Instrument Cluster Light and Domelight Replacement/ LED Conversion on 98 Saturn SL2
This video was a fun one to do. You can use this as a video on replacing
the standard bulb that goes into the socket, or you can replace them with
LED's! Recently ran across a few threads on a popular forum for Saturns
about putting in LED's. Thought this was a good idea. I got my bulbs from
superbrightleds.com. Below are the part numbers:
74-CWHP3 Mini Wedge Base - for the instrument cluster
RL4410-CWHP9 Rigid Loop Festoon - Domelight
I kind of skipped over the removal because there was another video already
made. Props to Richpin06a for a great instructional that helped me. link

following link http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo
The problem was on a 2005 saturn ion with automatic transmission. The key
refuse to return to OFF position and to come out of ignition slot .
Ignition only accept ACC ON START. Watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION
SWITCH SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case ,lead to the automatic
transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it fails frequently. As I got
closer to the microswitch, daylight was running away , my cam focus was
acting out the shifter is totally black making it hard to shoot I had to
speed up and get it done. WATCH CLOSELY HOW I SLIGHTLY BEND THE MICROSWITCH
LEVER TO GIVE IT MORE STRENGHT, i used a needle nose plier . The
microswitch is held in place by a removable plastic clip ( it's got a green
line painted onto it as you can see on the still image just prior to click
on the play icon ) I removed with a small flat tip screwdriver pushing from
the Inside out , no need to unclip top shifter panel. So after all this, I
went for a test ride, the problem disappeared, yes! it works, so far so
good. ( in my case the problem was the microswitch & its lever Inside the
consol shifter assembly ). http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo
