I changed out my led bulbs in my stock switches. Now my 4x4 indicator does not come on when I switch to 4x4 on the dash. You can here it activate. Any help...

I'd love to change the guage backlight. That looks bad ass and matches my Silver/Octane perfectly. Anyone have part numbers for the LEDs & pics of the process for changing the guage LEDs?
I just ordered blue LEDs to color change the ones in my swithces from SuperBrightLEDS.com, they should be in anytime.

I am in the process of doing the color change right now. I started with the DPS switch since its the simplest. you just need to pay attention to the polarity as some of the switches have the anode on one side and others it contacts on the other. I used a 2032 coin battery to test polarity before removing the led from the switch. also watch out for the small resistor or diode that is under some of the contact springs. they are tiny and would be very easy to lose. the DPS switch does not have any of the resistors, but the 4wd and headlight switches do. I'm dreading the eco/sport switch. i'm not great with fine soldering.

update: I finished all the switches. After the first one I can now do a switch in 5 minutes.
The sport/Eco switch was a bitch though. Took me 2 hours but it worked perfectly first time.

Just hide that sport low switch behind the dash like me :)
