Good afternoon, Does anyone know where to get the circuitboard lights for the Rubicon lockers switch ? I searched the web and came up blank. Or for you more savvy electronics guys, what led replacements would work ? thanks 🙂

That's weird, the other light looks like it's an LED and the burned out one is incandescent. You need to power up the board and measure the voltage at that lamp base. Just wondering if they are using that lamp for some kind of ballast resistance - there's got to be a reason they just didn't put an LED in that place. Maybe an LED wasn't bright enough? Thinking out loud here.

Small LEDs typically have a current limit of 15 to 25 milliamps, you can probably get by with a 1k resistor in series with the LED if you go with that route - depends on the voltage at the board. Different resistor for 5V vs. 12V.

Good find on the bulb but it looks like a standard bulb not one to be soldered onto a board. I don't have any experience so maybe wrong.

This might work, got it off of Wrangler TJ Forum

that looks good Katswuy, the bulb I found was $88.

I find soldering difficult and soldering on a board out of my league. But always trying to improve, this thread got me to search for soldering on a board and found this how to and sounds like a kid.


Hey maybe if this was my project I could do this

I was almost born with a soldering iron in my hands.

One secret of soldering on a circuit board is to start with the appropriate tools. This is a 35 buck soldering iron station that I used for a couple of years until I upgraded to a high-end Hakko model. It works quite well and the temperature is adjustable for delicate work or larger stuff. Use good quality rosin solder, I just bought a pound roll of .6 mm Kester solder - made in the USA.

You can buy some practice soldering kits on Fleabay or Amazon, that would help build skills.
