The stock backlighting of the Honda S2000 dash controls is an orange glow resulting from incandescent bulbs and filters. Using the stock incandescent bulbs system, it is impossible to change the backlight color of the stock controls to a non-orange base color using filters alone.

Qube Engineering has developed a modification process that allows you to change the backlight color of the dash controls to blue, white, red, yellow, or green, or indigo.

You may also specify an increased brightness level of your dash controls.

What dash controls can be modified?

The backlight color can be modified for all interior controls. These include...

Audio Control Switch and Mute button Indicator Light
Engine Start Button
Cruise Control Switch and Indicator Light
Rear Window Defrost Switch and Indicator Light
Climate Control Switch and Indicator Lights
Roof Switch
Hazard Light Switch

The exception to this is that the upper dial icons of the Climate Control must be red and the lower dial of the Climate Control Module must be a blue to red gradient. The brightness of these dials is modified to match the brightness you choose and the color quality of the dials is improved.

For more information on changing the color of the main gauge cluster, please visit the Qube's LED Gauge Cluster product page.

Do the controls still function the same?

For the AP1 (2000-2003), yes. The controls still function the same. The backlight is off when the headlights are off, and on when the headlights are on. The only difference is the color of the backlight and an optional enhanced brightness version, where the backlight is brighter than stock.

For the AP2 (2004+), it is not recommended to use the OEM dimming function to adjust the dash control brightness with the LED dash controls. Because various resistor values must be used for different areas of the dash controls, the controls will not all dim in a uniform manner. The dash controls are designed to have uniform brightness when using the brightest setting only.

What are the drawbacks?

Qube’s LED Dash Controls require light modification to circuit boards of each switch assembly. The modification can be undone with some intermediate soldering skills and mechanical skills. If you don't feel comfortable with a soldering iron or tinkering with electronic assemblies, you may exchange the modified parts for stock parts for $50 + Shipping and Handling.

For the AP2, the use of the OEM dimming function is not recommended with the LED dash controls.

What is the cost?

Qube's LED Dash Controls are priced per item. The total cost will vary depending on what controls you need. please visit the Purchase Page for the latest pricing information.

How do I get them?

Qube's LED Dash Controls are offered exclusively through a core exchange program. Upon payment, a finished set of modified interior control assemblies will be shipped to you for installation. Once you complete the install, you will ship your original unmodified interior control assemblies back to Qube Engineering.

How do I install it?

I’m a klutz. Can I do the install myself?
