    Default 99 Suburban factory stero backlighting

    Hello all- a portion of my backlighting has burned out, not all at the same time, but one bulb here and one there, until now it's almost completely dark when the headlights are selected on. I pulled it apart and looks as if the bulbs are soldered on the board. Has anyone attempted to re-solder new bulbs in? If so, how difficult and where did you aquire the bulbs?

    Thanks for any assistance,
    Jason

    You should be able to get just about any bulb you come across, from Radio shack. But if they don't have what you're looking for you will definately find it at Mouser.
    With any luck there will be some part number on the bulb to help you determine what type it is. Additionally mouser's catalog has images of the part, and specs that will help you determine the best match, if not a direct replacement.

    Unsoldering the old bulb, and soldering in a new one shouldn't be too hard.

    Funny how these types of issues all come up at the same time.
