i feel like a worse idiot this morning :x
one of the little metal tabs from the cheap assed ebay led fuk n came of and shorted out the cluster.
for any body who want to know fairmont and falcon cluster circuit boards arent the same even though everything swaps over :cry:
also found out that the some a ss hole pulled the oil light and abs light out .
and the oil light is on c un t you know who you are if you done it while you ownd it.

Hey Mystro,

I got the blues ones for my dash......pain in the butt to install......
Did you have trouble with your 2 x right and left outer leds....when i installed mine they sat too high and push on the plastic plating and the gauges wouldnt work properly.

Had to do some hacking etc etc but all in all it worked ok

and im pretty sure there T10`s

Funniest thing happenend when i tried to update this post to the forums from work....its attached

I said Pain the A**

thought it was hilarious as im the webmarshal administrator for the institute i work for
