Big Prob w/ Gauge LED Install
drive a 2001 GT auto. Had someone solder blue LED's on my cluster today. Problem is the LED's light up w/ lights off and don't light up w/ lights on. In other words its freakin REVERSED. We tried resetting the computer twice. No go.

But the led's work properly in his 2002 GTS 6 sp. He said he soldered according to RJautoworks.com schematics and said it works with all 7 gen celi's.

Please, if anyone has any ideas I'd really appreciate it.

LEDs are only installed in one way cause of the polarity..
I'm not sure why it's doing that..

LED normally lights up with ignition on... which headlight is off... and they do light up at full brightness..

When headlight turns on, LED gets little dimmer...

I'm not trying to make you stupid or anything... sometime people put dimmer on low.. that might turn off the LED...

One more thing what kind of LED or where did you get the LED from??

well, I'd say check out the dimmer as well, only thing that really makes sense, because you can't reverse the LED's and make it have that effect
