2 gauges darker than others (OEM)

On my instrument cluster my fuel gauge and the one right above it (Batt volts or something?) are alot darker than the other gauges. It's almost hard to see at night. Any leads to what this may be or whats causing it?

If that's the case I'll be changing all my bulbs to blue LEDs to match my gauges

on the obs they had clear bulbs and the panel had green colored plastic that helped transfer the light, i never tried any other colors to see what it would do

Re: 2 gauges darker than others (OEM)

Blowin if your going to put blue leds in your dash you need to peel your overlay off and get the green stuff off of the back so the colored light won't show through...I just used a sander but you have to be careful not to sand through the black or else you'll have spots...Anyways you'll need five 194 bulbs and one 37 bulb

I would definitely say that you just have a few bulbs out. This just gave me something to do when I'm bored. I'd love for all mine to be red LEDs.
