i just got my touch screen installed and really need to fix these lights. in the process i took a look and figured it was really easy to get to the burned lights.
i dont plan on doing any other ones as they work fine for now
just need to know what size those specific lights are for the ac console part, and what size led's will work?? and should i order more then just the 3 that are burned?
I believe they would work, any led would work with the proper resistor and given the light output of the led is strong enough.
Someone just emailed me saying he installed 3mm leds and it doesn't appear as bright as the ones in my photos. Come to find out the leds he bought put out 2000-5000mcds, so I sent him a few of the ones I have rated at 10,000mcds to try. I should be getting an update how they turn out.
Believe me, I know very little when it comes to leds and circut boards, and I just experiment and learn along the way.
