Okay awesome.. I need you to find out for me what kind of bulbs are in there now. I know there surface mount LEDs I just need to know if there PLCC-2 (one positive one negative connection) or (PLCC-4 two positive and two negative) you will both need a low wattage soldering iron, solder, flux and copper wire desoldering.. All together will run you maybe 50 including all the bulbs and tools.. Maybe even less.. It's very easy especially once you get the hang of it.

Gunna be a pain easiest way is try and find somewhere online last resort take apart the location you wanna start and desolder one and look at it take a picture and show me.. Or look for two metal spots on the underside of the bulb or four.. I'm almost certain all yours will be PLCC-2 (which is a lot easier anyways) my car all where 2 except for the cluster gauge.

James these bulbs are what your most likely what you'll need only place you might need others is the cluster gauge..but I still think these will work in yours I'd start with 50 bulbs. http://www.oznium.com/plcc-2

Another tip I did my practice soldering on my door lock switches and window control switches somewhere that it wouldn't matter if I screwed up I didn't that's how easy it is. Just time consuming

I want to have my dash lights stay white when I turn on the head lights and fog lights. I don't have the "my color" option on mine and they turn green when I switch the lights on. Or I would like blue. Either one would work. I don't want to spend a lot of money either and I'm not sure how to take the dash apart.

Okay well your talking about the cluster gauge.. First of all you need to look online for "surface mount PLCC-4 LEDs" color of your choice. Let me know when you find some. I'd check eBay first off. There going to cost you almost nothing..

Oh snap. They have pink. I think I'm going to make this a weekend project. How long did it take you to do it?

Took me like a day to do the door lock switches and all my other control switches like the airvent, cruise control and windows. What year is your car?

Okay so Like i said up there the cluster guage needs a different type of bulb then all of the rest. there is a link posted up above..that will take you to the bulbs you will need for everything but the cluster gauge. the cluster guage bulbs are slightly hard to find i unfortunatly dont have a link to them i ordered mine off ebay. just remeber your looking for surface mount PLCC-4 Bulbs for the cluster Gauge. Also note that i would start with anything but the cluster gauge as they are the harder ones to do.. so its better to get used to it on something alittle easier. let me know if you have any other questions.
