2003 Instrument panel to LEDs!?!?!
Need some advice from you guys , I just changed my instrument panel lights over to the Blue LED's like in reggiecab2000's thread , but my truck is a 2003 , so I had to de-solder 8 small lights and solder in my LED's. Everything went fine , looks great ,BUT....I have 2 out of 8 LED's that started blinking on and off! Connection is fine , and its not just blinking like a loose connection , its like Christmas lights! 3-4 seconds on then 2-3 seconds off! Anyone know what causes this? My new Stepper Motors will be arriving today , so I'm replacing them tomorrow ,just got to get these 2 lights to stop blinking!?!?! (It's the temp LED and the passenger side speedometer LED thats blinking)2003 Silverado Z71 Extended Cab 5.3L, K&N air filter , Flowmaster exhaust , Blacked -out Bowtie , leather interior , up-graded to 17's

Where did you get the LEDs? They make LEDs with blinkers inside them. Did you get the polarity correct? Maybe it flashes one direction and is steady the other?

I got the 194's from DTM motors in California , off of Ebay. They come in sets of 2 , all of the packs are the same , steady burning , but the 2 are flashing . When I turn them around they won't burn ,so I know their hooked in right.

Forget this MESS!!!!......went to the salvage yard and got another cluster.....the new stepper motors were a PAIN! After replacing them , every gauge shot to the right -wide open and the speedometer quit........so I get to use my GLOCK on the old Cluster thie weekend.
