Part Number Request:Sunvisor light bulbs

Post by nerox » Thu Nov 08, 2012 5:52 pm

Does anyone know what type of bulb is used in the sunvisor vanity lights?

One of mine has blown and I've been to 3 different parts stores and none of them recognise it or can find anything vaguely similar.

The only thing I noticed is that it says on it 14v 0.1a but I thought it unusual for a bulb to be rated in amps instead of watts!

Unless they are actually fuses instead of bulbs?

I think they are # 74? I may be thinking of the lighted rear view mirror tho. But I believe those are 194.


Got any pics of the bulbs?

Nope.
I'm convinced its actually a fuse because its rated at 0.1a

Chrysler dealer has no idea what it is and apparently isn't in the service manual.

That pic sure looks like a fuse to me.....

Have you thought about replacing this with an LED bulb ?
In that case, it would be necessary to find out what LED would fit that application..... :-k

I did manage to find a festoon type bulb that fitted in the holder, but it was too thick and would scratch the mirror glass underneath

Mopar Parts....

VISOR VANITY: 6501966 Bulb MSRP $2.35


Not sure if it is a dealer thing or not, but unless you can find another source...


VANITY LAMP
REMOVAL
(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable.
(2) Lower visor.
(3) Insert a small flat bladed tool between the
lamp lens and lamp.
(4) Carefully pry lens outward.
(5) Remove bulb from socket.
INSTALLATION
(1) Position bulb in socket and snap into place.
(2) Position lens on lamp and snap into place.
(3) Connect the battery negative cable.

Damn, they even cover their butts on disconnecting the battery for that. :lol:

Oh sweet .... Perhaps my local dealer couldn't be bothered to look it up!

Thanks for that!

Perhaps move to P/N requests to help others?

The fuse still has me wondering. It is not shown in the schematics. Other than fuse 13 in the PDC, 15 amp.
