Great info. My 87 glove box light is a plug in bulb not a socket like the 1895. Any more info? Again, great find.

What about the bulb for the glove box on 87. I see every list stating 1895 but mine is a plug in. Everyone else?

Great Idea, I'll give it a shot and create a bulb kit and get the price and see if it sells.
Thanks for posting this 83.

That is a great list. Why can't the owners manual be so simple?
A bulb kit is a great idea, but supply maybe 2-4 bulbs per component in the higher failure areas, or upgraded versions like LEDs.

i have a better idea... Some person from china sells led bulbs for every part of our car. I'll get the URL.

by the way i did a complete conversion of every light bulb in my car from them. tailights,brake light,dash lights, interior lights,turn signals, side markers. Everything!

under $40.00

168, 194 or 2825

they're all the same base, the only difference is the output. the factory 168 are only about 38 Lumens, the 194's are 25 lumens, but the 2825 are the brightest at 50 lumens.

I thought I'd chime in on this thread with my LED lighting experience. After researching the LED light options, I decided to splurge on Sylvania bulbs for the dash after seeing some other people's experience with the cheaper kind burning out a lot. You can buy the high-end Sylvania bulbs for the dash and rear license area here:

http://www.amazon.com/SYLVANIA-2825-Premium-White-Miniature/dp/B00AIJY2ZM

Here is a photo of my dash lit up at night, no assistance from street lights or otherwise. My signature has a photo of the license area under the same conditions.



(And incase someone is judging my mileage - it's a Canadian car so that's km's on the odometer and it's been around once; I replaced the face from an El Camino in a US junkyard when I relocated)

That one dead area in the gear indicator area is somewhat unavoidable due to the bulky indicator mechanism blocking even the brightest light almost completely. Still, never imagined my dash could be so brilliant.

Close to $100 in premium LED lightbulbs to do the dash and license area. The cheap bulbs with the multiple "light pads" on them might work for a time, though from what I hear, they're going to burn out on you in short order.

I hope this is useful info for someone!

You can go to the Album using the link at the top of this(or any) page and in the Search box type in Lamp Bulb Specifications to view every original bulb requirement.
The page I posted there is from my original 'Owner's Manual'.

I did this with worse result. I did see someone suggested spraying the plastic piece that goes around the bulbs with silver or reflective to make the light bounce off better. Good write up by the way.

This list is a BIG help.
I'm doing some upgrades to my '79. Had more than a few folks mention that my brake lights are not the easiest to see during the dayight. I used this post & Rockauto as a guide. Figured I'd replace most of the bulbs around the outside outside and the instrument panel ones as well as they are mostly original and, in the case of the instrument panel, some are burn't out too. Some of my PNs differ from the list, but I figure that is normal with mine being a 3rd gen. I have the OEM PN as well as what RockAuto calls "Maximum Brightness" listed below. Most of the Max Brightness are the PHILIPS CrystalVision series. Thought about LED, but that gets a tad pricey. 3 questions.

  • Do I have accurate OEM and Max Bright PNs?
  • How many of each do I need?
  • Am I missing any that I SHOULD upgrade?
  • Is there a PN for upgrading the engine compartment light socket? The internal mercury switch crapped out on mine, so I ditched it.
  • Any downside in going to the "Maximum Brightness" Bulbs?
  • If memory serves, the 1157 Brake light bulb does the rear turn signal as well?




Thanks in advance,
Russ

Has anyone tried either of the two bulbs: Philips 1157 P21/5W Red X-tremeVision LED Exterior
https://www.amazon.com/Philips-1157-X-tremeVision-Exterior-light/dp/B00HWS7XGW

or SYLVANIA ZEVO 2057 Red LED Bulb https://www.amazon.com/SYLVANIA-ZEVO-205...s=zevo+2057+red

I would like to use one of these but I know on the Zevo I couldn't get the bulb to go far enough into the socket to reach the locking mechanize.

Any suggests and/or ideas?

These are for the rear brake/turn signals.
