Thanks to John at BigM, I was able to pickup an E-brake light & switch for the car as well as a map light and the rest of the pad trim. The red lens is a little melted from the previous bulb, but it's livable. I haven't figured out what bulb it needs yet. It has 2 contacts on it, which is weird for a single sensor light. Anyone have a recommendation for a bulb or preferably a red LED light to put into here?

Most probably it's an insulated BA9s receptacle with one 12VDC power lead and one ground lead that Close the Circuit via the emergency brake switch.


I would mount a red BA9s LED - then you can forget all about high temperature, for instance https://www.amazon.com/BA9S-LED-Bulb-Auto-Accessory/dp/B008QDLFD4

I think that the issue with the melted lens is because the factory wired the warning light so it comes on in both ACC and RUN. So if you were sitting with the car and/or engine stopped in Neutral and eBrake engaged and the key turned to ACC so you could listen to the radio while you worked on the engine (or in the trunk), the eBrake warning light would be on the hole time = incandescent heat = melted plastic.

I went through looking for a replacement bulb for mine and found that it was a standard GE 90. That said, I am looking at a) re-wiring the eBrake warning light so it is only powered in the RUN position of the ignition, NOT ACC and b) looking for that BA9s LED bulb that Sven pointed out.

This is what I bought in the meantime:

Thanks Sven & Dave. The GE 90 definitely looks like the correct bulb with 2 contacts on it, but the BA9s doesn't look like it will work because it only has one contact. So looks like we need a different LED than that one.

The GE 90 is a BA15D bulb, hence bigger in diameter (15mm) than a BA9s (9mm).

Check the diameter first and if the receptacle has two poles (D) or one pole (S)

It looks like 1178 or 1142 are other numbers with similar specifications. The trick is to get an LED that is short enough to fit. This one looks like it should work for this purpose. I am going to purchase a pair of them and give them a try. Hopefully they aren't garbage production versions like a lot of these things built with superior Chinese quality assurance.

This one may be another possibility. I tend to trust these older LEDs for quality more than the newer 5050 die versions. We don't care about side lighting in this application so this may work out well. They also have white versions, but we don't really need that for this. So I change my mind. I think I will buy these instead. Don't know what I am going to do with the green one....
