So, my odometer back light isn't working. I took out the gauge cluster and since I already had it open, I went ahead and started replacing the ugly orange lights (indicated by the yellow x) with blue LED lights (BTW, I'm trying the #74 10 and 25 lumens lights, but they seem not to be enough light). After putting a multimeter to the connections for the backlight (red circle), I noticed that there was no power getting to the it. Does anyone know the proper fix/workaround for this? Can I piggy back off of one of the other yellow Xs connections? If anyone knows the best way to approach this, I'd appreciate it. If you need a better view of the board, I can use a better camera. Is anyone knows of a better place to get brighter LED lights, please let me know. BTW, the blue circle has never been used and holds no current.
Yup, blue. It's a metric ****-ton brighter than the old eBay LED I was using. I have a pic floating around somewhere, but it makes the odometer look very readable, which it wasn't at the time. Well, I had to strain to read it.
