    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that link says they fit type 74 bulbs, which are considerably smaller than the bulbs in your cluster (although I think there might be a couple of 74's for warning lights and such). You would need lights that work to replace type 194 bulbs.

    You need 194 bulbs for the gauges - that I can guarantee since I have did them myself when I had the '01 Silverado. Check out my write-up on swapping them for pretty much all the information you will need.

    pmy608 has got it right. You ordered the wrong bulbs my friend. I did this swap on my 92 Sonoma back a couple years ago, even it used the 194's I was able to find a semi local guy and got them for a decent price. but super brightleds.com or whatever it is is also a good site which I may be ordering some MAP LED lights off of. Which by the way you might want to do at the same time you order your new 194's to complete your look.

    Lancer, If you read through the thread I linked to earlier about my LED swap, you will find all the information you need for the climate controls and a lot of info on the headlight switch. Everything else will be similar to the climate controls in that they are soldered onto circuit boards and to replace them you need to remove the existing lights and solder on new LEDs with the correct resistors.

    In my thread, the info on the climate controls is in post #28 and the info on the headlight switch is distributed throughout a few posts somewhere between roughly post #30 and post #60.
