Help! LED bulb change gone wrong......


Recommended Posts

Attempted to change out instrument cluster bulbs with blue LED bulbs, got the first set (3) of bulbs in, and could only get one to light. I understand that they are polarized, with a "right" way to be installed in order for them to work. To make a long story short, after many attempts, couldn't get anymore to come on and then, of course, the one bulb that did light stopped working. In utter frustration, I decided to put the old bulbs back in...and sure enough, they won't work now either. Checked the fuse for the lights, and it looks fine. Not sure what to do, any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I seem to have all lights except for the three which light up the digital read out on the lower part of the instrument cluster. (The digital gauges are still working, using a flashlight I could see the odometer reading, the temperature and the clock working) Looking for suggestions...
