Ok, So i'm looking to do some LED mods, anyone knows where i could find the sizes of all the bulbs in the car including interior dome bulbs, DRLs, fender turn signals and the tail lights.
and if you have experience with led mods do you know what resestor i should get so i don't trip the "bulb malfunction warning"?

Thanks in advance :)

From the full owners manual on the DVD:

REPLACEMENT BULBS

Interior Lights Bulb Type
Overhead Lamp C5W
Courtesy Lamp W5W

Exterior Lights Bulb Type
Front Low and High Beam Headlamp HIR2
Front Parking/Daytime Running Lamps W21/5W
Front Fog Lamps H11
Front Side Marker Lamps W3W
Front Turn Signal Lamps WY21W
Side Direction Lamps W5W
Rear Turn Signal Lamps PY21W
Rear Side Marker Lamps W3W
Rear Tail and Stop Lamps P21W/5W
Rear Backup Lamps W16W
License Plate Lamps LED (See Authorized Dealer)


The manual has guides on replacing all the exterior lights, but nothing for interior ones. :(

Good question. I didn't even notice that. Is there a lamp in either of the visors? How about the glove box? oohh... I think there's one in the trunk. Yeah, I bet that's it. The trunk light. :)

And I guess regular bulb sizes are different than led, cuz I was on DDM site and couldn't find any bulbs that said w5w or so.

Sent from my Thunderbolt.

so, is there like an halogen/LED converter chart :p
since im looking to change most of the bulbs, rear plate, interior, side turn signals, and the DRLs

I just cross-referenced them and came across that, the last one listed...

194 Wedge Flat LED Light. 1 LED. Durable, shock and vibration proof, instant On/Off. Monochromatic (pure) color, low heat generation, virtually unbreakable. Available in super white, red, yellow, green, blue and violet. 12 VDC. Replaces 194 T10 T-10 147 152 158 159 161 168 184 192 193 194 #194 259 280 285 447 464 555 558 585 655 656 657 1250 1251 1252 2450 2652 2921 2825 12256 12961 2521 2525 W5W.


Probably just Google each one if you find the time.
