?Bulb Size For Cigarette Lighter And A/C Controls?
Does Anyone know the bulb size for the cigarette lighter and A/C control LED? Thxs, because I need to replace them so I can paint them with some Tamiya Transparent Colored Paint.

I bought some 5mm leds for the console and wired them into the cig lighter. They work ok, but the light doesn't difuse as nicely as they do on the stock ones so some parts are left dark. Don't know how I could fix that.

If you guys need some replacement bulbs, I will be buying a new board to replace mine, and I have two extra bulbs.

I'm not sure when I'm going to buy the board, but I would gladly send you my old bulbs (both work great)

The cig lighter bulb can be purchased at any Toyota dealership. The AC controls bulbs are NOT sold separately. You have to buy the entire circuit board.

an easier method is to buy rubber caps and replace the green ones. try any electronic specialist (other than radio shack) in the phone book.

You guys think that if I paint some sort of clear fingernail polish or paint over my blue leds for the AC Console that it would help the light spread better? These lights I bought are ten times brighter than the stock ones yet some dark spots still exist.

Also, I went to my dealer and asked for one of those boards and they said it would be $80 and that they would only sell it to me if I let them install it. Fucking assholes. It would cost me well over $100 now. angry
