Default LED Lights All Around

Hey everyone,

Just want to swap all my bulbs out with LED's and want to order all i need and do it all at once, just a couple areas i dont know how many i need or what type.

Dash Lights Need to be 194's, but how many do i need?

A/c Control area is a 74, I need 1? or 2?

The cab light in the back is just a fetsoon bulb?

What about the two front upper lights are those fetsoon also?

and the Automatic Shifter Bulb what type is that?i would assume there is only 1

lastly the ash tray and glove? if im missing any lights let me know.

thank you

Check out my build thread, there are pictures of the bulbs I used, links, and info.

The A/C is a 74, just one. Cab is Fetsoon, but you have to get the right size. It's the shortest one, but I don't recall the size - 10mm? I dunno, it's in my build.

Front map lights I could not find in LED. I replaced with a flat LED panel and hard wired. See build thread again...

Glove box is a 194 and the ash tray is a tiny one, mine is still stock.

My bad, I did I LED swap a bit ago on dash and ac.
Dash you only need 4 t10 (194) led's, color of your choice for the backlighting of it, If you want to swap the other lights on the dash (turn signals, check engine etc.) i believe they are t5's and if you want a count on those, i can check for you.
The interior light( on my 96, the light that turns on when the door is open, right above driver's head) is a 31mm festoon bulb. The a/c control is only one bulb. Not too sure on the rest of them

I pulled my cluster out of a pathy (because i wanted a tach) and did an led swap as well and my abs light is always on now. But I don't believe my 96 4cyl has abs??

Do you have an ABS box under your driver seat? I have an ABS light in my cluster but don't have ABS, but my light only comes on during the bulb check

I really need to get around to doing the LED swap myself, my gauges are pretty pathetic at night
