*The brake warning light is NOT replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor lights i just put the scott drake LED kit for my 1988 mustang and they dont light up the dash like the stock ones did, have a look for your self and i think there should be more of the blue bulbs to maybe fill in the dark spots but i followed the video to a T and yeah i had to change it and moved them around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great but some issues I really like how bright my dash is now, but are some things that could have been done better. I don't get why the high beam LED is red and not blue as it should be. One of my lights was DOA, but I was more concerned with the lighting of the gauges than the trouble lights so I just repurposed a light. I really wish they took the time to indicate positive and negative on the LEDs so that wasn't a chore left to the purchaser. I am fortunate that I have a power supply where I can set the voltage to test the bulbs. I also wish they mapped out the negative and positive traces on my 89 gauge so I didn't have to guess. The demo video was helpful, but only showed a gauge where the traces were labeled. Here is a photo of the back of an 89 gauge where I indicate negative traces.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They are ok I just installed these on my 91 GT. I'm unhappy with these. The bulbs do not properly light the needles on the gauges. Installation was easy. The video helps a lot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointment I purchased these Scott Drake l e d's and while they are very bright....The leave shadows on the instruments. To many areas they don't light up because they only shine forward not in all direction like an original bulb or an l e d that lights on the sides. I purchased some l e d's that do shine in all directions for a fraction of the cost from e bay and they light just as bright and EVENLY!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money With these LED's only shining forward they don't light up any of the needles. My temp needle was the only one that was lit up. The gauges lit up fine. If you are going to go with LED's, get the 194 style that shines forward and to the sides. Their video is VERY misleading on the final product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not better than stock bulbs I purchased these for my 93 Cobra hoping to brighten up my gauges at night. The kit brightened my speedometer, Tachometer, and temp gauge. It did not brighten my amp, oil pres, or fuel gauge. My bright indicator is dimmer than stock and now red. I cannot recommend this kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUGE DIFFERENCE!!! I bought these lights a while back and it couldn't be a more night and day difference! Just check out the picture! Love this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great lights Bought these after seeing the light difference on CJ Pony. Great lights and totally changed the light effect in the dash. Just wish that Drake would have put a blue light in the kit instead of the red one for bright light indicater.

Product Questions

What is your thoughts on the best way to change gauges in a 1985 Mustang from the 85 mph gauges to 140 mph white gauges for example? What are your recommendations on what gauges/inserts to use? 

Asked by: Maniac
You will need to find a 140 mph instrument cluster, the speedo gear in the transmission will have to be changed along with the cable gear.

For the instructional video you put up is for a 91-93 and the back of the panel is labeled, the older models are not and are slightly different. Could you possibly put up diagrams for the older panels.

 I see you put white leds in on your video and the dash illuminates in green? I understand the lenses in the dash are green,hense the green illumination . What will happen if I install blue,green or red led bulbs?? what color with the dash light up ??

Asked by: Daves89lx50
You may still see a little of the base LED color, but what ever color you choose when mixed with the green lens it will definitely alter the shade to a combination of the two colors.

We recommend testing the bulbs before you reassemble your instrument panel. That is what Bill does in the video.

Scott Drake LED Gauge Light Kit 1979-1993 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: If you own a fox body Mustang, there are plenty of options for upgrading your exterior lighting, but up until now, there's been very few for the interior. We recently installed Scott Drake's LED interior light kit on a '93 Mustang LX, and we're so happy with it that today, we're going to upgrade our gauge cluster using our LED gauge light kit.

The LED gauge kit includes all the bulbs necessary for your '79 through '93 gauge cluster. It includes bulbs for the gauges themselves, available in white, blue, green, or red backlight. It also includes bulbs for your warning lights, your high beam indicator, as well as your turn signals.

For this installation you'll need a Phillips head screwdriver, small flathead screwdriver, a quarter inch ratchet, eight millimeter socket, right angle driver, and a T20 TORX bit.

To install the bulbs, obviously we've got to remove the cluster. We're going to start by removing our steering column trim, then our lower trim panels, and then finally the gauge cluster housing. The column trim is held on by two screws. This part here will be held in by three bolts. Pop that off. Now, we'll remove the metal plate, its bolt is located here and another one over on this side. There's a support brace attached to the column trim that has one Phillips head screw, located right here. Now, I'll remove the top two screws that hold the housing to the dash.

Before we can pull off the cluster trim, we've got to remove the switches. Using a small screwdriver, just go behind the back and pop them out. Now, we're going to remove the housing. Now, we're going to remove the cluster from the car by removing these four screws around the outside edge here. Make sure you remove the screws that are on the white tabs. The other screws hold the bezel and the lens together. We're going to reach behind it and disconnect the plugs and the speedometer. Then remove our cluster.

Once you have your cluster out, if you look carefully on the back of the circuit board, each bulb is labeled for what it is. We're going to start with the illumination bulbs, which are located here, here, two in the middle, and two on the end. Each one of them has "ILL" written right next to it. Simply turn it to remove it. Remove the old bulb, install one of our new LED bulbs, and reinstall.

Modern bulbs are going to be polarized. What that means is if you install it and it does not work, you got to remove it, flip it 180 degrees, and reinstall it. There's two ways you can test your board. You can install all the bulbs, plug it back in the car and see which ones work. The other way is to take test leads hooked up to a 12 volt battery, figure out which terminal is ground, and then put it on the corresponding ground on the circuit board.

We figured out that this terminal here is going to be ground. If you look at our circuit board, on this side of where it says illumination, if you follow the board up, you'll see it says "GND" for ground. That's the grounded side, so if we install that on that side, it should work.

Next, we'll replace our check engine, low oil and low coolant lights. Next we'll replace the two turn signals, as well as our high beam indicator. We're ready to reinstall in our Mustang. I'll reinstall the cluster. Before we put it all back together, we're going to plug in our headlight switch. We're going to see if everything works. We're going to make sure you reconnect your speedometer. Now that we've tested everything and plugged the speedometer in, we can reassemble our cluster. Put the housing back on next. Make sure you fish the harnesses up through for the switches. Now put the lower screw in.

With that, your installation is finished. Our LED cluster lights made a 20 year old cluster look better than new. Installation should take you only around an hour. You'll be back on the road in no time.
