Front Console LED Lights

I took apart my front console on my D2 because some of the lights were not coming on. Like Traction Control and some other ones. So taking it more apart, I found out that the guys I bought it off ripped out the little LED lights on the console. Now how do i fix that? I would get a new console but then I have to go through the trouble of sending it off to Land Rover transfer my information onto it. I thought though, could I sauder a little LED light onto the board? And if I can do that, what does the voltage have to be on the LED?

Sorry to hear. Unfortunately, this world is full of un-ethically, conniving, A-Holes. The reason why those lights are missing is because the seller of your truck was trying to hide the fact that there was something wrong w/ the truck at the time of purchase.

Instead of taking the time and doing the right thing to correct the issues they pull the bulbs out of the cluster to hide the warning lights.

I'm not sure how to correct the missing bulb issue.

How long ago did you purchase the truck of off these A-holes? I'd go back to them and have them correct the problem (or better yet, reimburse you the amount to fix at the dealer) or you're going to inform the authorities of their unfair deceitful business practices.

Buy a used cluster install it and have a shop or dealer program it to your BCU which will then show on your new cluster.

Thats what the Land Rover mechanic shop around town said. But they said it would also be very expensive.

Scrubo, sorry to hear about your situation. I would take your disco back to where you got it. Unfortunately they can always say they were unaware of the vehicles missing lights.

I have an instrument cluster I will sell you if your interested. I can get it to you for $45 to your door. Let me know.

Thank you for the offer! Tight on money now so I gotta hold off. I can live without 3 lights on. See I bought the Land Rover from 3 "Amigos" in SC, and in return I get the 3 amigos problem. Lol, I get what I paid for.

When in doubt, hit the gas
