A/C bulb LED?

How do I remove the a/c bulbs for the dash in order to replace them with an LED? What kind of LED to I get from RadioShack? I need the voltage and milli amps to compute the resistance so I don't burn out the LED.

wave kiss Welcome to EverythingCELICA.com all the answers you're looking for are here, just surf a little bit more... happywink

There's not replacement for those bulbs. frown

If you want to change the color to red use bulb covers or use film
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_128133_0_collapsed_2__1.html
If you're looking for blue go with neon tube
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1869870766_0_collapsed_2__1.html

But if your problem is a bulb, you may need to get a new complete A/C board (I guess around $100), and replace it is a bitch ohboy

i just replaced mine wiht a blue led (it already came with the resistor on it) you can get them just about any place (mine came from best buy, 4 for $15). the others i want to use for my heat/ac controls. and to replace the bulbs that are in my oil, water temp, and volt meter, because those look more orange then red.
