If you're replacing all the other interior lights as well I would choose the natural white for the interior. It should be brighter and make it easier to see. But yes cool white for the gauge cluster will definitely shine more blue.

Cool white is brighter than natural white, natural white is what you want if you want it to look like a normal light bulb

This is what "Cool White" looks like in the '97-'98 cluster. You can tell by looking at the ODO section. I apologize for the pic - its from a phone.

BTW, I also used Cool White as color choice for the HVAC controls, doors and overhead. Cool White has a slight blue color that does well with a grey interior. My JVC head unit allowed for display color change, so now it matches the blue in the cluster.

Question about tag lights. I have purchased 2 different ones so far and they were both to tall to fit. They work but the cover won't latch back on because the bulb is too tall. Does anyone know of a bulb that is the right size? Preferably amazon prime.

So I installed ep27 relay and installed LEDs in my corners and tails and now when I put my blinkers on my overhead temp flashes with my blinkers and my odometer read out any ideas?

Inside Door lights. x2
1.

2. (Make sure you go from the top down.)

3.

4. (They are Polar so if they don't work one way, turn them around.)

5.


Easy money.

HVAC
1. Pry the big panel off. I would have shown you the special technique to doing this but it's so easy, if you can't do it, you shouldn't be changing light bulbs.

2. There are 4 of these 7mm screws.

3. (7mm)

4. Magic..

5. (Pull it out but not too far. You can lease the harnesses connected.)

6. Two of these.

7.

8.


9. Put them in, Close it up. Easy money.

10. I'll edit in a Night shot later.

Over Head
1. Audiovox overhead, I'm pretty sure it's stock.

2. (Pry from the Center.)

3. (Already had aftermarket bulbs from Autozone.)

4. New LEDs

5. Bright White

6. Edit later for night picture.

Not bad for $10 and 10 minutes.

Holy toad stools they're bright. I'm glad I didn't change the rear lights. I'd never be able to turn lights on when the munchnkin is sleeping in the car seat. LoL.

This may have been asked, but what do you do if some of the lights on the gauge cluster don't work? The lights that don't work, are the ones that have a needle, except for the speedometer, and that one shines enough light so I can see the others at night. I want to replace the ones behind the needles. Or, buy a new assembly with the lights already fixed to it.
