    Now im pissed

    been reading all the topics on changing the interior lights (in the dash and window buttons) to blue LED's. thort this would look good.

    neway just took out the electric window buttons and took off the orange LED's and fitted the 3mm blue LEDs instead.
    they worked and it looked sweet (for about an hour)

    they have gon out now so i thort id fit the resistor as there was obviously too much voltage going to the LEDs.

    fitted resistor and they still dont work. took the LEDs off and connected up the circuit and now the windows arnt workin.

    i think its just the circuit board dead and (hopefully) they dont cost much to replace.

    ne1 have any ideas?

    just been thinkin bout that, rememberd that the single button still worked regardless of led or not. so its not the circuit boards.
    i'l have a look 4 the fuse now (better get out the haynes manual!)

    cheers mate

    Leo, how did you get your passenger window switch apart?

    Can't find out how to do it!

    Cheers!

    If you've fitted the resistor after the led went out and use the same led then the led is ****ed.

    You will need new leds and fit resistors in at the same time
    Cant Think of Anything Funny To Say
