    DIY dash colour change from Green to white - WIP

    Hi All new to this forum, recently got a Mazda 5 with DPF problem, Removed DPF, fitted panel filter and EGR blank and I removed DPF from ecu flash, along with EGR delete and Stage 2 remap!

    Now i've got the thing on the road, I've been fiddling and have been changing all of the green lights to white! I hate green lights so this was a irritating thing for me!

    This will be a WIP and i have done some already so wont be fully documented! I hope it sparks some interest with you guys!

    I'll attach some photo's shortly!

    As i said i would put some pictures up!

    I’ve only really got to do the speedo and the steering controls, but i need to redo some bits and pieces as i’m not hppy with them!























    You can probably guess what i need to redo from the pictures!

    I was debating on buying one of the new speedo’d where it’s already white etc but we’ll see!

    I ordered a replacement speedo second hand off ebay, and have cloned my speedo eeprom to flash onto the new one. I did fit the new one but the fuel gauge was not working - when powered on bench it done need sweep but when plugged into car the fuel gauge doesn’t work, everything else does, went back to old speedo and that works fine! I have to go try emulate the fuel gauge on the bench with a resistor i believe between 0 and 90ohms. if that doesn’t work, i’ll see what seller says! would be a shame as it was only 15 and listed as fully working!

    Just to note it’s the facelift sort of version where everything is already white which save me a lot of hassle!
