Interior Lights

Is there anyway to keep the interior lighting (gauge cluster, radio buttons etc) white rather than orange once nighttime lights kick in? I love how things look during the day but the orange is rather old school for my taste.

A question asked many, many, many times (Hint: use Search).
And the answer is still - No.

And yes, I fully agree - the orange is very old school. Consider migrating to 6WB if it is compatible with your vehicle.

You have to change every single led in the car. I did it.

Although I have to say I like the idea of replacing the led bulbs better than all of this coding. For one I have no knowledge of coding nor do I want to take the time to learn it...and it seems to lead to nothing but more issues.

But coding is (almost) always reversible... phisically desoldering and soldering 100 leds isn't! The result is nice though!

Coding is easy. I don’t even speak windows, and I have been doing it for years to my cars with 0 Ill effects. It was the first thing I did to my f31, after washing it.

Coding is just changing out 1 factory option for another. Don’t be afraid of it.
