    can i use a G4 12v halogen bulb for interior footwell lighting? (replacing the original 5w 501 bulb?)

    REASON FOR THIS IS 5W 501 NOT VERY BRIGHT

    THE G4 IS 1O W AND THE 501 IS 5W.
    With the 501 you cant even tell there's footwell lighting fitted.

    You need to check the fuse rating on the circuit. If you put 10W in series with the interior light you are increasing the current draw on the circuit and if the fuse isn't rated for the load it will blow
