dash lights
#1
I am windeirng if there are lights above the switchs for the headlights, top motor, windsheild wipers and the plug for the cell phone charger? None of these have illumination on my car and never has had but was looking under the dash and notcied what looked like wires going to these places. Was unable to determine if they go to lite bulbs or someplace else and if they go to lite bulbs what kind they take and how does one get them out to replace them?

Yeah, the bezel lettering lights up.

Dam that looks sharp, my blue mach would look good with Blue LED's. How many LED's are needed to convert over from normal globes?

Super bright LEDs.

This is what I got to do everything including the dome and map light:

So how does one get to the sockets I could not see them and thus was unable to figure out how to remove them. I replaced all the other lights in the car with green LEDs. Although they look nowhere near as bright as yours and one seems to make intermittent contact.

They are a pain really, I had to lay on my back in the floorboard to access them, or you can take out each component and replace it that way.


Totalled, I think that is my next lighting upgrade.... looks sick!

I pulled the instrument cluster and bezel to get to them.
