'02 Instrument Cluster LED#?

I got a reference to a type 194 LED replacement somewhere here about a year ago, got some put 'em on the shelf, time passed etc.

Finally went to put these in and they are way too big.

Anyone got a good p/n# and or link to correct item?

I don't like the way my instrument lamps dim every time my blinkers blink... (I know annoyed by petty B.S. what can I say?)

AND if you can use some superbright white type 194 LEDs for your earlier type gauge cluster PM me as I have 10 I don't need. Free to first requester. They appear to have steering diodes in the base so polarity is no issue.

194 is for the older cluster you need type 74 for the newer style with digital section.

But be aware.. the bulb shines through a red plastic gauge front.. I found the aftermarket lights did little to nothing in aiding visibility.. Unlike the GREAT advantage they had in my 1998 cluster.

Adding a top mounted light was how I addressed the problem.. see thread linked

I have not seen or used any of the 194 style that were not polarity sensitive, but either way it's pretty simple. install, plug in cluster, turn on switch.. no light tune bulb around.. Repeat till all work, unplug cluster, reassemble.,,,install cluster
