What L.E.D. Bulbs to replace dash board lights?
« on: January 16, 2020, 05:02:42 PM »
Hi,   Just wanted to know what type L.E.D. Bulbs would be good to replace the light bulbs in the gauge cluster? I wanted to replace the standard bulbs for ones that are brighter. The standard bulbs just arenít bright enough and I was wondering if they are dimmable. Whatís everyone else using?

If you do a search, I believe they now make a direct replacement that will work. Your local parts store might even be able to steer you in the right direction

I also want to say, I remember there being a dimmable version but is relying on memory or it's something I dreamed up  ;D

Does anyone ever dim their lights or just run at brightest setting?

Brightest for me as well, but the odd time, I will dim them when night driving

I haven't done the dashboard lights, but on my other cars I have purchased bulbs from this company and have been very pleased with the result. Yes the LED dash bulbs are dimmable.

The illusion by flickering less.
