Backlight for Climate controls
Anyone know where I can get a replacement bulb for the climate control backlight. The dealership's i've called tell me I would have to order the whole A/C control board to get the lights. I have looked at the light and can't see any bulb number or anything to try to replace it with something else. If anyone has any info on either a replacement bulb or the buld number, I would greatly appricate it.

Thanks.

-Ben

nopes I had them go out...and few others too...sorry bro they are not just bulb, they are a whole circuit board...which you have to get at the toyota dealership...gonna cost you a bunch...i say, you put a replacement, such as a neon or something.

You can get the bulbs if you go to a dealer and ask them for it.

There is no part number, but sometimes they have them in stock for other applications.


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

I got mine from a car salvage yard when mine went out. It costed me 5 cents. Call around and look for a wrecked celica, you can get parts very cheap. Hope that helps U. thumbsup

BUMP smile

FYI - This mod can also be done even if your stock lighting is still installed and working just fine - it will change the color of your center climate controls to either BLUE/RED/GREEN or WHITE - and can be removed at a later date if you decide to

install pictures and such should be up this weekend - Im planning on redoing my install from last week - again tonight... Just so pictures & guide can be posted

Remember when I told of few of you that I broke my A/C circuit board trying to acetate the bulbs. I need a new one. Is it gonna cost like $70. You think I could DIY with a little help? I'm so fucked, aren't I? cry

If nothing on the board works, bite the bullet and buy a new one. If just the lights don't work, then wait for Isaac's guide.


I'm also in the process of making a guide.

I bought a few different light sources today, and am going to install them tomorrow.
