i just realized that for the headlights, there are 4 bulbs (i always thought there was 3, hah)...found that (passenger side, left to right) its 194 (turn signal), 9007 (headlight), 194 (???), 3157 (sidemarker)...what's the other 194 used for?

and just got me some TYC Tails (still waiting for it)...and this is what i'm trying to figure out...i know what some of them are, i think (passenger side, left to right): 921 (backup), 3157 (brake - top), ??? (??? - bottom), ??? (???), 3157 (turn)...but what are the ones i dont know?

cause i am: :clueless:

The other 194 is a parking light IIRC. All the bulbs in the TYC's are 3157.

For the headlight, the 194 between the signal bulb and the headlight bulb just stays on with parking lights or headlights.

The corner bulbs for TYC is also 194. The brake light is 3157 and signal/backup is 3156.

Huh? Not really sure what you are asking, but I think it is suppesed to be amber in color. I have white LED's and have never had a problem.

i should of been more specific but you answered it...i wanted to know what color it should be (clear or amber) when its lit. i got it to where the 3157 and the 194s will be chrome (it looks cool with the black headlights) while being whatever color it should be when lit

Yeah I used to have them too, but the chrome peeled off after a while. LED's are the way to go...

damn they do...oh well, at least they'll look cool for however long or short they last....i kinda wished they did make chrome LEDs, then i'd get that.

Most LED's are clear...
