You can get LED bulbs to replace your halogen bulbs. They will share the same number.
I upgraded the dome light, map lights, and dash lights in my 1996 Ford Ranger with Sylvania LED bulbs. I avoided the cheap Amazon LED bulbs. Some of those cheap LED’s don’t have a record of lasting very long before they start to go bad and flicker. The last thing I want to do is have to take my instrument cluster back out to replace them. Here is a comparison between a 192 dome light bulb and a 192 LED bulb.
