need new bulb...

ok guys, when you take the center console out there are two green bulbs for where the a/c conrolers are. Well one of mine burned out where can i get a bulb like it? does anyone know? i tired the dealership and they want me to get the whole console it makes no sence. There is a picture of what bulbs i'm talking about. Do not mind the red film i just could not find another better picture but there is where the bulbs there i'm talking about are located. Please anyone help.

None of the bulbs they have at walmart or anything will fit. Yes, it is insane to buy a new centerpiece. You might can wire a differnt sized bulb in there (they all run off 12v). Or consider just putting in some red LEDs.
BTW, you car is NICE.

this bulb is not a bulb at all. It's an LED. Toyota won't sell the part by itself, you have to buy the whole board. I've tried some aftermarket LEDs but can't find a match. It's made to look like a bulb but it's an LED in a housing that screws into the board. What yu can do is wire in some neon wire lights back there. Unless of course you want to pay toyota $80 for the whole circuit board, or keep trying LEDs to make it work... but I've tried quiet a few with no success. Sorry, you're shit outta luck with this one thumbsdown I was pissed at Toyota for a month about this.

nope, been tried. Looks convincing though huh? That's the problem it's designed just like the rest of the bulbs in the car. But this is an LED. If you look at the circuit board it is actually labeled "LeD 1" and "LED 2".

ya you can replace them, you take the old led out by untwisting the prongs, then if you look through the plastic peice you will see two holes (i guess and checked cause i didnt know which one was postive of negative) put the new led prongs through either hold and twist them around like the stock ones, but dont cut them just yet... screw it back into the board and see if it lights up...

the only problem i had was finding the right voltage, get one of each, but not too low cause you know that wont work... and it will blow right away, i put in the red/wide angle at first but they really arent as good as the stock ones (not as bright) plus film and it looks ok... i dont remember the voltage on the ones i got though... maybe 3.6 with the resistor or 5volt
