One of the bulbs burnt out on my trunk lights or the lights to illuminate the license plate. Does anyone have the part number for the bulb or know a size that will work I can find at a hardware store? I doubt it matters but it's the passenger side.

Did a search and was only able to come up with this thread: http://www.mazda-speed.com/forum2/index.php/topic,28757.0.html
Thanks,

I just took one off and went to my flaps. They have a bunch of similar ones. I actually bought one with amber tint on them. Looks awesome at night.
As what bulb # it was, sorry but I just can't recall.

The license plate bulbs are 194's.  Why not upgrade to LEDs while you're at it? http://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/led-vehicle-replacement-bulbs/vehicle/2005-mazda-mx%205%20miata--license+plate/36-776--312125/page/1/

I switched to LEDs in my dome light as well, love them.

I burned one of those out too, I just went to a local ricer store, and they looked up the size and sold me a pair of LED replacements.  Had them on for over 2 years already, still shining.

These are the ones I picked up for the license plate lights…
http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/miniature-wedge-base/194-led-bulb-5-smd-led-wide-angle-wedge-base/206/

This is the one I have in my dome light.  The are both definitely brighter than the stock bulbs, and they look great.

Sweet! Just ordered LED replacements.


Have any of you guy's replaced your brake light bulbs with leds? How about the rear turn signals? Where can I find these?

First thing I did to my car was change the license plate/dome light* and Moss console lights to leds.

In addition to looking better than incandescent lights...leds draw much less current and run cooler.  I still have the oem battery in my car.  If I'm working on or about my car, the leds don't seem to stress the battery if I have a door or the trunk open. 

*the next thing I did was take the clear dome light lens from my na and put it on the msm.  I never understood the idea of the smoked dome lens on na/nb's

It's funny how these cars are all going through the same things at about the same time.  One of my plate bulbs blew last week.  This weekend I dropped two LED bulbs in from my box o' spare crap from cars gone by.  One thing I like is that LEDs consume such little power, I'm far more comfortable with my trunk left open for extended periods.

Last week I accidentally left the trunk not open but apparently not latched completely with the license plate leds on.  24 hrs later my original Mazda battery had run down.  A couple of hours with the Battery Tender on and all was well.  I thought that the led draw was minimal but this is the original battery (that I'm trying to nurse through another winter.
