Hey all, I'm new to the forum and have just bought a 2007 ZX3 SE with the issue above. Only it's not only my instrument cluster's backlights that are out, it is also all my centre console lighting - i.e. car audio sys., A/C, fan,... etc that is without a backlight. Is this likely to be a related issue or just coincidence and I need to fix those backlights too?
Also, I found downloadable Owners manuals for my 07 here, useful if like me, the previous owner didnt include this in the sale :(
Thanks for any and all help,

Found this for getting at the instrument panel on an 07. Hope this helps. I have yet to try it on mine.

|OhWellAlright||i tried putting blue LEDs in my dashboard but it didnt turn out as i expected. the numbers light up a really dim greenish blue color and everything has a blue outline on it. it doesnt actually turn everything blue because of the green tint that was already in the dashboard. im gonna try green ones next and see how that goes.|

Sorry this is so old, but to replace my 2000's dash lights, just follow the instructions, pop out the old lights, put in new blue leds (74 and 198) and re install?
Will the blue leds shine blue then on my numbers? Thanks for the help guys. Any pics of this done by anyone?
