I thought that this could be useful for somebody who doesn't have a manual or who can't find it when they need it re: burned out bulb replacement.

Well this is embarassing. I post the 56 Dodge bulb list months ago and discover today (June 6/18) that it doesn't list the Emergency Brake "ON!!" warning light bulb. Anybody happen to know what it is? Needs to be a two contact, single filament with a non-bulbous glass bit.

Could be a 1004 like this one but I am not sure. My dome light bulb was gone when I got the car and the map light is too difficult to get at to steal the bulb to try in the eBrake warning light lamp holder.

Hmm...still need an answer on the eBrake warning light bulb. I just went out and bought a package of two 1004 bulbs. Base is sort of right, single filament, *BUT* the metal lip is a bit too big and the glass part is definitely too big.

I can use the bulbs for my dome light so no loss (not much cost anyway) but it doesn't solve my problem - lack of eBrake warning light.

Anybody?

What I bought:

The next size down from a 1004 would be 5 watt.
I'd suggest the bulb will be a 12822CP (Phillips part no)
Base BA15D
12 Volt
5 Watt
This is a 15mm base bulb and typically the dash bulbs are only 9mm base. This seems too big for its purpose.
My warning light has a Phillips 12929 bulb.
Base BA9s
12 volt
4 watt

12929 is the right shape but only one contact and too small On the other hand, the Philips 12822CP is the right shape and it has two BA15D contacts. WINNER!! Thanks very much! Now to find one (two)

Tried a 1004 yesterday. And a "90" today. Both have too much glass "flare". It needs to be straight like this:

Thanks to George B. and Gary P., fellow 56 Dodge owners, they checked their eBrake warning light bulbs and both said "90". George said "GE90" and sent a photo showing the bulb.

So based on George's photo of the bulb, I went out to one of our local car parts stores and asked for a "GE 90" two pin, single filament, bulb. I was shown the rack of GE bulbs and found a GE90 straight away. Looked right so I bought it. Two bulbs for $1.50 CDN (including taxes). Good stuff. See attached.

When I got home, I tried to put it in. Problems. The holder is so deep that once I get the bulb in, I don't have enough purchase on the glass bit to turn it enough to lock it in on the two pins. I tried needle-nosed pliers but nope.

So for the short term, I just put it and installed the cover, bezel, etc. It works. But since the bulb is currently touching the plastic lens, it will melt the plastic if I forget to release the brake for very long. Strangely, the light is on even with the key in the accessory position. See attached wiring diagram - I though that the bulb would only be on when the ignition is in RUN and the brake is on, not with ACCESSORY (radio, etc).

Bottomline: I seek opinions as to how to turn this GE 90 bulb and lock it in.

UPDATE: My neighbour lent me a 1/2" diameter suction cup (originally from some toy) which I used to turn the bulb and lock it in.

Now I just need to change the wiring so the bulb doesn't come on on ACC, just RUN.
