Looking for replacement, recessed cabin lights...

Good Evening folks!

I'm looking for replacement, recessed cabin lights... the problem I'm having is that I'd like them to be similar to my old ones and have individual toggle switches to turn them on/off vs turning them off as a series.

I've attached a photo of one of my current lights for reference.
Ignoring the trim ring, the portion that sits outside the headliner is 2-3/4" dia. and the portion that fits into the recess is 2" dia.



Does anyone know where the heck I might be able to find something similar and preferably of the LED variety (current lights are halogen)

As always, Thank you!

Re: Looking for replacement, recessed cabin lights...

Consider the question closed folks.

I found that the problem with the cabin lights were the mini toggle switches themselves. Seems 4 of them decided to quit at the same time.

I found similar sized switches at radio shack, cut off all the old ones and soldered in the new ones - presto! Cabin lights!

Now I can look for LED replacements at my leisure... might even give the funky G4 LED thingies a shot!

Anyway, thanks for reading & trying to help... greatly appreciated!

For what it's worth, I finally replaced my energy hungry & heat producing G4 halogen bulbs with these nifty LED replacement bulbs! That's 340 watts of power consumption down to 25.5 watts and they work great!



If you're interested, these are the ones I purchased:

Thank you a64pilot - Yep, looks like they have them!
"Recessed 3" G4 LED Puck Light Fixture - Brass or Chrome Finish (FX-G4-10)"

I no longer need them, but at least I now know where to get them if these continue to fail.

Appreciated!
