A simple ABS fluid change might do the trick (that usually never gets...

I meant the climate control lights - the NEO3/4 should fit those. T6.5 is for the gauges. You need 10 of them, although you might want to order one or two extra just in case one doesn't work. I think...

I think the NEO3 and/or NEO4 bulbs on superbrightleds.com would fit. I haven't tried them so I don't know for sure, but they look like the right ones.

I'd start by checking to make sure the wires are connected to the bulb socket properly, in case they somehow got worn out or damaged.

Otherwise, maybe a grounding problem with the wires :dunno: ....

On that note, are there any good...
