Interior light

I have a 2012 Escape 19.
How do I know what kind of interior light "bulbs" I have so I can find them online to replace?



I want to find some that are dim, and preferably have a red color.

Here is a picture of what I have. It is attached with a screw, and is a flat plate.

If you are looking for "red" output, a simple method is to insert a piece of red Roscolux in the fixture. This is a material designed for coloring theatrical lights, is flexible, and can withstand high temperatures.

While this may not be what you are looking for, a modification I did for the bathroom light in my 21 was to add a red LED inside the fixture. It is always on (only draws 10ma) and works well as a night light.

A source for colored 12V LEDs.

Thank you both


When I look up wedge type bulbs, there seem to be several different ones. Will they all fit into the fixture?
