City Lights

Change overs from US spec to Euro's or slightly newer conversions. Changes to the rear lighting or interior can be talked about here as well.

City Lights

Post by windsorlove » Wed May 05, 2010 11:07 am

So, i finally hooked up the city lights in my 90 Cabby. I replaced the clear bulb that came with the lights with amber 194's. The problem is, the 194's look much dimmer than the clear bulbs. Does anyone know what bulb is supposed to go in there?

I can pull the bulb out of mine to check what type it is, provided I remember to (just aged another year :lol: ), but mine is clear:

In the meantime, make sure all of the ground connections are clean and all of your wiring connections for the lights are good. Also verify that the bulb is seated properly. City/park light bulbs are only supposed to be around 5 watts, in Europe anyway.

I do realize that the city lights are not supposed to be very bright, but like i said, the 194's seem too dim. The clear light in the first picture is the one that came in the light. The lights came from TMTuning so i am assuming that the bulb that came in the light is correct.
