smaller in physical size.

I ended up sending mine out to a guy in CA to fix. I don't know what bulbs he used but the the color and brightness are spot on with the originals (maybe even a hair brighter). I had asked him about the Radio Shack ones and he didn't recommend them.

Once you get it fixed, it is such a nice feeling to turn on your car and see your controls...

Am I the only one thinking that the only difference between doing this for LED's & bulbs is that the guy just used bulbs? Same procedure with LED's?

Yes but you have to add resisters to bring the voltage down to 3v
