Default Need to replace interior stock bulbs [[Upgrade]]

I own a 98 Bonne'ville SE & right now im soon to finish up the rest of the work as far as painting wise goes inside my car.Just a few more peices have to be finished air vents & the handles on the headliner area etc...etc.Well once that is completed and out of my way i want to work on getting all my stock bulbs taken out and changed to hyper-white LED bulbs.But the problem is i dont even know where to start to find out the bulb sizes that are in my car for the dome lights,lights in my doors panels,ones that are on them handles on headliner etc you get what im saying.Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction with some kinda of chart or significant info that shows exactly what i need so i can get the all squared away and figure out what sizes are the bulbs i need so i can take out those dim stock bulbs..Thanks alot

Thanks for posting this. Internet and autoparts searches for my '94 Olds LSS are showing the 194 bulb for under hood. Either I am missing something in the housing (I cant figure out how a a 194 would plug in?), or this 561 bulb is correct. Can anyone confirm the correct bulb part # and # of bulbs that go into the under hood light housing in my car? Thanks.

Cool Pics

Sorry about the cruddy pics -- the focus on my phone'* camera is acting up. The housing is shown unplugged and still bolted underneath my hood.

The 194 bulbs are just little glass 'bubbles' with no metal parts except for thefilament. The 561 bulb is a long tubular bulb with a wire 'loop' on each end. Seems a much more likely candidate.

I just done a quick search, and I found that the 561 bulb was used.

Thanks, Travis. I guess this post is a heads up for folks in the future that get the incorrect bulb listed as a replacement.

You're welcome. Its too bad that you bought the wrong bulbs, but I'm sure they won't go a stray.

Autozone has these,


the adapters fit in most any auto bulb socket. I used the blue ones in my Toyota Matrix. I'm getting ready to do a full conversion in the Park Ave.
