    dash l.e.d.s

    hi i have bought a dash led conversion kit and done everything the instructions say however nothing lights up apart from the needles i tried them every way possible and nothing seems to make a difference.
    has this happened to any one else or does any one no what im doing wrong ?

    means you either fitted them wrong way round of one of them is not soldered correctly as they are all joined together if one is not soldered properly none of them will work usually u can test them by puttin say a pair of tweazer at one end of the led n just touchin the other side of the led with the soldering iron or a few leds further down the line they should light up slightly if they correctly soldered
    Go where the mind takes you, just take it in style

    what year is it mate? you might have the yellow filer behind your clocks which would block alot of the light out, remember leds only work one way round too so perhaps try turning them 180degrees?

    originals work cos they light up orange(like the diffuser makes them) blue will fade and go nearly green, as its paler light to go through the difuser, red normally works through the diffuser though!
