Hey whats up...if your interested...I can do it all for you pretty cheap. any color and if you want the clock white rather than blue, I can do that too. I did a write up on it in the past, check here: LED conversion
I do things alittle different now. LEDs may not last forever, so I set it up to where they can be swaped like a bulb. I also do turn signals, side markers...and all the LEDS are replacable. EMAIL me if interested. :bigthumb:
4.) Ignition Switch - In 5th gen cars we also have a light where you put the key in the ignition; I have not seen a write-up on this, but, I imagine it is another LED process, and requires some fiddling - I would imagine after 1,2, and 3 it would feel like a piece of cake!
I hope this helps - and remember, Search Search Search!
the ignition switch is just a surface mount led .. the lil ones u use in the cell fones.. its just a simple direct replacement, resistor is built into the board.. the size of hte led doesn't have to be exact.. it can be smaller..
and the 4g climate/cruise/moonroof/dimmer are pretty much the same as the 5g.. infact the cruise/moonroof/dimmer are interchangable.. the climate is slightly different in dimensions.. very slightly.. and the harness is different.. 2 less prongs on th 4g i believe
and here was my most recent thread about modding the stock gauges
first off before attempting this u'll wanna disconnect the battery.
take the upper and lower covers off of the steering column.. i don't remember off the top of my head how many screws there were, but i basically just looked around until i saw all the holes and unscrewed what i could, and it should just come apart pretty easily.
then youll see the ignition switch.. there are 2 screws holding in the front plate of it.. it's just one piece.. the whole cylinder does not have to be removed.. its just 2 small screws on the edges of it... one of em is hard to remove because a screwdriver wont fit.. u need like a socket-wrench type screwdriver thing so u can get it at a 90-degree angle.. i ended up breaking mine off because i didn't have a screwdriver that fit.. but whatever.. the other screw holds it in place.. oh and remember to remove the harness that plugs into that piece.. but yea after u get it out just start lookin around for the led..
u'll wanna test for polarity somehow.. i had a power supply so i didn't need to test it in the car.. i wish i wrote all this down
sorry for the vague description, but i didn't have ANY description to work with either :laugh:
