Hi guys

Plenty of you will know that the inverted leds are OK for the dials but there not quite bright enough and there's dull patches to the top of the clocks, well i found leds that are 10 times better and give a whole even spread of nice blue light , see for yourselves.

There available in ether red, white or blue from ultraleds.co.uk , here's the link to the blue ones

no modding needed just swap these with the old bulbs :D , you need 3 bulbs

Cheers Kevstir - Good price as well! I should be able to get rid of the dull patch at the top left of mine now.

I'm guessing you are using them with standard dials?? I have got white dials with green numbers so I presume they will show green on the numbers and blue light will show in the middle - (I've just got standard blue bulbs in at the moment)

u just replace the standard bulbs with the leds m8 so no ugly green anywhere :D

when you install the leds make sure there on the right way before you put the clocks back in as they only work one way round , just rotate the bulb in its holder if it don't work :)

forgot to say you need 3 bulbs

SyCelicaGT you need 3 bulbs for the clocks, unsure about the heater controls , iv seen a guy mod the heater controls to take the same bulbs as the clocks , was a while now and back then you couldn't get led bulbs for the controls but I'm sure there available now just need to find out what type they are .

No probs Sean hope to see you there m8

i dont suppose someone with a uk celica gen 6 could look at what type plug goes on the end of the dimmer switch a picture would be nice, as i have a multi plug behind where the switch goes on my import - not sure if its for a dimmer switch , if it is the same plug i'd fit a dimmer switch and get those bulbs as they look class.

It's probably only a variable resistor, do you want me to test it with the multimeter and see if it is a variable resistor - If it is I can give you the resistances for min and max brightness then you can get some resitors from Maplin for about 20p and stick one across the pins??

ahh - nice and easy :D - shouldn't cost more than a few quid - might be easiest to get one from Mr T?

Just thinking about it though - is yours just on max brightness? I'll try unplugging mine and seeing what happens to the brightness - be back in 5 mins with the result..................................

............................ Right just unplugged mine - With it unplugged I get no dash lights what-so-ever so I'm guessing there must be more to it :(

I really want some of these but by the looks of the pics thay won't fit :( .

The bulbs in my car you have to twist them out, i don't wanna buy em and fond that they don't fit.

Ive got a 1994 gen 6 celica GT, not sure what model, as there is no sticker in the engine bay which states the model.
