Heater Light?

Tearing apart my heaters control panel and noticed the wiring to my heater light (lights up the Def, Fan and Heat rectangular panel) was cut very very close and I cant crimp back to it. Does anyone sell this piece? ClassicParts doesnt seem to. This is on a standard heater 1970

Re: Heater Light?

I'd have to get under the dash and look, but I think it's lit with a small bulb (1445, 1545?), I'll be under there tomorrow and can confirm. Unless of course one of the experts chimes in before

The bulb and socket should pull out, it just snaps into the housing....

The wiring to it is cut way too short to use. I need a replacement.

Here it is in the LMC catalog

The bulb is supposed to be an 1895 bulb.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Heater Light?

I was in that same boat but for mine it was a little different. The wire just broke off of the part that was crimped. What I did was disassemble the plug and slide some heat shrink on the wire and solder it back together.

Re: Heater Light?

Find a standard socket (old style) like an 1157 brake light/turn signal, the older ones have the brass contact crimped onto the wire, they will usually pull right out the front of the socket...
