    Angry Instrument Panel Bulbs

    I have a 98 Catera and some lights have gone out behind the instrument cluster (fog light and fuel guage). I was able to remove the cluster and get to the bulbs. The fuel guage uses a 194 bulb that easily pulls out of a yellow socket which screws in the cluster, but the fog light and some of the other lights, use a small bulb in a orange socket holder. This bulb does not pull out of the orange holder so I assume the holder and the bulb are one piece and I have no idea where to get there bulbs. If someone can help me out, it would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Well....is it an LED or a traditional blub type of thing?
    If its an LED (Sorry, no experience behind the gagues), just go over to Radio Shack and pick some LED's up. You could probably get someone from Radio Shack to test the wireing and bulbs to find out exactly what kind of bulb you need, so i dunno...I'll check in the Catera Bible when i get home...

    Sucks u had to switch the cluster with the sport metal trim. That's probably why lots of sport Catera I see for sale with the wrong cluster, because they have been replaced. Such a shame. Very nice video John , gonna replace some bulbs in the summer will definitely use this video. Thanks man.
