Hi, I'm new to this forum and Commander ownership in general....
I wanted to share this with you all.
I recently purchased my 06 Commander and 2 of the 3 bulbs in the Heater control unit were out so I searched for a suitable substitute and this is what I found and used.
So far so good....
I purchased the lamps at Radio Shack. They were in the LAMP drawers and not the LED drawers as the LED's were rated 3.6v and produce a cool bluish white light. (I also purchased a few of them)
The bulbs are part #272-1154
Cost - $1.69 each
The lamps are slightly smaller but just as bright and unlike an LED the light is emitted all around rather than directional
Just unsolder the existing lamps from the circuit board, bend/trim the pins on new lamp into shape with small needle nose pliers and solder in place.
DONE! Works like a charm and can be done quickly!
