Well tonight i managed to smash my head light switch on my AUII by being a bit to aggressive while trying to take it out (bloody cheap plastic piece of crap).
Anyway, the reason i was taking it out was because when i put blue leds in my dash yesterday the red lights in the arrow things which point to fuel speed tacho ect all stopped working.
Any Ideas what ive managed to f**k up this time?

Probably is not your head light switch dude. Sounds like your LED lights you put in was probably put in back the front and it blew one of your instrument fuses. LED lights are polarity sensitive. You can just shove them in anyway like you can with a normal globe.

I didn't change the lights in the red needle things. I just changed the bulbs in the dials, and they work and show up blue, its just the needles don't work anymore. Any ideas???

The needles are lit up by the same globes arent they? - so your new LED's arent providing any Red light to light up!
