Wink Blue LED convert - tech guide yes or no

Hi people,

I have had a number of PM's in regards to my Blue LED dash conversion asking about further details on the conversion to get it bright enough.

Purpose of this thread is to see if I should pull my dash apart (again) and take some pics of the work done so that any one wanting to attempt the conversion can, or should I continue to just answer the PM's, I am happy to do the tech guide if there is enough genuine interest.

Jason

Re: Blue LED convert - tech guide yes or no

Yeah doco!

BTW, did you have any problems putting your climate control back together? I pulled it totally apart (the white bit the glode plugs into away from the circut board) and now the display is fudged :S At first it didn't show anything, then I tightened the screws a bit, about half was showing up, tighten them some more and it's back to nothing.

It ain't a fuse for sure, the air con still works and all the lights show up.

oooopsie, off the the garage for Rob!

All the gauges have worked 100% first time put back together (and I have pulled them as apart as is possible without a soldering iron), the climate, the trip, and the cluster, so cant offer anything there :0)

Re: Blue LED convert - tech guide yes or no

The LCD has a strip with wire in it, to conduct voltage to the LCD to light the certain segments to give the display as required, check that is connecting cleanly, maybe you bumped that when pulling it apart (99% of LCD's work that way so I should be right)

Re: Blue LED convert - tech guide yes or no

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's not connecting properly.

When I tightened the screws for the first time and half of it decided to work I figured they just needed a bit more torque on them to get it done properly. Tighten them up and nothing.

I'll go rip it apart again and try again. That's if I don't round the screw heads first :S


BTW; reguarding the cluster mod, I picked up a digi dash facia the other day and I'm working on it. If all goes to plan, end of march :)

Re: Blue LED convert - tech guide yes or no

Cool - we are talking the white numbers instead of horrible yellow mod right ??

Hope you get the climate control back to normal.

Re: Blue LED convert - tech guide yes or no

If I had one then I am sure it MAY be possible, but from memory they have an orange filter in front not behind the LCD so would make it hard, but nothing is impossible :0)

Anyone got one I can expirement with :0)
