the easiest way if youre not already tuned is to get a stock mtx computer and get it flashed for your PATS keys.

I do believe you have to swap the ECU's as well.

take the cluster out and then take the bulbs out

its harder on an 05+ but shouldnt take but an hour on 00-04


i just wish my ecu strategy didnt suck and i could just tune them out. But i got the unluck of the draw 1M19 strategy that doesnt like to have its atx functions turned off.

A) theyre bright yellow lights and i have blue everywhere, kind of ruins it.

B) when my passengers ask about it

C) if I have to loan my car or have people drive it on trips it would probly freak them out

I am about to do this swap as soon as I finish building my engine in a month!!! But something I read confused me....so I was wondering
Swaping the ecu with atx functions in it with a ecu with mtx functions in it will make the CELs go away??
