HVAC LED install
 
I have a 98, and I just replaced the lights in my gauge cluster with blue HP3 LEDs. I really liked it, so now I want to do the lights in my HVAC. I'm pretty comfortable with all of the HVAC parts and removing the switches and such. I was wondering if someone could post on how to do this exactly (bulb numbers and locations of the bulbs). I know there are posts on it, but they aren't very detailed in the HVAC procedure, just the gauge cluster installation. I was hoping to do the slider heating controller and the two switches for rear defroster and wiper. Thanks!

For the slide controls the bulbs are the same as the gauge clusters. As for the actual install all you have to do is pop the center trim piece off, four bolts hold in the HVAC control unit and that's as far as you have to go. There are two twist lock holders the the back side of the control unit, one on each side.

Thanks.
How many bulbs and what kind?

The HVAC takes two 194 bulbs. The Auto shifter takes a 658 but 194 can work there too.

Sure wish I had done a little more research before I bought the wrong bulbs for the HVAC controls for my 2002 TJ. From personal experience, you DO NOT want to buy the NEO5-BHP 5mm bulbs!!! They don't fit into the socket. Chalk on up for jumping the gun. This is a super easy mod that anyone can do and the results are great.

THis is what I ordered for my '98. It is enough to do the instrument cluster and the HVAC as well. I got white for the HVAC because I heard that it already has a blue tint film between the light source and your eyes. I actually ordered enough so I can do the HVAC either white or blue, whichever I like best.

That's from vLEDs, which was a bit cheaper than the other place but just as good if not better from what I can tell.

Good Luck!
