If you get the multiple LED instead of the single LED bulbs and put them into the two spots for the heater/ac panel they will instantly burn up.

The circuit boards run too far down and will touch the metal connectors inside the twist locks if that makes sense. The 5 twist in connectors will take the multiple LED bulbs just fine in the instrument cluster though.

If you went with the cheapest ones they had you will be fine but if went with the multi LED brightest ones they had then they wont work in the AC control panel.

I ended up using the brightest bulbs they carried in the dash and only the 1 LED in the AC panel. Theres not much difference in the brightness levels.

No problem. I couldnt tell you how pissed I was when they instantly started smoking. Superbright was awesome and replaced them for free just to figure out if that was the issue, heck they even gave me some free twist connectors to try as well, of course they didnt work either-lol

Popped in the single LEDs they sent and all has been good, well worth the money and way brighter than stock.
