2015 Chrysler 200 Map Lights
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
Gently Pry Out Lens Cover
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chrysler 200 sedan in changing a burnt out map light bulb in the overhead console attached to the headliner.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement miniature wedge base light bulb part number is 2825 (or W5W).

There also brighter 2825 LED bulb options available.

The only tool needed to access and change the map light bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Lens Cover Removed
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Old Light Bulb Removed
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, I recommend either covering the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth or use a plastic pry bar tool.

Insert the blade of your tool in between the front edge of the lens cover (near the windshield) and gently pry it out.

You may need to re-insert the tool in to the outer edge of the lens cover and pry again to fully remove the lens cover.

Try to avoid using excessive force.

The lens cover should pop out relatively easily.

Be careful when you remove the old light bulb. If it was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Grasp the old light bulb with your thumb and forefinger before pulling it straight out of the socket.

Push In New Light Bulb
Press "On/Off" Switch
Testing New Light Bulb


Push a new miniature wedge base bulb such as the 2825 (also known as the "W5W") straight in to the socket.

If you would like to have brighter map lights, choose a compatible replacement LED bulb.

Test the new light bulb by pressing the black plastic "On/Off" switch.

Re-Insert Tabs - Front Edge
Gently Pop In Rear Edge
Map Light Bulbs Replaced
Line up the lens cover with the light housing on the overhead console.

First, re-insert the two tabs on the rear edge of the lens cover (closest to the windshield).

Then gently snap in the other side of the lens cover.

Double check that both map lights work by pressing the "On/Off" switches.
