Hi guys & gals.

I need some help.

I have a 1996 Satria 1.3, and I'm planning to replace all the bulbs with LED, so I never have to worry about new bulbs, and because the yellow bulb light makes my car look old :)

So far, I've replaced the interior dome light & headlight (small bulb) with LED.

I need help to find out what bulbs & number of bulbs for the aircond controls & speedometer bulbs.
I know some are T5 and some are T10... just that I don't know how many for each.

EDIT : found this thread... reading thru now :)

HI Jeya,

I think its pretty tough to get all the LED bulbs with compatible holders (connection). I tried looking and most of them are so damn exspensive. Alternatively, I suggest u drop by down to pudu area and get LED strips and just wire them.

Its cheaper and you could customize in any color you desire. Abit more work but I think worth it until they get cheaper in the market.

Bump: I am in the midst of working on changing the backlights of the dashboard with changeble colored LEDS and hooking it up to a switch...let you guys know if it works well.

Its easy to hook up but not so to make light up nicely at nights and positioning is a damn pain...

seriously... can anyone help pls...
its a 1996 Satria, with the numberplate in the bumper, looks like this >

I just need to know how many bulbs to buy. I've asked the accessory shops, they keep saying dunno, need to open up to see, and I think they're trying to get some payment for the labour.

scrapped the LED strip idea... cos dun wanna re-wire the sockets...

if anyone knows where to get amber (not clear) bulbs... also OK... I'm trying to get the slightly orange colour...
