**************************** UPDATE ***************************

If you change the passenger airbag LED it will trip your airbag light on the cluster (it did for me at least) but there is a simple fix to reset it

1. Turn the key from off to on.

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

So you used a 5mm for the security light too. Or can you use 3mm for both?

Never thought about that. An it doesn't look like much soldering skills are needed for this job. I still need to get my climate controls done. An that is to much for me. Leds are little as crap..

Yes I used a 5mm for both

You would be fine with 3mm for both

I ordered some other 5mm to see if they help with the output cause as you can see the airbag light I used wasnt very bright so I will update the pictures when they come in
