Engifineer i have been trying to pm you for a while now, but your inbox has been full. You sell Picc2's,resistors,ect for HVAC and gauge swap correct? If so, I am definitely interested in buying from you.
Hey guys! I see nobody's posted on here in a long time, but I have faith that one of you out there will see this and either reply back or shoot me an e-mail ([email protected]).
I'm doing the HVAC swap and I can't get the weird little regulator SMD off the board. I've tried desoldering around it with wick and then tried flicking it with the soldering iron afterward, but it seems really stuck on there good. Please help, as this is the last thing I need done!!!!!
Hold the iron on the place where the heat sink(big tab) meets the pad it sits on (touching both the pad and the heat sink) first until all the solder there liquifies. While still heating, use needle nose pliers to lift that end up.Then heat the pins and use the pliers to pull that side free. Dont pull hard, let the solder melt.
I'm new here so forgive me if this question has been answered before, but I am looking to swap out my boring amber HVAC (and eventually gauge, too, when I work up the courage for that) LEDs to some blues and whites and I am unsure as to what I am supposed to do in regards to the resistors and if I HAVE to change them. I read that the OP said to change them but is it necessary? If it is, where can I buy them?
On the HVAC, if you dont, it will look terrible (Very dim).
I used to sell the kits, but dont any longer ... way too much to do these days and could not keep up with it. You can source the resistors from Digikey pretty easily, or find someone here that is still selling kits. Not sure who is still doing it these days though so I am not much help
