L.E.D. Dash Lights/194's

Does anyone know what type of bulbs (if any) the dash lights use. I found a cool web site and was wondering if we could use some of these LED in our dash lights. Are they still using the plug in lights from 19 forgotten. I have not gotten under my dash since been sick.

I did a thread search and did not see anything.

Far as I can tell is that everything is LED from the 4 pack gauges to the instrument panel, including the door lights, and sunroof button.

The only lights not LED are the daytime running lights, the headlights (halogen or HID), domelight, and the trunk light.

Of the LED's?

It would be possible if you are real good with a soldering iron.

If GM used the standard/194 bayonett bulb sockets then it would just be plug in the new colored LED bulbs. I will look under the dash today and see what I can see..

I think I have seen that the cluster uses board-mounted chip LED's.

Correct. I saw someone who took their gauge cluster apart on the other site.

I just pulled my dome light ans it a 12v w5 plug in type of bulb. I think I should be able to change it out with what ever color I want.
