    Default Dash illumination? Volts & fuses?

    Do all the dash LEDs run from the same fuse, if so what size and number in the box?

    Also as the SMD's are low power is it a 12v feed, don't have a voltmeter

    Thanks

    Most leds are low voltage, Red + Green+ Orange 2-3V and blue + white 3-4V, I was looking for a similar circuit and was thinking that the dash dimmer must be part of the voltage control for the leds, If you find anything out please let me know.

    Normally the illumination circuit is 12v and there will be a resistor in the circuit to bring the led voltage down to what it needs to be.

    What is it your trying to do?

    Was to wire something that needs 5v but fancied it coming on with key fob etc... Might still do it but do what I was going to do from the switched 12v, just butcher an old charger.
