04 LX coupe Map Lights?

They must be differnt in the 04-05 than the 01-03? I did some search and popped of the lens expecting to see wedge-type bulbs, however they look like very small festoon bulbs. Can anyone verify this? If so what size (in mm) are they.

Festoon= typical Dome Light bulb.

The reason being is that I am trying to swap them out for LEDs.

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

If you're talking about swapping them for the led festoon style, don't bother. I tried a couple different ones for the main dome light in my 04 DX, and they were all so dim, i went back to the stock bulb. if you're going to do leds, you'll prolly have to do it gearbox style and solder some good leds in there. as far as the bulbs themselves, majestic honda lists the stock ones as "BULB (12V8W) (DAIICHI)". you may find the size if you google that. hope this helps.

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

my advice is to stick with the stock bulbs. i replaced them once with some pretty freakin bright ones and it was literally blinding. even the $1.29 bulbs from autozone are a bit brighter than id like

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

Ambulance- any chance you tried any from www.SuperBrightLEDs.com thats where I am about to order them from.

So I have one vote for too dim and one vote for too bright?

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

i'd PM Gearbox. he can tell you where to get the LEDs from. also, i think chawski is talking about incandescent bulbs that he bought being too bright, not LEDs.

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

Do you have an 04 coupe? If so, which exact bulbs did you order from them. I too was looking around SuperBrightLeds.

As far as removing the plastic pieces to install the bulbs...

You can just use a small flathead screwdriver. Insert it in the little notch on the leftmost or rightmost part of the lens and just turn it a little bit and it should fall right down giving you access to the bulbs.

Let me know how you make out.

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

The bulbs # for those style are DE 3175 ( original, 12V 8W ) Dome & Map

The map light covers come off very easy, as mentioned release from sides toward center of car.

For the dome light look for small areas on front and rear of lense that look like [ ]

[ B______F ]



[ B______F ]

Release back side of lense with small blade screwdriver.

Re: 04 LX coupe Map Lights?

No, I have a '03 coupe. Sizes of the bulbs that I bought were 3022-x4 LED Festoon bulb for the maplight and I am not too sure about the domelight. I was able to open the domelight and the bulb needed is BULB 578, 12.8V, 10W. I'll be trying to replace my bulbs tonight. I'll post how it turns out.

The RED 3022-x4 LED Festoon bulb for the maplight I installed is not what I expected. It is not bright at all. I am planning on replacing them with white ones but with 9 LEDS. I hope it would be bright.
