Default 93 Lexus SC300 Correct Gauge Cluster bulbs & Factory part numbers


The path to finding the correct bulbs for my 93 SC300 5 speed gauge cluster was a hassle! I searched this thread the net and talked to four Lexus Parts guys and still couldn't solve the puzzle and I get parts guys are interested in selling body parts not small bulbs. A Club Lexus member Texrud recommended Jerald Cooksey Parts Specialist at Park Place Lexus Grapevine #817.416.3277. Jerald took the time review pic's I emailed him and we solved the puzzle..A huge Thanks and shout out to Gerald for his Top Notch Professionalism, and quick customer service!

Here is the break down

Green sockets part # 83101-24010
Bulbs for green sockets part # 83119-24570 Ambient /abs /oil
Black and blue socket bulbs part # 90981-11018,.. Seat belt /battery /oil air /bag brake / rear tail light windshield washer / engine / turn signals /high beams /doors / brake/ air bag
Grey socket bulbs part# 83119-32010 Gas light.
Upgrade black and blue has green lining bulb part # 8310-24040 Not shown

Tabs for front of cluster part # 83179-24010

Thank you for doing all this research and posting!

At one time maybe eight years ago I had bought some of the correct bulb part numbers but never wrote them all down! Now I just so happen to need to buy a new set of them myself and saw your thread

Indeed getting the correct bulb part number info from Lexus is NOT straightforward as you found out. That was also my experience. Now though it probably has something to do with the internal dealer Toyota/Lexus parts database being updated just a couple of years back. The first source of our original 1990's SC parts diagrams originate from the very end of the microfiche era after all!

Excellent work!!

I totally get that they are a pain to look up, especially trying to coordinate them with what they go with.
Here's a diagram to go with

As well as the other bulb numbers in another thread that has the backlight bulbs as well as linked above (and that one has pics of the packages too). Search button would have saved a lot of time

I had found the thread you linked and although a correct part # was offered, even the poster was not positive of the part#. Another member posted you can by them at parts store, not true..Seemed to leave a lot of information to be desired...reason for me starting this thread..

So, for the cluster, if I am reading your post right, there are only 2 types of bulbs for the 4/5 types of colored sockets? What type of bulb is required for the grey sockets? Btw, thanks for doing the research

Grey socket bulbs part # 83119-32010 is the gas light. Bulb part # 83119-32010 is a stand alone bulb out of the entire cluster of bulbs..

Default Speedometer Tachometer Gas and Temperature lights are NOT bulbs

Speedometer / Tachometer / Gas and Temperature lights are NOT bulbs and are attached to the back of the Dash display...I do not think these can be repaired..a cluster with working Speedometer / Tachometer / Gas and Temperature lights can be disassembled and reassemble into cluster with the digital odometer from matching car.

I think a working cluster needs to be found to fix this issue


I do nothing think these can be repaired.

^^ If you mean that the lights for those gauges are located as soldered-on LEDs ON the gauge assemblies themselves then probably the only way to repair them is to de-solder and re-solder the bulbs from the circuit board on each. Tanin Auto does this I am sure. Huh... I had previously assumed that all of the cluster backlighting was achieved by all those removable bulbs.

Just to be clear, you aren't referring to the red lit NEEDLES on each gauge, right? Because those are a special fix and Tanin Auto is definitely the place to send them to for any reconditioning of the specialized gauge needle lighting. If this is what you meant then you are spot-on correct: they have no bulbs to replace. They have to be rebuilt.

I'm not searching for it, because i don't need it, but as mentioned the thread with all the bulbs and pics of bags like this one was done similar timeframe back in the day. Point as noted above, would have saved you some time based on your words.

Whether you reposted or not, not relevant. Lotta people don't search so it'll still help the persons here "in the moment".
