Saw some entire control heads on Ebay using "Bonneville SSE" as the searchwords

I THINK (not entirely sure) that those bulbs would be a 194, but please double check. Kind of a push in type of bulb

i've had it apart and I don't think they are 194 bulbs. Unless I have those bulbs mistaken for what'* in the bottom. I might have to take it back out too make sure. As for the whole AC unit on ebay i'd be crazy to buy a whole new unit for 13 bucks when all I need is a stinkin bulb.

probably right. I suggested Ebay just in case I misunderstood and it WAS a soldered in type lamp that isnt available..then you would have a replacement alternative.

If its a removable lamp...CAREFULLY remove it and see if there is a number either on the glass itself or stamped into the base.

Then find an electrical supply house or better auto store and try your luck there. At least thats what I would do

I had the same problem on my 89. There are three bulbs in there. Nobody sold them except GM. I had the dealer order me three of them. Special order item only...

If they are the same bulbs, they look like a regular cornering light bulb, but about a quarter of the size. They are available at Advance Auto, I believe in Sylvania brand, its part number is 37-A, and comes in a pack of 2 for less than $3. I just had to change mine last weekend.
