New to this forum; having the same problem with burned-out info center lights. Can anyone recommend a vendor who can replace these lights? Thanks much!

So is it possible to dim the lights with the leds? Or are they just permanently super bright?

Hi,

I'm trying to get these LEDs from outside the US but the seller blankly refuses to sell to non-US ebay/paypal accounts.
Is there another seller of these LEDs, or could I perhaps pre-pay someone via PayPal in this forum to get them for me?

Cheers,

-Morten

Just a quick question, how long does it take for a semi-experienced guy to solder in the LED's and resistors. Will make the difference if I try it out or just buy a new unit for $130.

Since LEDs are polarized, anyone know a way to safely tell which direction the HVAC light circuits are? The pdf that was posted only shows the upper bank circuit polarity and not the HVAC circuit. The pdf also makes no mention as to how they found that.

Plug the circuit board into the wiring harness and probe it with the lights on. Most fool proof way, just be sure to get the connector aligned properly since the plastic shrouding won't be there to do it.

Look carefully, I marked my board up. Should be the same for all of them...should.
