Re: What cars have factory BLUE gauge/control lights?

In the "information control" buttons they have stock regular bulbs with a plastic blue coating on them. Mine were all working but I wanted to change them to blue leds so thats why i took everything apart. I did try scraping away the blue coating off the stock bulbs and the buttons glowed an amber color almost. For the heater control unit im not 100% sure if the blue coating was on the stock bulbs because those were already burnt out, one of the bulbs was actually cracked in half missing. BUT, with the information control bulbs after I scraped the blue coating off the stock bulbs two of them didnt work anymore, not sure if I wiggled the base loose or damaged the bulb while scraping. I think your asking if the blue coating can be scraped off to change the colors, if so then yes it can be but i would be super careful when doing it. i used a new razor blade and cut it right off no problem. Its a regular clear bulb under there.

Re: What cars have factory BLUE gauge/control lights?

From what I know, the heater control, esp button, and information control buttons are regular bulbs. The passenger air bag warning light in the information control, the door buttons, and the shifter lighting is small led lights. I am in the process of swapping these stock led's right now. The air bag light is orange leds and the door and shifter are green leds stock. I want all blue.
