Well anyhow, WELCOME TO THE FORUM.

I'm going to have to use your three wisest words.

I Don't know.

I ran the Honda Goldwing 1500 Electronic Service Manual program with no luck.

I poked through the CDMOTO pdf files on your 99 SE and found all kinds of info.

But no info for any bulbs in your controls.

I see you are in Washington State so your riding is probably done for the season too.

So take your Control Switch apart and pull the bulb and see if there is any markings on the bulb.

Otherwise you are stuck like the rest of us older wing riders.

After awhile your fingers know where everything is, Even with gloves on.

But you still find yourself Racooning down the road, Fingers touching everything to find that switch you know is right about...... Ahhhhh There...

Good Luck Bud

The handlebar controls are not lit up unless you have aftermarket labels added. At least, I know the '88 and the '97 are not backlit. They must have changed it after '97. There is a company that sells a kit of illuminated labels that can be placed over the stock ones.

Go to bikebandit.com, and they show two T3 bulbs # 149562-001 and # 155069-001 for your bike. :waving:

I have seen some pretty small 12vDC "rice kernel" bulbs, at model train places. I replaced some backlites to an old radio panel with some, worked great.Just put em where I wanted them and epoxied em in place.They don't get hot enough to hurt the epoxy. Just an idea. jimsjinx
