LED Lights for 98 Civic Hatch

Guys,

So in attemps for a quick and easy upgrade/mode

I decided to switch up my bulbs to white LED

My front corners I used 1157 bulbs
For my dome light i used a 194 bulb

I want to upgrade all the small bulbs in my guage cluster, of which i though would be 194's but these are half the size of a 194, does anyoen know that size/kind those are?

In the back of the cluster there are 14 of those small ones, and (1) 194 but the bulb i use doesn't even light up when i connect it seems as if its not making good contact becuase it doesn't snap in like the stock bulb

Does anyone have any idea what bulbs i need, or if you have seen done this mod, maybe some recommendations?

any 194 bulbs worked better for other one i'm usign see below i think is too big for the opening:


I would do a guage upgrade but all they sell are overlays, or that indego color which i really don't prefer I want something that a hyper white figure the led bulbs woudl provide a better lit display in comparison to whats presently installed


thanks in advance.

i did the same thing to my coupe and changed all the exterior lamp bulbs with LED, except the turn signals. i didn't want to mess with a new hazard/flasher relay.
as for the instrument cluster, i posted a picture of the amber conversion that i did. the back lighting didn't affect the needles so i had to change the ones on top. I'll see if i can find that post somewhere here.

Re: LED Lights for 98 Civic Hatch

Guys,

So after looking on google. i figured out the following about the instrument panel.

I need:
3 #24 led bulbs
2 #74 led bulbs
1 #194 led bulb


My only question now is, what bulbs are used to light the A/C Control panel, and illuminate the rear defroster button?


Thanks in advance

-Sergio
