Default visor lights

when i purchased my 94 bonneville, both lights on the visors dont work. to my surprise, it looks like the bulbs are old school fuses ? is that what they are ? or is this a dealer item ?


thanks

I am not sure what bulb they actually are, but they are not fuses. Usually those lights are not at fault, because they are used so little. I would be inclined to check the switches and other wiring, as those have a tendency to get finicky after 15 years or so.

Same problem, ive got a 92 Bonneville ssei, the visor lights wont work i don't think they've ever been used since ive had the car... The seat settings on the passenger side don't work either, so im thinking i have a big wiring problem..

It'* bulb 563

You can get it here: http://bulbster.com/lightbulbs/563-p...FYXc4AodsClPrw

Or take the bulb with you to Advance or Auto Zone and they probably have it.

Moved to Bonneville Mechanical/Electrical for better visibilty and search indexing.

Light bulbs and fuses test similarly: grab a multimeter and check the resistance from end to end. Infinite resistance and it'* blown. Anything else and it should be working.
