The light fittings on my 97 were missing when I bought it but the connectors were still be hanging off the loom that runs along the bottom of the dash.
Feel up under the bottom edge of the dash about 8" from the door-side end of the dash - you will find short pigtails with connectors coming off the loom.

Yes- you have lights down there. My drivers was completely broken. This is what it should look like:

I have a 97 and swapped mine out to all blue... I love the color, but the red comes off as purple.kind of annoying but doable.

greghogan17 Finally did this. Ordered the lights Monday and they came in today. I couldn't be happier!

jonwooding Anyone know the correct bulbs for '97 HVAC w/ slider? I ordered the NEO4 a year ago and they didn't fit, then I stupidly ordered them again last month

Also, think those soundbar/floorboard will work on a '97? I haven't pulled mine to see what they're using.

I tried switching spots and bulbs. Wherever that one bulb socket ends up, it's dim on the gauge cluster. All I can think is it has to be a bad socket.

WadeP I did my 2005 last year. 5 dash, 3 HVAC, 2 floorboard and 2 soundbar. Here are the numbers for anyone's reference:


2 WLED-BHP5 Blue
2 4410-B9 Blue
5 74-BHP Blue
3 NEO4-BHP 4mm NEO4-xHP Blue

jon 123 I was interested in changing my lights for the gauge cluster, heater controls, foot wells, stock switches, the dome light in my 2000 jeep wrangler tj what bulbs should i use
01-17-2015 05:44 PM
NCtom Got the red ones in for my dash and it looks great. HVAC IS still very dim. Probably not the LEDs fault. I have the sliders in my 97.

I got reverse lights too and they are great. Just white of course.

Easy and fun. If I can do it anyone can.

JREDmoto11 Okay, I've tried skimming through this post and wasn't clear on what bulbs I would need to do my gauges, HVAC, sound bar and floor boards. Any help would be appreciated, thanks for any help.

cghjghj Post pics when you get it done. Bet that red is going to look awesome.

Bullethead Neil, great recall. I didn't think I had them until about 6 months later a bulb dropped down onto my floor bed. I looked up and found the cover cap on the Driver side. The passenger doesn't have the cover cap. which is why I missed it. I just thought it was something holding up the glove box.

Driver Courtesy Light housing is a bit more promising. I have the cap to remove, I then see a copper cylinder that I attempted to pull off / screw left to loosen, but i didn't want to tear it off if its supposed to be there. I attempted to place the new bulb in there but didn't feel anywhere to wedge it in.

Has anyone any advice / or run into this also? Again I will attempt to get photos for better imagery.
You were working on this two years ago. I thought you determined that you did not have courtesy lights? http://www.wranglerforum.com/f210/co...on-205439.html

Where did you find those UV bulbs?
