Anybody know what type of bulb to buy for the entry door "security" light (same as for the one above the utility bay on driver's side)? Left the coach in another country and didn't bring the bulb to do a replacement check. Thanks.

I believe Wyane is correct in the #1141 bulb. The Lighted Handle is a #57

Mike,
my coach is out front right now. (getting it loaded for DRR) I will check in the morning what the bulb is. (I'd do it now but it's already down to 34 degrees ) Will let you know tomorrow if someone else doesnt post before then.

Hello Mike:

Just to let you know that an #1156 Bulb will also work as that is what I replaced mine with.

All:

I just wanted to make a correction, before anyone drives too far out of the way to buy the wrong light bulb. Especially since this forum has become a bit of a "bible" for DIY'er Alpine owners.

My grab handle uses a #194 mini-wedge base. The #57 bulb is a bayonet base and will not work on my 2003.

Upside, either costs only about 49 cents.

When ours burned out, it was a #1295. We went with a #1141.

I can't believe that we actually got the opportunity to answer a question presented by E. Mike. Are we gaining in stature or is he just making us feel good during the holidays.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL

The security or scare light uses a bulb with a BA15 bayonet base with a single contact. There are lots of bulbs with this base that will work in the light. The difference is in the amount of amperage used and the related light output. They come with a 1295 bulb, which has a 3 amp draw and lots of light output. (And a short life span!) The 1141 uses half the amps and puts out half the light. The light output of the 1156 is in the middle somewhere, and the life expectancy is much longer. The longer life expectancy would probably make it a better choice, depending on the light output you want and how much you like changing burned out bulbs.

Many of these bulbs have a wedge base equivalent, which are used in modern cars in place of the bayonet based bulbs. Often these have similar numbers, such as with the same last two digits with taillight bulbs.

MIKE, it would appear that you have at least 14-15 options of bulbs. I would arm yourself with about $ 40 bucks and hit the local Pep Boys or whatever. If you get one or two of each you can definitely not strike out. If all else fails , call me.

Ted
