Does anyone know what they are called or where to buy new ones? The tiny pin style bulbs in the center of the cluster. Warning lights for the OXS, Oil, High beams, turn signals etc.

Maybe sitting around so much today has limited blood flow to my eyes but I'm not seeing the dash warning light bulbs in the van-cafe links.

@ the OP. If you buy aftermarket LED's (what other kind is there these days?), make sure they're not the type meant for flashlights and what not. Unless I got my resistor values incorrect, they're REALLY bright even with a resistor in series.

Odd - it must be your eyes! They both worked just fine here.

You can navigate there yourself - go to the VC website, choose your year, and then it's 'Body Electrical'/'Instrument Cluster'.

im not seeing them on there either?

i only see the twist in bulbs for lighting the cluster area, not the warning lights.

(i need to buy a couple more warning LEDs myself)

They are all the same, just in different locations. GoWesty had them in Red, Blue and Green as well as the original white.

I use the Red for the backlighting of the symbols instead of the white.

The LED's work nicely in daylight.

I read this as the OP is looking for the idiot light LEDs. All I see on the Van Cafe links provided the little incandescents used to illuminate the cluster.

But my brain is kinda soft now.

The indicator lights are standard 5mm LEDs which were common in the 80s, except the high beam indicator as blue LEDs were not available at that time. That is a small bulb.
