I have a 05 taco and have a burt bulb.I have searched and searched and cant find the answer...... so here it goes, there are two small bulbs that have a brown twist backing on them that you use a flat head screw driver to take them off and put them on. Does anyone have a clue to a bulb number for these or were to get them other than the dealership.:confused:

climate control bulbs are neowedges size 12.15mm, goggle neowedge leds or pm moi. You can also get acorn filament bulbs at Radio Shack, but I wouldn't go that route. No need to solder...

Yeah, you're correct. I was getting those mixed up with the dash bulbs. See what old age does to ya? :disappoin

I thought that those were a molded base bulb so I went to the dealership and bought one. After ripping the old one apart, I see that it is a plastic base and the contacts are actually the leads of the bulbs, easy to duplicate if you have the bulb. Oh well, a $10 lesson learned...

The weird thing about the bulb layout, if the left bulb is burnt out, the right pushbutton goes out and the left one stays on...:confused:

ok I am having a similar problem with my 05 Tacoma. The climate control dials for the speed and temp are still lit up, but the far right dial for face/feet and defrost settings is not lit.

Below that row of dials the A/C button is not back lit, but when button is pressed the button lights up. Howerver the recycled air button works as normal.

I have not checked fuses or anything yet, but I beleive this is just a bulb issue? I search around and found this thread. As well as this info in another thread:

The illumination for the dash comes from 10A fuse IG1 no.2, and the 10A Tail fuse but they also power your gear shift indicator, so a fuse is out as a source.

Is it common for these bulbs to burn out this soon?

I've had really bad luck with the new style bulbs they use in the Taco. In the past 2.5 years, I have replaced 2 in the fog light switch, 1 in the locker switch (it's on the fritz again), and 3 in the climate controls.
