I noticed a blown bulb in my gauge behind the temp gauge. I made the mistake of removing the bulb while the car was on and I shorted out the wiring. When I plugged the dimmer switch back in none of the gauge lights worked. I panicked and bought new LED strips to install. Before I installed the LEDs, I found the problem of the shorted gauge pod. The copper in the green overlay has separated on one of the connections. I tried a quick fix with wire and hot glue. It worked for a few minutes but the wire wasn't properly completing the connection. I don't have a solder tool, so I moved ahead with installing the LED's. Now I know what the problem is so I can have it fixed down the road, but for now, here is my custom LED install project from start to finish.
