Question need some help, headlight question for a 96 LS400

hello,

I need some help about the bulbs in the headlamp. I changed the H4 bulbs to super whites, but when i put my lights on there is another bulb that is on too and its a yellowish colour. I checked the manual and that bulb is not listed. Anyone know the complete bulb listings for a LS400 1996? I think i'll change every bulb to super whites so it matches.

thanks

If its in the headlight assembly, it is your fog lamp. I belive they are H3 bulbs.

That's your driving lights.
The switch is located on the turn signal half way down the arm. Turn it clockwise for on and counter clockwise for off. The only way to access those bulbs is through the corner markers. Take out the corner markers and reach your hand behind it.
# 9006.

Default side marker lights in super white?

my '95 is the same with the driving lights and the headlights. I replaced the headlights to super white, but havn't done the driving lights yet. My question is, does anyone have any ideas about making the side marker lights super white? I have asked here around town, I mean, and have been told SOL. Hate the look of the bright white headlights and dingy-er white marker lights to the side.

Mike,
he's referring to the side marker lights a.k.a corner lights right next to the headlights, not the turn signals in the bumper.
They do sell clear white bulbs for those, we went over that in the beginning of this thread.
Bulb #168

I have a 921's installed in my corners. I forget the wattage yet I want to say it is abouty 5 watts brighter over the 194's.

Thought you might want to see what it looked like before the 'parking' lite change !!!!!
It is difficult to believe this is the stock 4 watt 194 bulb !!!! looks like a fog lite.
