For the HVAC, looking at it... If it's not an inverted LED, I don't think it will dispurse the light evenly through the face.
Tekno said it didn't work well when he tried it, but you'll have to ask him for more info on that cause I didn't try it. (I don't know which type of LED he tried.)

It is possible to use a 194 bulb... So when I get the LEDs for my guages, I'm going to get a few extra for my HVAC cause using the standard 194 bulbs makes too much heat in the HVAC and the LED emits less heat.

How are the LED bulbs? Do they light well? Pics?

I'm still debating about it, cause can't seem to decide to order it online or buy it locally... Price wise it almost comes out to the same due to the currency exchange and S&H.

Cool, take pics and post them after you get them in.

When two of my gauge bulbs burnt out, I just replaced them with coloured bulbs and the colour is find but it's starting to fade. It's ok though. hahaha

I don't know what size the bulbs are for the turn signal blinker in the dash pod, but if you plan on replacing it with coloured bulbs/LEDs... I don't think it would work cause the thing that makes it green is the plastic sheet infront of the bulb.

But if they are the same size as the HVAC bulbs, I was told it was size 74.

Huh? Didn't you say you got LEDs?

For a B14, I don't think the Hazard "Button" (if that's what you are talking about) has a bulb in it. Don't know the size of the Defrost "Button" bulb.

Not sure all the wattage information offered above is correct. 158, 168, 194, and others will plug into the same outlet, but will offer different amount of light. The guy that posted here: http://www.theherd.com/articles/bulbs.html seems to have done some homework.

Good luck. Don't melt stuff by using too high wattage bulb -- just because it fits, doesn't mean it's right. But if it solves a problem, go for it.

well when the led's were added, did you hook them up in parallel, because i think that whenever you add a parallel circuit, you increase the amperage, thus creating more heat and burning stuff, otherwise if you just replace the bulb or hook up in series, it won't be as bad..........
You do have the right idea. A parallel circuit creates less resistance amongst the resistors (light bulbs) and more amps are passed through the circuit. Having the bulbs in a series is safer, but the extra resistance may cause the bulbs to not be as bright as they could be. But it isn't all about amps, but watts. Watts are a unit of power which is work/time. If more work is done over the given time that the circuit can handle you get a melt down.

Yeah, but where the hell can we buy these? All they say on them is 77, and no store has'em. I'm thinking of just wiring up led's in there, stick a 3mm led in that white rubber crap.. would fit perfect...
