So I got LED bulbs for my gauges and ac vent. They all worked fine all my lights worked.. Now my ac lights flicker on and off and sometimes stay on, or stay off... I have 3 bulbs still working in my gauge cluster, 1 never came on when i bought it, and the one where the gas gauge is sometimes is off or is sometimes on. And now my shifter lights dont even work anymore.. So now i know its not my bulbs but something with the lighting.. Can anyone help me out?

not to sound smart but have you actually checked the bulbs? if not if you know how to work a multimeter I can help you out if not I can still help but having a multimeter will help you test out everything for possible breaks in the wiring or anything else

if you replace the original incandescent bulbs with LED's then there might not be a tight enough connection or quite possibly and intermittent short somewhere.

are these lights something u wired up urself? if so im willing to bet u used a shitty ground. check the ground.
No sir. I just replaced the stock bulbs with these leds. They are size 194 like the stock ones. ill check the fuses tonight and if that doesnt work i will need to rip apart my whole dash, and center console to see whats going on.

Before you do that... throw in all the stock bulbs and drive for a week or so. See if it still does it. If it does NOT do it, then its the bulbs. If it DOES, then you got a wire problem.
