Re: [DML] Re: Bright Lights behind AC Control

Around two years ago I replaced the lights inside my car (doors, overhead,  
and console) with led's. I did this to help with battery draw down and I am 
 pleased. I would just replace the console lights with Leds this takes 
about 10  minutes and besides you get a different look to the console, easy fast 
and cheap  fix.

Go to radio shack and get this relay

headlights and,  when on, they will be burning on the resistor at lower intensity 
and much  cooler.

The replacement relay should be a SPST rather than the OEM SPDT  which is 
what does the trick.

Or, you can just clip the center wire (it  s/b the LGW wire) to the OEM 
relay plug-in.

Warning!!!!!Warning!!!!!<WBR>!!!!!  Don't attempt this if you are not auto 
electric savvy and sure of what you're  doing. Messing around with relays 
can be dangerous and can cause fires and  possibly serious damage to
