  5. Instrument panel illumination

    C900 Workshop
    Before I pull my dashboard apart, I wanted to see if anyone here has run into a similar issue: One of the instrument cluster illumination globes had blown, so I went to replace both of them with LEDs. They wouldn't light up. I then tried putting in conventional globes in, and I could no longer...
