ok so i did the led write up with the 1/2 watt 33 ohm resitors and 360 5mm red leds and i pluged them in and did everything its worked for about 5 mins then i seen a puff of smoke some from behind the dash i pulled the cluster and seen that all the lights resistors had eather burned or the soder connections came apart. so what the hell did i do wrong? i followed the write up to the tee and made sure all my soders were good were the resistors wrong?

Were they 33 ohm or 330 ohm?
You may have hooked them up backwards.
they were 33 not 330 i made a mistake when getting them and i didnt hook them up backward cause if i did the led would not work and i hooked them up like in the pic in this thread i figured out my prob and went out and got the 330 ohm resistors im fixing it now

the hvac control might be possible but i broke the temp switch while pulling the tabs off so its depends if you wanna risk breaking it or not and 130 for a new control unit .... its all up to you if you wanna risk it, as far as the other switchs i tried but sorry i dont wanna risk breaking them. whats the point of new lights when the switchs look like crap cause there broken, will post pics soon

how hard was it to pull apart the 4x4 and light switch? i tried to do my climate control and broke the knob for the temp. i had to get a new one and i said screw it. but i wanna try to do all of them even the ones in my steering wheel controls. has anyone done all of them?
