There are some LED'* in the instrument cluster. The shift indicator, for instance, is an LED. It still baffles me why they would mix LED'* and incandescents in the instrument cluster together instead of using all LED'*. The only thing i can think of is to get more money. My dealership said the instrument cluster either needed replaced, or they had to send it somewhere to replace the bulbs.
Who told you there would be more work required to replace the incandescents with LED'*? There are already LED'* and incandescent bulbs mixed in the instrument cluster, therefore there should not be any more work involved other than desoldering the incandescents and soldering in LED'* in their place which is what i intend to do when i get second instrument cluster to work on. There are plenty of places that sell LED'* for 12-volt systems.
