Hi all,

This is a little bit old topic, but I think this is still the best place to ask about the dashlights

I recently bought Jimny (model 2007) and now I noticed that my 'hazard light switch' and 'rear screen dimister / mirror heater switch' lights (bulbs?) are broken. I read some old topics etc. and I think that at least there is a replaceable bulb (I think it is T3 or something) in the side of hazard light switch. Does anyone have any better knowledge about the bulb, fe. dimensions (diameter)? Or photo of bulb? Or any advice for the replacement?

My other question is concerning the rear screen dimister (heater) switch, does anyone know is there replaceable bulb at all? Or is there any easy way to fix the light? I could not find any topics or photos concerning this heater switch light/bulb fixing.

I'll open the centre console in the next weekend (found the instructions, thanks) and check the switches, but I would really appreciate all the advices I can get concerning this job.

BR,
Kari

Sorry for the bump, but which bulb(s) do I need in order to replace the broken bulbs in:
1. heater control
2. 4WD buttons

its a 2006 jimny VVT. same as the topic author has, it seems that the links in the topic are not accurate.
can someone post the correct link for the above bulbs or just write the bulb model needed?
I dont want to disassemble the entire thing just to find out I'm missing the correct bulb..
thanks!!

I'm not too sure about the heater controls, however I'll have a look tomorrow and see what size they are.

As for the 4WD controls, they take these: www.maplin.co.uk/p/coloured-subminiature-bulbs-red-pg78k

I tried LEDs first before reading the thread again when they wouldn't work, I'm assuming it was something to do with them not getting enough power

I looked on eBay for clear submini. bulbs but had no luck.

Heater controls take two T5 bulbs. Originals have red silicone caps over them, but I threw them away. Now it's white and a lot brighter.

I changed my heater control bulbs today, it was a right ball ache.

I found the best way to swap them over was to remove the stereo so you can get access from above to the one on the right and twist it out.

However the one on the left was trickier to remove properly, so I pulled the actual bulb from the little black holder by moving the thin plastic fascia to expose it.

Halfords sell the bulbs separately from the holders , but on eBay there's green ones which look pretty tempting

Looks nice for now anyway :)

I couldn't find original bulbs and didn't want to wait so I did some soldering and now there are two T3 bulbs lighting up my buttons. They're a bit too bright but at least they work.

Ok so I finally had some time to change all the bulbs:
The AC light required a removal of the black background, the knobs to get to the bulb (the right one especially..)
The T5 leds fits perfectly, don't forget the tiny red rubber:



The 4WD switch also require a bulb change, I dont have time to wait for ebay so I just bought 2 T3 bulbs (we call them "rice bulb" here..)


Now I need to reassemble everything..

These bulbs are not expensive from Suzuki original, and then you will get the correct ones right away and no hazzle.

When I had te replace the light bulbs from the trasmission buttons, I couldn't find any good source, therefore I've replced them wiht LED's soldered via a resistor directly on the board. For better visibility I've installed white ones.
