There is no real DIY but a very long thread about some of it and a lot of BS. When you are ready to do this come back and I'll summarize the install for you. Basically you connect to two pins of the BCM, which are the dome light supply so they come on and off simultaneously when you open your car door.

johnccc is no longer on forum since he upgraded to an Impala, but here is that long thread with eventually the info you'd need around post#30 l0l.

I completed this mod yesterday and after plugging in my connector, my LED's flashed for a second then everything in the cluster went black. Only the other bulbs for the cluster warning lights, turn signals, etc are working. No Tach, Speed or Fuel needle movement either. Any thoughts on this?

-Orson

Update: The LED's ordered were too low of a voltage (2v). I have to order the correct LED's.
