Interior bulb question

I'm told the window switches are lit. Mine are dark, and my HVAC cold/warm buttons are not either. I looked at the interior forum and found this list. But it seems to be for a 94, I've a 93.
Instrument-general

Does anyone know if what's below will be good for a 93, I suspect yes.

Does anyone know what the bulbs are for the HVAC and the door switches?


Thanks!
Nate

The gen 1s didn't get any illuminated door switches. The bulbs in the HVAC head are probably the tiny 37 bulbs, but I'm not positive. Otherwise my bet would be 194s...

My Dakota used 74s in the HVAC head; I've not checked the EATC head in the Cougar, though.

I'd have some 74's handy to drop in if that's what it uses.

I believe you're right. Here's one from the salvage yard...it's burnt out too



I'll get an LED one...never replace again!

there are two other bulbs in the HVAC unit, even SMALLER than 37. They don't come out, but are in their plastic base...can remove with a flathead... Any ideas? Mine aren't burnt out, but it's good to have spares!

The pic is a type 37 bulb which does light the cool/warm lights on the HVAC
the other type is Ford part 13B765....TINY BULBS

I'm also seeing a #8605 bulb on the Ford Parts site, they want a TON of $$ for it...? Says heater controls light.

Finally got the HVAC lights all fixed. Coudn't have been a bigger pain in the ass! Take off the IP cluster surround, take off the middle vent surrounds, take off the steering wheel key cover ( the part around the hazards), take off the center console top, pull out HVAC unit. Disconnect wires and vacuum lines, take apart HVAC unit (easy once you figure it out)... put in new lights... reverse...

whew, two hours of work, but they light up now! You can actually use a variety of lights, the pic above, that works on all the HVAC lights, it must be the OEM grey sockets (otherwise the HVAC unit won't slide back in its slot), but by using those, you can just swap bulbs if they burn out.. and all autoparts stores sell the, 87's.


I'm done for the day on work...tomorrow, fix the power seat motors.
