Can You Upgrade An Instrument Cluster?

Like any auto feature, an instrument cluster can certainly be made better. Customized instrument clusters give your vehicle's interior a unique appearance and upgrade the look of your instrument panel. Take a look at the images below to see the difference from stock lighting to red, blue or white LEDs.

We offer LED lighting in a variety of colors, including red, green, white, or blue. We also offer custom gauge faces in either white or carbon. Combining a custom gauge face with LED lighting is an easy way to change the appearance of your vehicle's interior and make it stand out.

Why Upgrade Your LEDs?

Upgrade LEDs

Upgrading the instrument cluster can provide a modern and sleek look. It will also make your gauges easier to read. ISS offers instrument clusters with upgraded LED lights that are:

  • Easy on the eyes
  • Brighter
  • Longer lasting
  • More energy efficient

High-quality instrument clusters from ISS also offer customizable features. Choose the gauges, needles, LED color, and configuration you like. An ungraded instrument cluster makes it easier to monitor your vehicle's performance. (Learn more about our LED instrument clusters here or in the table below).

High-Quality LEDs Are Easier On The Eyes

Driver fatigue is a real problem, especially when driving at night. It's not just about driving when you're tired but also when you have eye fatigue, which makes it harder to see and react to things. LED lighting helps reduce eye fatigue because it makes the gauges clearer. If you spend a lot of time driving, LED lights will help make driving more comfortable and less tiring.

Upgraded LEDs Provide Brighter Light

LED lights are brighter and more intense. With ISS, you can also choose between four different colors, including blue, red, white, or green, depending on which color looks the clearest to your eyes.

Quality LEDs Can Last Up To 10 Times Longer

LED lights last up to 10 times longer than traditional light bulbs. That means that you won’t have to worry about replacing your LED lights for a long time. Combine that long life with ISS Automotive's limited lifetime warranty, and you may never need to touch your instrument cluster again.

Good LEDs Are More Energy Efficient

LED lights use about 75% less energy than traditional light bulbs. That means less strain on your car's electrical system and more power for other accessories. It also means your instrument cluster lights are less likely to go dim if something else puts a big load on your battery.

Gauge Upgrade Options

Gauge needles

If you're ready for even more customization, ISS Automotive offers gauge options. You can choose some of the gauges you'd like to add or omit from your cluster. You can also choose your own needle and needle base color, backing color, and LED back light colors. Check out the list of custom instrument cluster parts below to explore your options:

Trust ISS For You Instrument Cluster Upgrade

LED cluster

While it's not hard to remove your instrument cluster from your vehicle's dashboard, it can be difficult to take apart your instrument cluster to access the lightbulbs. Even if you manage to replace the lightbulbs, it's easy to damage something inside the instrument cluster, causing a lightbulb or a gauge not to work.

That's why ISS Automotive offers instrument cluster repair in addition to instrument cluster replacements. Both options let you upgrade to LED lighting and/or gauges and include a limited lifetime warranty. We also provide a fast turnaround on the work and will also reprogram the instrument cluster with the correct VIN and mileage info from your vehicle.

ISS Automotive has over 70 years of experience distributing and remanufacturing automotive electronic and mechatronic components. We offer a limited lifetime warranty on all remanufactured and repaired electronic products and provide free shipping on orders over $99.
