Switches on a '90 CQ are clear, small bulbs.  The whole assembly is incased
in a clear red plastic holder thingy (a technical term...) which holds the
wheel and the spring ball-bearing thing, with the circuit board on one
side.  That assembly then slides into the square switch case, which in turn
clips into the center console.

The red, therefore, comes from the red plastic holder thingy, not the bulb,
at least on the CQ.  If you do have to have a colored bulb, the easiest
route to go is to find some bulb condoms.  They exist in red, amber & green.
