    Hello All,

    I have a quick question for you. Recently I noticed that Farthest most right dial on my AC panel was not illuminated anymore.

    This section here.
    20140506_181955_zpsc95b128f_5692f8f3dfe654ec8231bd8d8bcfc8e065b3a47e.jpg

    I didn't notice that there was any dimming on the center Dial.

    So I pulled it out today to take a look at it and all I see for a light in that area is this.

    I pulled this bulled from that hole.

    Is that the Bulb that I need to replace and if so can I get that bulb from autozone or is that a dealer specific bulb. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure I had to get mine from the dealer when mine went out. This was years ago though, so places like autozone may stock them now

    Dealer I believe. part#84999-10090. The one on the left of my controls keeps going out. I replaced it once, and about a month later, IT went out again. Time for some Flyzeye's.

    The light is distributed via plastic light pipes, left bulb doesn't always mean left side is dark but in your case I think you're right. These bulbs are a ridiculous $8-$10 each!

    Can you buy these bulbs from anywhere besides the dealer? Because it cost $10 a piece. That is highway robbery!

    Hey once you get to the superbrightleds.com web page just type in the search box "dashboard led lights". Light bulb you are looking for should be a NEO3, NEO4, or NEO5. They have a picture of each and the measurements for each bulb. There shipping was pretty quick.
