Default 307 Multi-Function Display (MFD)

Well...

I followed Stubbo's guide here:

https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/...ead.php?t=6456

which thanks to John (cck2k9) can be downloaded here:

www.peugeot-diy.orangeserve.com

And I can tell you this...

I went out and got some long nose pliers, and this made life so much easier.

but so you have an idea the LEDs come in:

Yellow
Red
Green
Blue
White
Pink

Pay attention to this, I snapped off 3. hasnt made a difference for me. The whole unit sits tight and nice, but still, take care!!!


So the MFD looks like the following in different colours




One of the yellow LED's is dead. Sorry about that

Default Ready for comments!!

Cheers John for letting me keep the "flow of thread"

Right guys you can gauge what colours you want from the above pictures. I do apologise again for the yellow one, it doesn't look too bad in the flesh but two of the four I have are knackered so only had the other two working

Another peculiar thing is the climate control - I finally figured how to remove this. You take the two torx out from where the ashtray is. then you remove the bottom of the two part centre plastic trim, and then push the top of the climate control and it pops in. Just turn it and encourage it through the gap toward you.

So the peculiar bit... The bulbs are EXACTLY the same as in the MFD - twistys. I took the three out the back of the pack (aware of the orange filter in, just wanted to try the LEDs) and put in the LED's. And I tried LED after LE-flippin-D and they wouldn't light up. Bulbs back in and then it works again!! does anybody know why?

try bending the connector on the led a little bit, and sure you are trying them in both polarities (sucking eggs there lol) it will be the fact that they are not making contact

I've done all that, it all makes contact. And the ones I used are the ones that I had used in the MFD so they work, and they are making contact, they just aren't lighting!!!

I know I have to get rid of the orange filter and then have the button lights soldered or whatever, but still, the twistys should work!!!!!!

Look for yourself if you like

hmmmm....i wonder if there is enough current getting through to initiate the diode so to speak. are you handy with a soldering iron, try an smd led and see if that illuminates.

but i cant see why they are not illuminating :s i think this is time for captain john and his mysterious power

Haha we can look at this over a big mac!

If you fancy lookin at it be my guest

I thought the same but the standard bulbs are no different to the standard ones in mfd, and don't LEDs require less power?

haha could do, im at home now but im back at work 2morro night and have a few things to do. but from monday i have 4 days off so can have a look around then if that ok.

yeah im thinking something is not right like...as you say leds use less power so they should illuminate.

are you putting leds in all the bulb holders? might be needed to complete the circuit...ive only seen the digital displays on the net, never in person so im not sure on the circuit and that, if that makes sense.
