So, without reading all of Haro'* post, or looking closely at the links in his post, I cruised up to Radio Shack and bought an LED replacement.
Now I find out that they are not LEDs but regular bulbs. Needless to say, the lights behind the LCD don't work at all now. All of the other lights work, and if I shine a flashlight on the display, I can read the information, the time and everything,
So, I'll be heading back to the Shack tomorrow to see if they have the correct bulbs, or I'll be going to corvetteradios.com to order a set.
Not really a point to this post, other than to admit my stupidity to someone other than my wife, she already has opinions about me, no sense in confirming them
