Did mine on 06, ordered Honda bulbs which were already mounted in the little plastic holders. Done in less than an hour including finding tools and cleanup. Good chance to tighten/fix the power outlet that always gets loose.

Thanks for the help. Looks like quite a project for a weekend day. Have you replaced the bulbs before? Any suggestions for not having the nylon pry tools?
Took me an hour total. Not hard but make sure the new bulbs are in correct sockets. Btw you need 2 different build styles
I have the same issue. Approximately five or six bulbs blown out.

Can you tell me where you purchased the bulbs? And can you tell me what the two different sizes are?

For 06, I used:
6​
79670-S9V-A01 {Unshipped}
Honda BULB, NEO-WEDGE (14V 40MA)​
$3.65​
$21.90​

The bulbs are different between some model years, look up your year at:

pick vehicle and year, then Electrical, then Heater Control

The parts diagram is a little confusing but I think it will show either item 5, 6, or 10 in the parts listed depending on which your vehicle year takes. You can call the seller for help if you need.

My 06 took (6) of the part number I listed. These bulbs are premounted in the holders, better than bare bulbs you can buy for less.

I have (3) of the ..SL0.. bulbs listed for sale on Ebay if anyone needs them. I thought it would need them but 06 only used the S9V bulbs

Are they dimmable? Especially if they're "super bright," there may be occasions when that's preferred. :)

Anybody who works on their car in any way should invest in plastic trim removal tools. I got mine on Amazon for about $10

I have an '05 EXL RES and I've got 5 button lights on the climate control panel that are burnt out (fan up and down, defrost etc.). I have an Accord and you pop the face of the button off and it is servicable. I tried a small screwdriver and was afraid to pry any harder. Any help would be much apreciated.
I have an '07 (240K miles) with most of the lights out - I figured I knew my car enough to feel for it (when it's dark) rather than pulling out the column or worse - paying the dealer $300 to replace all the lights. thought was it wasn't worth it vs. the value of the car.

I just replaced the bulbs in the heater control module. I purchased six bulbs for $1.98 and $8.00 for shipping(!!!!) and then followed a YouTube video to replace the bulbs.
If you buy the whole thing (plastic base and bulbs, they are around $4.00 each.
Look at YouTube. It is pretty simple to do it yourself, just don’t rush the job
Buy bulbs at:

I bought the raw bulbs from Mouser Electronics, Mouser # 560-7219.

43 cents each if you buy 10, and shipping was about $8.

The rear A/C control bulb is slightly larger, look for Mouser # 560-DW07 and their 53 cents each if you buy 10.

These bulbs are a little brighter than stock, but if all are replaced it’s not noticeable.

Edit: the 7219 bulb is a 12V bulb, the 8111 is also available and is rated for 14V but I’ve never used it. It may be too bright.

Edit 2: the stock, old bulbs that still worked measured about 30 to 33 ohms. The 7219’s measure about 14 ohms. There is a data sheet link available that shows other bulbs that are made, but Mouser didn’t carry them.
