The Lights that light up the guages

Recommended Posts

Hey All

I was just curious what type of Bulbs or LEDs light up our instrument panel. I am talking about our guages, our buttons for A/C and radio. I was curious because I am adding a McIntosh Sound System and wanted to have the lights in the car ALL Blue. Are the LEDs just covered with a "condom" that emits that *****-yellow light, or is it different. Thank you

I have a 2000 996 and I also find the current bulbs not bright enough. Since mine utilizes incadescent bulbs, I thought I may try LED bulbs because they glow brighter, run cooler, and last longer. After some consulting with Loren, I found the bulbs in the Service Manual:

Bulbs for Instrument cluster are:

EBS-P/4-A 1.5 W

EBS-P/4-A 1.2 W

I also found a web page that makes LED bulbs for various applications including automotive purposes. The bulbs come in WHITE, BLUE, RED & GREEN.

Automotive LEDs

more specifically

Dash Board LEDs

Let me know if you find out whether these will work or not?
