There are multiple kinds of LED replacement out there for different use but if you just want to replace the existing 194LL with a whiter light and not necessarily a lot brighter I have found as close to a perfect replacement as I think possible.

These are almost the exact same size as the bulb but are still polarity dependant. Probably not enough room for a bridge rectifier on the circuit board. They are flanked with LEDs on both sides. They are also very cheap to buy. They work well when size and length matters.



I got these on

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/10-x-LED-T10-194-168-W5W-COB-8SMD-CANBUS-Silica-Bright-White-License-Light-Bulbs/332433160156?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I will show pictures of each one 2 inches from the LUX meter at X10 scale, these should all read between 1000 and 4000 lux even if they advertise more.

A 194LL gives out the lowest intensity at 1000 Lux/2"



This one


Almost double @ 1860 Lux/2"


This one is over 4 times





This one was the brightest but is a dual flank and sends barely any light from the end.





This one although only 3 times as bright has 2 LED on the end and produces light all the way around, but I found these not very reliable or durable.





This is also a very good replacement but more money...

Going to order some 3156 bulbs if you've had good luck with them

Are they simply plug and play?

Yes, but you may have to flip some of these because LEDs are polarity dependant.
