I was replacing the bulbs in my dash with led bulbs and found this bulb that is not listed anywhere.
There are 2 of them in the center dash where the heat controls are.
1 is located behind the Cargo light button area and the other is behind the 4 wheel drive buttons.
I would like to replace these as well because with led bulbs behind the heat control they are not visible unless I turn the brightness all the way up.
The bulb is attached to the green part and are not removable.
2004 Tundra Access Cab.
Thank you for the help.

Should be able to pull that bulb out and put a #74 LED in there.

Given the grey color of that bulb holder, if you compare that bulb size with the others in similar size, does it seem to be slightly larger. The reason I ask is because on my 2004, the fuel indicator has a grey color holder, is a A14V3 and the others in the Instrument Cluster are black. Also, if that is indeed the fuel indicator bulb, I was told it's better to leave that as an incandescent.

Another important note: You'll almost 100% surely wind up with one extra amber LED. Why? Because the low fuel indicator NEEDS a regular incandescent bulb. I put the LED in there and the light is ALWAYS ON! The sending unit from the fuel tank must supply a low voltage all the time... not enough to light up the old bulb, but you stick an LED in there and it sees that residual voltage and that's enough for a dim light to show up.
