Ride: AU III XR8 Pursuit 250 ute

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

When I was bored at work the other day I was flicking through the Narva products catalogue, anyways, in it I saw that they are selling LEDs. The LEDs come in little holder things that look to be identical to the ones that hold the globes for the dash.
So if anyone is considering doing the LED dash lighting conversion, go to some auto store and check these out first as it may save you having to do all the soldering and that, as you could just unscrew the old globe holders and globes, and screw in these led holders...

For the AU anyway, the NARVA bulb holders aren't the same as the stock ford ones. They don't have the thread/pattern to screw it into the hole. If you get what i mean. You could get them to fit with a bit of modifying, I spose.

U can pick these up from most auto electrical stores that deal narva products such as autopro, repco and ingrams

Ok this is for an EF (my car as I have done this mod 3 times in 3 different cars now)

Ok firstly I believe the globes are polar ie they will work only if they are inserted correclty, much like a battery. This is a cause of many people saying they dont work. The solution is to turn the individual glboe 180 degrees and see what happens.

Secondly the globes will work only in the cluster (maybe CC/Air Con unit didnt try it but I dont beleive so). This is a feature of the cluster and these LED globes are designed for this purpose.

Thirdly they will not work in a clock or trip computer. To change the colour of the trip ocmputer/clock, see Laximah's doco (trying to convince him to gget it on FordMods.com), he has great, clear onstructions with photos. (LINK TO THREAD OF INSTRUCTIONS: http://www.fordmods.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4359)

The reason they dont work in a clock or trip computer is of a filter paper that filters the light through it, obviously.

I've seen a clock that was blue before but they used a home-made LED to do it and it looks way better than changing the filter colour!

Yes LEDs look better then wannabe changes like filter paper.

But I choose filter paper because

a) Its eaiser, as I dont feel confident soldering
b) I can change colours to see what looks good and what gives off a good light.

If you want to, get the push-in wedge type LEDS, as described before, and then get the globes and holders, (part # EF-10B765-D) and replace the globes with your LEDS.

the holder should be Black or White. The Blue holders do NOT have removeable globes!!

I changed the filter papaer AND put in blue LEDs, that gets the best result. As seen here:

Correct. The term is polarity sensitive. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. A diode is basically a one way valve (or check valve) for electricity and as such will only allow current to flow in one direction. Most LED's Ive seen have a + and - symbols indicating which terminal is which. But if they dont just turn them 180 degrees like twirqurky said.
