    Dash LEDs Wiring Expert Needed

    So my car is all buttoned back up and looks great. Driving for the first time and all new dash LEDs look and work great.

    Give car a wash, and then drive it again - top Speedo LED is then dark and top Oil Pressure LED is dark. WTF?

    Then I dry the car off, and this morning, all the LEDs work again...

    Question: how/why is it possible that water or something affected those LEDs? where should I look for leaks? other thoughts?

    Probably not a water issue but the LED’s themselves. I did this upgrade year before last over the winter and had everything put back together. Everything worked fine but over the course of the winter I had two of the bulbs go out on me. So I had to rip the dash apart and do it all over again. Sucks but it may just be the case. If you got them fron Superbright they seem to have a pretty good warranty. I had to warranty all the bulbs I had because they no longer carried the color I needed.

    Likely a loose connection in the LED itself...I've had one in my 4-gauge cluster on the side go out in the 3+ years I've had mine installed. Still haven't gotten around to replacing it, but thankfully those are fairly easy to remove/replace.

    I'm less impressed by the quality of the Superbright led's lately. Just had another led go bad - and had to go thru their bs replacement policy.
