Default What bulb can I use to replace the dome light in a 2000 Honda Civic LX Sedan?


I have been meaning to replace my dome light in my 2000 Civic LX, its a stock bulb and dim enough that I can't really see my floor. I wish to get a bulb that is brighter and instead of a yellow light to have a white one. I pulled out the bulb and it had the letters A125W transcribed in it. I believe that is the bulb type & watts.

Anyways I was also looking for replacement parts' model #s on

On that website it states that the bulb size for the Roof/dome light is DE3022 or DE3175...that being said, since I know that my original bulb is of only 5watts, how do I find a bulb that won't use too much energy to ruin my dome light socket?

Also I plan to order one via

Thanks to anyone who answers! And I shall vote the best answer to the user who answers my question and possibly can provide a useful line.

If the DE3022 / DE3175 is the correct bulb then the DE3175 is the highest wattage incandescent bulb in that style at 10 watts. I would recommend the DE3175 in an LED version which will be brighter and illuminate at a cooler temperature, they can be found anywhere on the internet.
