I can't say I would try to mess with my warning light, light bulbs.

They are all just LEDs. I, personally didn't want to change their colors or anything, but it could be done with a simple LED swap.

Aren't you a little worried that maybe your work might fail? I mean not saying this isn't a sweet thread and I want to try it. I just want to know if a warning light comes on. I know they are supposed to last 100k hours but I would rather not take the chances. As long as I can pull the one for my seatbelt I think I will be happy and thanks for this thread so now I can figure it out.

I can't worry about everything, plus, like I mentioned, I actually did NOT change any of the warning lights. I only changed the Ice blue LEDs; the halo ring that comes on when you turn your ignition switch on, and the ones that light up the numbers on the speed and tach gauges and the ones that light up the cold/hot and empty/full gauges. That's all.

Is it possible to change the color of the blinker indicators?? Or do they have a green tint in the arrow?

They are green leds...all of the indicator lights are just leds of that color, no tinting...

Tried to do it today but I goofed and burned two of the LEDs. Should've ordered extras, but didn't tihnk about it. Gotta wait for the extras to show up before I can finish the job. I'm waiting until the extras come in to do the white letters, so all I accomplished was 6 of the 8 ring/halo LEDs. While it's a relatively easy job to do, I'd definitely recommend having a good soldering iron. Mine is old and has a crappy tip on it - a new tip would make the job a LOT easier.

Here's a pic of what mine looks like right now.

That's actually kind of intersting! I know you're not done and all, but it looks kind of neat having the two colors, though red & white would've been more ideal! lol

Really, though, it'll look great once you've gotten it finished!

Thanks! You've definitely inspired me to dive in and give it a try. When I realized how easy it was to get the cluster out, I had to try it. And when I goofed up, I told myself it was too easy to stop, put it back together, and wait until the extra LEDs come in so I'm not doing it while I'm frustrated. With only 4 real bolts, I haven't owned any cars that were easier to remove the cluster.

Aw. Thanks. I'm glad I was the inspiration for something, lol.. Now, I do cheat, though and someone else changes the actual LEDs for me, but I did the rest. Really, though, I have no talent for this kind of stuff, so I figure if I can do it.. anyone else can too!
