    What bulb do I need for my door?

    I feel like I am asking to many questions. I need a new bulb to light up my driver side door lock and window buttons. I just don't know what bulb number I need for my 99 ta. The buttons don't light up themselfs but there is a little light neer the door handle. anyone know the bulb number? thanks

    I replaced mine not long ago...don't remember the #, but they looked it up for me at the parts store. Or you could always call the parts dept at the dealer and get a #.

    Most but not all

    And I believe Kage is right about the #168

    Bulb number 74 is one the correct bulb numbers. However, bulb number 561 should also work as well as bulb number 194.

    I just ran this down yesterday: NEGATIVE Ghostrider JEB, you will need a large hammer to fit a 194 bulb in a 74 socket, it is twice the size of a 194!

    Put some white #74 leds in mine today, since these have a better forward beam like a flashlight rather than the wide spread patten of the filiment 74 bulbs, I think the color is much brighter on the switches, worth the under $10 for both and the 10 mins to do it, IMHO.
