Re:Speedometer/fuel guage illumination? 2 Years, 1 Month ago  
I may not have a problem after all. I went http://roadstarclinic.com/component/option,com_fireboard/Itemid,187/func,view/id,444725/catid,59/limit,10/limitstart,20/and saw a post by smokescreens with the pic of the led's he tried. If you notice the center of the speedo is dark (or shaded real bad). That is the part I was wondering if it lit up. I have lights all around the speedo numbers but not around the center where the needle originates.
Based upon his pic I might be OK.

there are only 4 lamps for the speedo, and they are around the MPH gauge, not at the bottom by the fuel gauge. These 4 lamps are incandescent and not LED.

LAMPS

Yep. Looks like only part of the odometer is supposed to be illuminated. Best to leave things be.
