What bulb goes in the heater controls light socket?

My light bulb is missing from the heater controls. I unplugged the grey wire that leads to the socket only to find it empty.

Its different then the dash size.

Thanks!

Bulb is an 1895. Looks like a mini 1157.

I've got the new 1895 bulb but I need a socket to put it into. Any suggestions on where to find one? Thanks

Should be able to get one at any auto parts store or salvage yard. (out of an older vehicle) Manes truck parts would have it also. (8100 State Hwy WW, Odessa, MO 64076)

Thanks LockDoc. Ron Manes doesn't have any in stock. Mrs Manes said Ron would keep his eyes pealed for one on an old heater/ac control unit.

Wow! I know they have a lot of stuff on hand, or did the last time I was there. You also have Classic Parts in the Riverside area. (out by the Argosy Casino)

Re: What bulb goes in the heater controls light socket?

I found that BA9S style bulbs fit and work. They make LED ones too.
Trouble I'm having is my bulbs burn out after 20 min of installing them?

Should I be using something other than 12v? Is there a resistor somewhere? Not that I need the light, but it's there so I'd like to have it work.

It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Does the gray wire head to the fuse box and inserted in “cluster”. I have a gray wire that is cut and my light that goes to heater is cut at base.

There is a gray wire from the fuse box that is connected to the Pnl Lts fuse and it runs to the cluster plug to power the instrument lights. There should be another wire connected there with it that continues on to the heater panel for the heater indicator panel light.

Thank you VetteVet. I am currently switching my cluster from 3 hole to 7 hole and have read and screen shot several of your conversations. You my friend are invaluable to this site. Thank you for your expertise on these wonderful C10 trucks that we all love.
