There was just a thread yesterday about some replacing them with Putco LEDS. Search for that and maybe the user, (I think it was JesseRohr) could help you out.

Question about overhead console

I was looking for info. about the map lights - not the overhead dome light. Concerning the reply about pulling the entire console down.... the entire console just to get to the 2 map lights? Are you sure this is how you access them? Thanks and hope to hear from as many 04-08 owners concerning my questions.

You should see a spot on the lens (outer edge) where a blade/S'driver may go as a prying/leverage point. Or in my case I was able to get the tips of my fingers under the lip and gently pulled.

Thanks Rich

Thanks Rich for the info. It's 9pm and dark out right now. But I will take a look in the morning. Do you have any idea what size bulb is used as a replacement? Are they available at Auto Zone or Advance or are they only available at the dealer? Thanks and hope to hear back from you.

Thanks

Thanks for the info. and link to the video. It seems to be pretty simple. Have you by chance installed these LED lights in your interior? Take care.

I am thinking of getting it. I found the kit at several online places for around $70. I will likely order it in a couple of weeks.

My Next Question Concerning This Topic

Thanks for all the info. I took a meer 1 minute to pop off the overhead console cover and access the bulbs. WOW! Easy as hell! BUT!!!! Does anyone know where you can buy COLORED (preferably RED) replacement bulbs? I checked Advance Auto and as usual they only have clear bulbs. The bulb # is a 900 which was not in stock on the shelves. Any ideas besides the $70 kit from Putco? Thanks and hope to hear back from as many memners as possible.
