Repair Switch Lamps

Inspired by a post on Drive Accord, but I did not see one here. Both my sunroof and VSA lamps are burned out, so I wanted to create a thread for repairing the existing lamp, instead of replacing them.

Tools used for the job:
Philips screwdriver for the lower dash panel. Flat head side for bulb removal. Wire cutters to trim the wire leads on the new bulbs. Miniature flat head screwdriver to guide the wire leads onto the holder. Reading glasses for my old eyes.

Parts needed for the job, bulb and blue filter from Mouser Electronics.
JKL bulb part number 560-23, 1 for 0.39, 10 for 0.345.
JKL blue filter part number 560-39025A, 1 for 0.20, 10 for 0.18.
Blue filters are a bit darker than the one on the OEM lamp. Use if you want. Mine stayed in one piece, so I did not need them.

Time it took to make the repair was about 30 minutes.

1st ? loosen the lower dash panel enough to gain access to the switches for removal.

Links to help with this process:
Fog light installation document, starting on page 13.
YouTube Fog light installation link 1, link 2.

2nd ? Remove switches then remove each lamp.

3rd ? Separate the bulb from lamp base and from color filter.

Filter will come off under gentle persuasion with your fingernail. Take your time so it won?t tear.
New bulb is about 10% shorter, but the filter will fit with no issues.

4th ? Rebuilding the lamp.
Thread the new bulb into the base. Wrap the wire leads around the base, reverse to the removal of the old bulb. Test the lamp to make sure it lights up, and trim the leads so they can tuck back into the base channels.

Final ? Install the lamp back into the switches, and hook back up to test.
If all lights up, re-install the switches back into the dash panel, and re-install the panel.

I?ve read other posts that reference Radio Shack bulbs (272-1092). Nothing wrong with these bulbs, but I found the JKL bulbs are matching specs for voltage and current (14 volts, 0.40mA) as shown on Honda eStore. In addition to it matching, it should last longer than the Radio Shack bulb (10K average life hours to JKL?s 16K average life hours). Both have the same brightness of 0.15 MSCP. I bought 10 to help offset the shipping. Whether you buy 1 bulb or 100, the shipping is probably still the same due to Mouser only charges by weight, and these weigh almost nothing. Between my wife?s Acura TL-S and my Accord, I have plenty of bulbs to repair instead of replacing, saving me money down the road.

aHA! So those are all supposed to light up! My '07 EX-L is my first-ever Honda, so I'm starting from almost complete ignorance after years of driving other-brand cars. None of my assumptions and conclusions hold good any more, which is a little disorienting...posts like this help a lot, thank you!
