not unless you can find someone to make that interior ring a different color. See picture in first post, 5th up from the bottom.

Yeah I figured that was the case. Wasn't sure if there was a scrape and paint method like for the gauge needles or if the rings were red plastic. I'll keep thinking about it! Thanks.

Exactly how many LEDs you need are going to depend on which LEDs you're wanting to change.

okay.. sorry, been a long last couple of days!

You'll need 16 PLCC-2s. These go on the screen part of the radio.

Also, 37 of the 1206s if you changed the same ones I did and adding the LED for the A/C cold dot & one for the Heater hot dot. (They're marked with a blue X and a red X in the picture.)

I don't know if you'd want to or not, but I also changed the LEDs for the seat heaters. I did mine to red, but if you changed to dark blue, that's another 4 LEDs.

So, that's a total of 41 of the 1206s.

Always get a couple of extra though. They are tiny and can be easily lost if you drop any.

Welcome

Be sure to post it up when you get it finished!

by the way, I think I'm done changing mine, lol

I had the issues with the blue a/c dot thing. I wanted that next hash mark green, but it changed the blue to a blue-ish green, so then I changed the led back to blue, then all the hash marks were green except the first one.. ugh..

so I finally just changed all the hash marks to white, all others to green.



Unfortunately, for some reason, I can't seem to get the green to show up very well in the photo, looks whiteish, but it's the same vivid green as it was back in the first posts.

How are the LEDs attached to the board? Do they snap on? How hard is it to remove the existing ones?

Thanks,
Rob

Oznium has the LEDs. That is where most of us have bought ours.

They are soldered. Just like everything else...not difficult if you know what you are doing.

Here is a link to Anglwngss dash LEDs. It has more information in there. (Anglwngss...might consider editing first post and add a link)

Guys im having a problem with my radio!!! So I changed out all the LEDs to blue and I plugged it in to see if all the lights lit up, they all did expect for the one that lights up the snow flake. I messed around with that one alittle more but couldn't get it to light up. So I just felt it, put the radio back together and installed in the car. Everything seemed fine but The next day as i was driving, the drivers side heated seat came on by itself and it kept doing that everytime i turned it off. Also the buttons for the air flow kept switching without my touching anybuttons. Then i noticed some of the LEDs were out so i thought maybe that was the problem. I took the radio apart again and changed the LEDs(including the snow flake one) so that they all lit up. they were all working and they all lit up fine. Everything work. So I put the radio back together and plugged it in and was just going through the buttons to see if they all worked. They did Untill about a min later and now none of the buttons work when I press them. All the LEDs work now just none of the buttons :( if anyone has any idea plz help! Thanks
