|Co-Jones||I noticed that this post is old, but I was wondering if someone could help out with the LED specs used for the change, or a working link of where the LEDs were purchased. I am new and tried to PM some people but I haven't posted enough to PM people.|

This thread is extremely old I know, but I'm hoping for an answer.....
Probably a stupid question, but are the cluster and HVAC PCB's the same in the Evo's throughout this thread as an 09 GTS? Specifically are the LED's in the same position and the same type (0603 for HVAC dials and 0805 for defrost, etc)?
Hoping for an answer before I decide to just hope they're the same and order LED's.

First of all congratulations for the job you done on your evo.
Please i want an information.
How did you change the color on info display?
I suppose the same way is for radio display
What did you use?
Thank you for your help

I knew something would go wrong eventually. AWD, ASC, and headlight leveling switch are giving problems now. The AWD button works, but wont light up. The ASC button doesn't light up or work, ASC is automatically turned off when I start up. The headlight leveler doesn't light up, but i got the leveling working again. Doesnt surprise me at all that its having issues. I would think there would be a slightly more elegant solution than a cheap metallic claw stuck to a pcb with grease.
I tried searching for some troubleshooting, but the results are always for the function of the switch instead of the switch itself.
Any ideas what would cause a switch to not function when it seems it should be? It isnt dependent on the bulb completing a circuit is it?
Edit: I found it in the service manual. The bulbs complete the circuit between terminals 1 and 2, and they have to be in just right. Just out of curiousity, what size leds and which resistors should i use if i want to swap them out?

Also, it may go without saying, but disconnect the battery before removing the airbag. Better safe than boom.

So I finally got the hvac controls done. Had a little setback when I didn't check the cathode/anode markings were correct... They were backwards, so I had to do it twice. That's what I get for going cheap and ordering bulk from Amazon.
The only instructions I've found online for accessing the steering wheel controls requires taking the steering wheel off. Is this the only way, or did I miss another write-up somewhere? Also, is there a part number for the little bulbs inside the buttons? ASC, AWC, headlight leveler.... I had a tough time finding replacements, and am about to just take off the orange cover and color the bulbs blue.

I just used the diode setting of my multimeter to check for proper polarity and solder joints. When correct, it made the LEDs light up ever so slightly.
