Looked in the parts catalog at work... you could try a #168. Same voltage and same socket, but slightly more wattage (4.9W vs. 3.8W for the #194.)Beware of the extra heat... I wouldn"t use it in the dash lights, for example. Those are usually #161 which are lower wattage...

Thanks for the info!
If the hole in the lamp assy allows, a 912 (little brighter) or a 921 (a lot brighter) can be used, BUT these bulbs will melt the socket if used for more than intermittent use (trust me). They are the 3rd brake lamp bulbs used in many of my trucks and are WAAAYYYY brighter but run WAAAAYYYY hotter. What are you trying to brighten up??? They do have a larger globe but the same bottom.
Its not like I said I enjoyed reading Good Housekeeping while taking a candle lit bubble bath then proceeding to using a loofah with exfoliating creams all while thinking about you . Now THAT would be creepy :HiHi:
why not use led bulbs. they are definately brighter and do not give nearly as much heat as regular bulbs.

x2.Where are you trying to add more light?I"ve fit the 921"s in the spot of rear corner marker lights on my old car, and they def. run ALOT hotter. Within about 3 minutes I could smell plastic.

x2 on LED. I"ve seen some in cars and seen them on ebay. Brighter without the heat, LED is the way to go.

I did the footwell lighting and used a standard 194 socket. It is not enclosed but the bulb is below the socket (holder). Essentially it is mounted upside down. Do you think the heat from a 168 or W5W will be a problem. I"ll try to find LED versions as well - I assume they will be designated 194LED?
