Boxster led dials gauges problem help led
 
could you help -

Hi, I have taken my clocks out of my boxster,

I firstly changed the clock / mph / miliegae LCD screens to t10 twist lock red LED (worked FAB)

a week later..

I then changed to 2 main blulbs that light the instroments with Blue LED (worked fab)

a week after this i changed the other two for the anolog mph / fuel and temp gauge t10 twist lock Blue LED (worked fab)

everything lit up like the VW's luvly blue/red clusters

THEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE!! my anolog speedo just slowly went up to 150mph and my petrol gauge needles are not working and the temperature is not working

I put all back to standard bulbs and its still giving me the false needles.. please help?? all connections are brilliant and lit up fine but not working

Make sure all three plugs in the back of the cluster are fully seated and locked down. The LED bulbs should have zero effect on the gauges themselves.

+1 it is easy to not put one of the three plugs back on correctly, or at least have one come loose.
