Default Looking for some 3157 bulbs (ky)

Not looking to spend a lot of cash here, but I'd like to find a handful of # 3157 dual element bulbs... used in turn signals/brake lights, etc.



They don't even need to light up, I basically need the base part that plugs into the bulb sockets.

If anyone has some laying around that you're gonna throw away, let me know.

Just looked in my parts boxes & found there's a couple different bases...
The Sylvania bases on the left are the type I'm looking for

Wish I would have seen this sooner. I just replaced one on my Ranger last week, and I've changed a couple on my wife's Edge within the last year.

Anyway, the 3157 and the 4157 are interchangeable, but you can't find the 3157 in stores -- only the 4157.

Bump.

Thought this thread needed a bump.



I'm still in need of some 3156, 3157, 3456, 3457, 7440, 7443 or any similar numbered bulb with the large t20/t25 bases like the ones in the pic with the smiley face.

Brand doesn't matter as long as they're the same plastic base style. They can be the 3156 single element or the 3157 dual element style bases, I'll need both types.

They DO NOT have to work at all, I only need the plastic bases for some ULTRA cool led plug-ins I've had in mind for a while now... but I need a bunch of bulb bases to start with & I don't have any

I'd be glad to do some horse trading for some led's or other mods if you have a big bunch of these that you don't need.

hey would my 99 ranger have these??? I recently replaced one of my blinker tail lights, not sure if it's the same bulb tho.


Can't u find these in the store tho???
Just curious, seems like if they are like $5 in a store, it would probably be the same as shipping cost for someone to ship to you??

Anyway, I will try to find my old one if I didn't toss it.

I would love to switch my tail lights over to leds tho, lol

Your '99 should have the 3157 style bulbs in the turn signals & tail lights.

The projects I have in mind for these are gonna use a lot of the bases & even if I found the cheap no-name bulbs for $4 a pair, it would add more to the total cost & I'd have to raise the price of them too much

Shipping just the plastic connectors (once the wires are un-bent & the bulbs pulled out) should be pretty cheap, maybe $2 for a big handful of them

I already used all the old bulbs from my tail lights on the first prototypes and now I don't have any working bulbs in case one of my led's were to go out

Also, I'm not sure what different brands of bulbs will have the entire plastic bases like the sylvania's. Just happened that all my bulbs were sylvania's & that one odd wagner.

Shipping shouldn't be that much if placed in a padded envelope and sent U.S.P.S. Less than $2 or $3, and less if the bulb isn't attached. I would hit up other forums, like www.explorerforum.com, which seems pretty active.
