    I have noticed that most of my dash switches do not illuminate any longer. Does anybody know where I can purchase the leds?

    ect, antenna up/down, defrost,

    the antenna up and down use a smaller bulb then the standard switch. Just get replacement bulbs from toyota.

    www.superbrightleds.com should have some you can use in the dash/switches.

    FYI they are not LEDS they are actual filiment bulbs. IIRC there are 3 sizes for all the switches and the instrument panel.

    I have friend that said he got replacement bulbs very cheap at radio shack. I don't know part numbers or which bulbs. Just passing on what he said as a possible place to look.

    I've seen someone who have replaced the button/switch bulbs with LED with good outcome, but not the ones for the meters and such (not enough light spreading).

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the help--knowing that they are bulbs--no wonder they went out. I'm surprised my HIR's have held up so well.
