LED dash lights

#1 Post by Hermage Coward » Sat Sep 09, 2017 9:57 pm

Who was the vendor that sold led lights for the gauges on our super 356 autos? Are they still in business?

Jules Dielen. Google the topic and you'll find a previous 356 Talk List thread with his contact info.

+1 on Jules' LEDs. Be sure and follow his instructions regarding which bulbs to use in the warning light positions.

My understanding is that if you replace all of the standard (incandescent) bulbs with led's, the dimming won't work. But if you leave one (or more?) standard bulbs together with led's, all is fine.

Is that correct?

My LED dash lights came from Ed Rutherford at Klasse 356. I could not get the LED generator light to work so left the old style in place. All the rest are LED and all the replacement LED lights do dim. The are great for aging eyes.

I had the same problem until I discovered I had the wrong light in the gauge.
