: Dash bulbs....what's the difference??......

I had a bulb burn out on the dash cluster and decided that I'd get a few just to have for future needs. These bulbs are along the left-hand side info. center (air bag, oil level, oil pressure, engine), top corner of dash. The bulb base is about the size of a shirt button, the glass itself about 3/16" long.

Went to a local dealer to pick up a few and found a couple discrepancies. The bulb listed in their computer was: #83119-24070, had a brown base with V-2 and JSD marked on the back.

The bulb I pulled is: #90072-02005, has a black base with V-2 and TSD marked on the back. Maybe I have the JSD and TSD markings reversed, I don't have either bulb in my hand at the moment.

They looked identical besides the color. However, the brown one (which the computer had shown in the dash location) was ~$2. The bulb, with the black base, that I pulled from my '93, was $10!!!

Needless to say I didn't buy any and was hoping that someone could tell me the differences between the two, if any. Still follow me? Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks for any info!

Not sure if this helps at all, but I have my main gauge cluster sitting right beside me here. Speedo, Tach, fuel, water temp, etc. There are some warning lights in this cluster too: highbeams, TRAC, cruise, and parking brake. The bulbs for these warning lights are black base, V-2 on the bulb holder, and TSD on the glass bulb itself.

If the physical sizes of the brown-base and black-base holders are the same, then you should be good to go. It's only $2 to try a brown bulb, so might as well give it a shot.

Has anyone replaced their bulbs in their complete dash with PIAA extreme whites? Any pics? I need something to match my DEFI BF setup.
