Default Looking to change the interior light color

How do i do this? I have my gauges changed and my climate control changed. How do i do the four wheel drive switch? Also the cruise control lights and where the headlight switch is, is that supposed to light up?

The headlight switch is suppose to light up but sense it is always on the bulb burns out quick. Here is a link on how to change the fog light switch to a LED. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/296394/6

Follow that same link above for cruise switches too. Youll have to flip page to page to page to find em...the links at the top of each page dont work too well. Oh...and if you get creative with it, you can fit 2 5mm LEDs in each like what I have.

Yep. I did it on...well...just about everything on that dash is soldered. lol. Cruise, headlight switch, 4x4 switch, fog, cluster has 36 LED's in it, HVAC has 9 LED's in it.

Take time an practice. Even grab another set of cruise pods off ebay for like $10 to play with.

I want to do this. But i am just wondering where does the led get the power from.. Witch wire is the power wire on the climate control.. Because I can figure how to wire it up, just dont understand witch wire is the power for it..

I also dont understand how they remove the speedo thing..

Fx4wannabe01:

I'm wanting mine to be that same blue also. Mine's the stock green at the moment, and it's so ugly. Especially since I just bought a radio that's blue. I've got no mechanic skills, so I was wondering if you can take it to a shop and have this done. I'm sure you can. Any idea on about how much it would cost to have done?

Default Re: Looking to change the interior light color

I know it's been awhile since y'all talked about this... But why can't u jus replace the lights with a blue led rather than having to mess with any wires. I'm in the process of doing this and just trying to go the easiest route.
