In your schematic like thing for the MFA light you used a 2000 ohm resistor in parllel with the LED. What was that for? Did you use it instead of a smaller resistor in sieries?
Good mod, I'm in the middle of doing it now. Gotta give you mad credit! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

OK, I used a 680 ohm resistor on the string w/3 5v 30mA LED's. The LED's I got for the MFA are 3.7v 20mA, so I'll just use one of the 680 ohm resistors on them. I'll let you know how it works. I got different LED's for the MFA and the odometer, they are more intense of a blue than the others.
Oh, I have MFA and odometer in LCD, its a '91 and up thing, sorry. The more intense blue are like a deeper darker blue, I think they are the same ones you used in your string. The ones I used in my string are a lighter shade of blue, and a 36 degree field of light as opposed to a 30 degree. Only reason I took this route is cause its all Radioshack had in stock
