1998 S70 Dome light near rear view, LED replacement

Post by Cvovo7 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 8:12 pm

Hello does anyone know if we can upgrade to a lead bulb in interior lights or colored bulbs if possible. It seems these dome lights are hard to find. Any recommendations would help. Thanks 1998 volvo s70 base model

I used Cool White SMD 5050 led light panels on my '98 C70. Lots of light, nice color.

Last I went shopping for lights, I believe Philips made LEDs that were direct replacement for the dome lights, license plate light, and turn signal/ brake lights.

You are taking about the Map light which is a 2825 bulb? That is a T10 base.

20X Ice Blue T10 8-SMD LED 2825 194. Set of 20 for $6.59.

10X Ice Blue T10 Wedge 5-5050SMD W5W 168 194 2825 175 LED Interior Light bulbs. $6.69

Keep searching for "Ice Blue T10 5050" find a configuration that works best and check the dimensions.

Well the 2825 bulb doesn't have the little side nipples on it. The original bulbs are push in and twists. Theses bulbs are just push in the sockets. These have off set nipples for connection when twisted
