If you have heated seats you need to wire in a resistor for the LED's in those switches as well as the traction control button if you have that as well. I used a 1k ohm resistor inline with a 2 volt Ultrabright 5mm LED that puts out 3000 mcd luminosity. LED's have two leads coming from the botton of a plastic enclosure. Bulbs look like regular light bulbs from a lamp in your house but smaller.
i've worked with LEDs before adn soldering, its just i dont want to tear apart my interioir to see what i need then reassemble it, buy the LEDs and everything, then tear it apart again then reassemble one more time...tedious work that could be avoided with some much appreciated help :)
