should have resoldered all the connections on the back just to make sure before you installed it. Check all your connections.

might not have gotten all of the joints on the speedo? that's my only guess. you gotta melt them into a puddle though or it won't make the connection right.

Ya you gotta remelt them. Heating them doesn't do shit till they melt and turn color.

Ya but melt the original solder first, it should change color and you can add a little more. Don't add too much or it'll bridge and that's bad.

when i heated it the solder seamed to crack or split, what color would the shit change too

i also adjusted the mileage on the thing b/c i didnt have the right size torx head to switch em out. it got the job done

will i need rounded or inverted leds for the bulb switch?

I dunno, you watch it and it takes a few seconds and it changes color, you pull iron away and it changes back. Both colors are like a silverish I believe.

When I did one, it didn't actually change color, but it appeared to change color. Kinda hard to describe.
