    So here we go. Got bored tonight and tossed this in. Did not have the proper tools so it took me a little longer than should have since I was worried about burning the board cause my soldering iron was way to hot. Either way it worked!! Only other issue,,,, shouldn't the lights on the ac/heat be on? What about gear shift?? Anyone know where they get their power or ground out at? I don't remember loosing the lights so,,,, any schematics out there?


    BTW: Sorry for the bad photos. The iphone does not take the best pictures without white light.

    There is soldering involved? I was under the impression that you just bought new lights and plugged them in. Props to you for undertaking that task. I would have gotten cold feet when I took it apart to find a soldering job

    yeah and I had to use a fine tip for my iron. That way I was able to get under the diode and unsecure it. also you need some tweezers or something. Hopefully wife does not find out I used hers.
