The microfiche is no help. It just lists it as a 12v/3W bulb. They are pretty tiny. I have not had to replace one yet but if I had to take a guess, I would think they are #24 bulbs.

I guess I don't understand. Have you taken one to an auto parts store? There are a few bulbs Honda uses that don't seem to have a generic equivalant. Like the GL12I dash lights. 12v~3w, but surely not the same as the trunk light on a GL15.
EDIT: This is a GL12 dash light, notthe trunk light.

you might try a #74 bulb, which is about half the width of the very popular #194 bulbs, used in auto dashes & side markers & license lights...

the #74 is 12v , but shaped different from your picture, I don't know what wattage the #74 is..

Hey KJackson,



I just replaced a few of those bulbs the other day. I went all around our local areal electrical \ electronic \ supply stores and could find nothing. I could order them in but I wanted something "now" as I had the back trunk apart.



I ended up going to Honda for the bulbs. They had them in stock.



However, I just yesterday I was going through the Cyclemax site and found that they had these. They are the proper bulbs for what you are looking for.

Don't put a higher wattage in as it could produce a stronger "spot of heat" and start to melt or deform the plastics there.

From the looks of the red plastic lense, this may have happened to mine before I bought it.
