Gauge lights


Recommended Posts

I have a VDO boost gauge that i have fitted, but i would like to illuminate it (green like the rest of the dash if poss). It looks like it has a barrel on the back of it like the other gauges that will take the bulk holder. Can anyone tell me what the part i need is likely to be - holder and wiring (which i presume i can splice into the wiring for the existing gauges).

I've extracted the bulb holder from one of my VDO voltmeters, on the end between the 12v & earth male spade terminals it has PA66 moulded as raised digits opposite is G3 I don't know for sure but suspect these are VDO part numbers.

wiring can just be connected into the existing gauges illumination wiring, thats all I did.

the holder looks like this [with one of simonb's 4 element leds fitted.

Might be possible to get a Td5 fuel or temp gauge bulb holder to fit.
