Default Courtesy - Dome - Map Interior Light Bulb Information

Having bought the wrong bulbs based on stale info in other threads, I've added this thread so that others don't fall into this hole. (Yes, others have corrected this info, but those corrections are often buried deep in the other threads, so I am bringing it up here to the top level to help others.)

This courtesy - dome - map interior bulb is not the same as the festoon bulb used in glove box and trunk!

The correct bulb part number is 194, which has a wedge base.

FYI I switched to LEDs and am very pleased with the results. The light is now much brighter, but be aware that this bulb gives a cool white.

My choice was the Philips 194LED, which comes in a two pack for ~$11 from Amazon.

I used this type of LED T10 bulbs. All the light is focused in one direction and are considerably brighter than those that shine front and side.
These ones are really cheap, mine were a bit more expensive but only 3W but exactly the same to look at. CLICK

Dome light:
After the door is closed, the dome light dims but does not go out. I have already replaced it with one I purchased off e-bay with the same problem remaining. What is the fix for this problem? JoeG

Sorry but I have not seen this problem, you must have a leak in the wiring. Or is it a low voltage that is monitored to detect a bulb out situation and trip the Light Out bulb on the dash.
I should run a voltmeter to check this out.
