Just watch what bulb you do put in. A lot of people take the gauge panel apart, and look at the bulb and right away think it is the 194 that is used on the outside turn signals. It is the same bulb, but they make it in a dozen or so different brightnessess. The dash takes one that is not as bright ( also read not as hot). Using the 194, often leads to the dash gauge assmebly melting, sometimes it is just the colored cover, other times it is the spot where the bulb mounts.
