  1. Running light bulb replacement

    Sequoia Forum
    My driver side front running light went out so I replaced it with a 3157 amber bulb. When I removed the bulb a bunch of red plastic paper fell off of it so I was just assuming it was old. The passenger side looks like the running lights are white on the upper half with the turn signal below...
  2. Bulb and Lens Color Combinations

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    So, if this is true for LED bulbs... Why aren't the conventional 7440 rear turn signal bulbs for the LE, SE, XLE ranges RED instead of white? Been a while since Physics but is LED output polarized so the spectrum is affected by lens color whereas conventional bulbs aren't? I'm asking as I'm...
  3. 1992 Camry XLE Backup Bulb: 1156 or 1157?

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I need to replace both backup/reverse lights on a '92 Camry XLE. Online parts checkers all say it's a single filament 1156, but I tried that on both receptacles but it won't fit even if I push it in (can't push too hard for obvious reasons). The old, burnt-out bulbs are both 1157's. Aside from...

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    My front side marker light, or running light, doesn't light up, but the blinker works just fine. I inspected the bulb and both filaments appear to be fine. I even threw in a new bulb, but the same issue occurred. Has anyone ever seen this before, and if so, would it be an issue with wiring. Any...

  15. Best low temp 7440 bulb?

    Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I installed a set of OEM BZ Touring headlights in my car, and I wired the side markers to my parking lights. The 21 watt 7440 bulb worries me, as it might get very hot. It's meant only to blink, not stay on, so I'm not going to risk it melting the housing and I will replace it. What's the best...
