Wow.. What have you done Jooke??

The only thing that comes to mind is maybe some when the radio was put back together, it wasn't seated or maybe .. eh.. idk.. somehow the contacts on the buttons aren't being made properly.. Maybe something is under some of the buttons or on the circuit board itself? some kind of trash or something??

other than that.. i don't have a clue..

its really weird because sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt! ive noticed that the one LED that lights up the snow flake next to the blue dot has been acting weird, flickering and stuff. do u think it has something to do with that? i think that the power going to that spot doesnt have a good flow. but idk much about circuit boards. do u think there is some kind of place i can bring it to that can figure out whats wrong with it?

Angl.. Or 572hp I love the how your radios came out!!! Just wondering about the a/c controls, the buttons like which vents the air is coming out of and the heated seat buttons, will I be able to make the symbol one color and the hash below showing they are on a different color?

The LEDs towards the outside of the circle are the indicators and the ones towards the middle are the symbols. You can change them however you like. The worst part of the radio (assuming that you don't take the LCD apart like Angl and I did by mistake!!!) is the rotary knobs for volume and tuning. It took me a long time to desolder the ring, but I took my time. Maybe if you had a pair of hot-tweezers you could get inside the ring.

Thanks man I don't know how I'm gunna do those rings just yet, but with the outside LEDs in the a/c controls lets use the defogger for example the top led will be the indicator and the bottom will light up the symbol?

On the heated seats, the first time you press it, both LEDs turn in for (high heat), then press again, one goes off on remains lit for (low heat). So, even though there are 2 LEDs, they both light up the indicator and symbol.

Does that make sense?

I think so, we'll what my plan is that I want the symbols red and indicators white and If I understand what you said correctly, one indicator would be red and the other white with the symbol one of those colors

Did I get that right?

not quite. Lol.

Both of the LEDs are the indicators.

I do see on all the other knob buttons, there are 2 LEDs; one for the picture and one for the light, but this is NOT the case with the heaters. I'm not honestly sure where the picture gets it's light from, though I'm guessing it's from the other surrounding LEDs.

Pictures below just show both of the LEDs working when buttons are reinstalled.

Ok so your heated seat symbol is green and the indicators are red correct?

And what you did is change both the LEDs under the button red and the surrounding symbols are green so in turn that makes your heated seat symbol green

I think I got it right this time

correct or at least I believe that's how it works.. lol.

but yes, I changed both of those LEDs red, but the surrounding LEDs (face, feet, defrost, etc) are green.

Those other ones.. the feet, face etc... DO have two LEDs where one lights up the symbol and the other lights up the indicator. weird, eh?

I'm starting to see this is gonna be interesting

Yea like 572hp said on the feet face defogger etc. the LED on the outside is the indicator and the one on the inside is the picture/symbol so I guess this kinda makes sense
