Hey guys the bulb in my key broke. I still have my 625a battery and its working fine. I am unable to put in an LED because they require around 3.5V and the 625a cell that fits in the key puts out only 1.5V so does anyone know where to buy just the bulb? Pretty much anything with a 5mm with that takes 1.5V. LED's don't cut it. I have the key like the one in this auction but I do not want to pay $20 for the entire unit when I can get a bulb for like $2.

Thank you.

why bother fixing the key light? it's pretty much useless. you should just buy some proton light. you can find some cheap ones at walgreens or target stores.
