Yep both have cruse control. And both cars have full function of CC before and after the LED's. I can post the type of bulbs but were some high rated ones off Amazon.

OK. And please do that. I will buy that type, that you bought, as soon as I need to replace my OEM HMBL bulbs. I have never checked to see exactly how many of my original(?) HMBL bulbs are/are not working. I will do that soon. I bought this 2004 car in 2013 and maybe some were replaced previously.

I like the idea of moving from incandescent to LED for the HMBL. If you remember, how many bulb slots are on the HMBL? 6? 8? 10? 1000?

Thanks!

Hope that the fixture is not totally melted there, the issue I've seen is that the incandescent bulbs have too much heat and pulling the assembly resulted in lots of crumbling/broken parts that are really not fit to reinstall again.

Now you guys got me wondering if my cruise works on an earlier model, I use it so rarely it may not and I wouldn't know it. I changed one car to an LED light there that was already rigged for 12 volt. Car is down now for long term maintenance so I can't tell.

The 4 door at least to '05 thinking; mine has 5 bulb positions there. The replacement one I bought did not say '02 but it fit perfectly.

Sorry for the late follow up.

Here is the link to the amazon bulbs I got. http://a.co/63krszx

"Yorkim 194 T10 LED Light Bulbs for Car Interior Lights, License Plate Lights, Parking, Turn Signal and Corner Lights – W5W 194 168 2825 T10 Wedge 5-SMD 5050, 6th Generation (Pack of 10) - White"

Use CC in my SVT multiple times a day and have the rear brake bar swapped out with these. Only thing I had to do was take apart the reflector also out of the rear red housing and install the bulbs into the strip through the reflector. The LED's are just a hair larger total outside diameter and they would not go through the hols in the reflector.

Cruise needs brake pedal switches, a module under the hood, and a separate cable to the throttle to work.
