How do you install LED lights in the gauge cluster?
The way you install an instrument cluster bulb is by opening up the cluster. You will need to remove the needles, and then remove the faceplate. Once you have access to the back of the cluster, you will need to twist out the old bulb, and insert the new LED bulb. Be careful not to touch the glass on the new bulbs. The oil from your fingers can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.
What is the best color for LED lights?
The best color for LED lights depends on what you are using them for. We find that blue is by far the most popular cluster color. It is also popular to use a white LED for the daytime running lights, and then switch to a different color (such as blue or green) for the headlights.
You can also get creative and use different colors for different parts of the cluster. For example, you could use blue for the needles, white for the background, and green for the indicator lights.
The sky is the limit when it comes to LED colors, so have fun and be creative!
Frequently Asked Questions About LED Dash Lights SIlverado
What is a cluster light?
A cluster light is a light bulb found in your vehicle's cluster. It can be for any of the instruments or warning lights such as check engine, brake and ABS, headlights, odometer display and fuel gauge. Light bulbs can be found in your speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and other areas of the cluster.
Are LED instrument lights dimmable?
Yes, LED lights are dimmable. Some people who have a dimmer switch in their vehicle will notice that the light from an LED bulb is not as bright as it should be or dims at a weird rate compared to a standard incandescent bulb. The reason for this is because LEDs can flicker and create a headache-inducing strobe effect. You can fix this problem by adding a resistor or putting the LED through an electronic circuit that will slow down the flicker rate.

Can you use LED instrument cluster lights in a speedometer?
Yes, it is possible to use LED bulbs in your speedometer. There are no particular precautions that need to be taken when doing this and the color of the light will not change. If you are worried that the color will not match, then it is best if you purchase an LED or LED-style cluster instead of just replacing the bulbs. These are used in most newer cars and they act as a USB drive to store all of your car's information including current speed, RPMs, mileage and even maps.

How do I change the instrument panel led lights?
In order to change your instrument panel LED lights, you must first remove your entire assembly from the car. This is not necessary in most cases but if you are replacing multiple bulbs, then it will save time to just remove the whole assembly.
After this, disconnect the wiring harness from the back of it. You can now remove all of your old bulbs and replace them with LED lights just like in step 6.

What is a Cluster Light?
The cluster light is a bulb in your car's cluster gauge. This is the part of your vehicle that tells you how fast you are going, fuel level and other information. The distance from one side of the gauge to the next is usually around 100 millimeters or just under 4 inches. When deciding what kind of replacement bulb you need, consider the size of the original light. You want to pick a replacement that will fit into your existing space. New bulbs are usually brighter, smaller and draw less power than old, dimmer ones. This will give you better performance for your vehicle.
Some of the most common cluster bulb sizes are 194, 29 millimeter miniature wedge base bulbs and 28 millimeters in size. These numbers indicate the measurement of the actual light itself rather than the base or socket size.
