You have a good idea but with the transformer you may not have enough amps to get full power out of your bulbs. Be sure you have a good ground at the trans, These bulbs are not as bright as you might be thinking with out the proper reflectors. You might try a sealed boat trailer type of light w/ a clear cover. Check out wally world, boat supplies, or a simi trailer parts supply for a good tag light.

My thermostat says the heat is on and its set to auto but the furnace wont turn on we've reset circuit breakers turned the unit off and on checked the filter but it wont turn heat on.

Look for this. 24 volt transformer. Thermostat sends 24v to the unit in order to tell the unit to turn on. The transformer is probably bad or isnt getting power and the unit isn't getting the "turn on signal"
Get a test meter and touch the two screws. If it's not getting voltage, check the 120v wiring to it and make sure it's getting 120v. If it's getting 120v at the wiring but not 24v at the screws then the transformer is bad. Easy to change and common part. Home depot or Lowes for about $35

Need a power transformer from 220v input to 120v output

Yes, you need a step down transformer. These are often rated in watts (the power rating is the same on both sides of a transformer) so it is easy enough to match this with the power consumption of the stereo. Apparently you will need about a 4kW transformer eg

Dometic RM2652 RV Refrigerator trips GFCI


Right beside the circuit panel, there is a grill, remove the 4 screws to gain access to the transformer/battery charger. You'll see a double power outlet, one cord is from fridge, the other is from the transformer. UNPLUG Transformer cord and reset breaker.

It will take a couple of minutes for the fridge to change to AC if you have it in AUTO. If everything works fine, REPAIR OR REPLACE TRANSFORMER/BATTERY CHARGER.

Don't forget to rate this answer, Good Luck!!!

1156 and 7506 are not the same. the euro cars when you replace the bulb, need to be the right number or it causes this issue. the different casings causes resistance. 1156 s are common bulbs they shouldnt have done told you that but thats why they are parts guys and im not.
