My dash lights are not working. I am starting the search for bulbs, but was wondering if anyone knows if LED ones are available and if so have you used them

I have seen them offered. I do not remember where(one of the "big 3" 928 parts sources). I was considering making the move to LED as well this winter when the car is up and I don't have to worry about things. It may not be of much help, but that's where I would start. The other place you could check is superbrightleds.com . If you can figure out the OEM bulb numbers, you should be able to find a LED replacement. I have been having intermittent issues with incandescent bulbs and want to replace all with LEDs. One thing I remember hearing at one point is that you need to bypass the dimmer, and seeing as most are bad anyway, it may not be a bad thing. I was going to replace my dimmer switch with an adjustable trimpot with a knob instead of the roller wheel.

Good luck

You can be a mechanic or technician...The choice is in HOW you fix it, not THAT you fix it.

Thank you for the information. I suspect since they are all out it might be more related to a connecter or wiring.
