Hey guys!

So my friend helped me out with converting my blue/red cluster to white/red, but we messed up somehow the tank gauge backlight, and now even if my lights are off the backlight always on (even when locked).
We couldn't figure out what's wrong with it, and since i don't want to do the hassle to replace my cluster i would like to fix this...:confused:

Any additional info on supplies and process?
There are loads of threads with converting your gauge cluster to led. But use only 3528 SMD (3.2mm x 2.8mm) And around 200-300mcd.

You need to verify that you did this and nothing extra in between.
We’ve made sure the polaritys are right since we tested it with multimeter before and after to make sure. You mean we should desolder smds one-by-one?
