In this article we describe how to install the led lights for the window panel of the Chery Orinoco A3. It's very easy to do.
This product is no longer in stock
Hello everyone, as I had mentioned in previous articles, I bring you the installation of LED lights to the side control panel of the glasses on the driver's side. A thousand apologies for the delay, but as an old saying says "the good is made to wait" hahaha.
These vehicles with regard to internal lighting, are already wired and glass buttons, steering wheel and other elements of the console have the die-cut for backlighting, so they only need to place the LEDs to make it the light in your Cherys Orinoco.
No more chatter, here I show you how to do this work.
1.- Remove the panel of buttons
Pry first on the back (left image) and then on the front (right image). If necessary, repeat several times in this way.
As you can see in the image, I use a paper under the screwdriver so that when I lever upwards I do not damage the decoration of the arm rest.
2.- Then remove the button panel.
Pull the panel up, but be careful not to pull the connecting cable to it.
Do not worry that fortunately this cable left you enough length to handle comfortably.
3.- Remove the button panel connector
The connector has a small lock, press hard with the nail and pull back. It is a little hard and more if it has never been removed.
4.- Disassemble the decorative top cover of the button panel
Turn around the panel and you will find three screws to fix it. Remove them with the use of the spline screwdriver.
Once this work is finished it will look like in the image shown above.
5.- Disarm the keypad.
Turn the keypad and remove the seven (07) screws using the slot screwdriver.
Do it with care, do not throw them away. They are very important because they help to keep this piece hermetic.
6.- Loosen the lower cover of the pendant with two screwdrivers with a fine shovel or with a knife.
As shown in the image above, in addition to the screws, this cover also has (04) four safety locks that keep it closed, (02) two on each side.
Use two blade screwdrivers or as in my case, (it was more comfortable really) a kitchen knife to lift the pressure locks.
As seen in the previous image, the (04) four insurances are already separated.
IMPORTANT: Do not take it out completely for the moment.
7.- Remove the lower cover of the keypad.
IMPORTANT! TO AVOID THE DISASTER!
Turn the buttons upside down, as indicated in the previous image and pull up the white cover of the keypad.
As I mentioned in the previous step, it is important to put it in this position because if you do not leave the buttons triggers.
These triggers are the little white things that are enclosed in the circles of the previous image. If they leave, it does not matter, but it is very annoying to put them back in their place. Keep this in mind for when you have to reassemble the assembly.
8.- Continue disarming ... In this case, the control of the buttons.
Remove the rubber that covers the circuitry. As you can see, it already has the receptacles where the 5mm LEDs go, only that they were not installed.
9.- Solder the LEDs to the printed circuit board.
As seen in the previous image, with the help of a soldering iron, solder the high brightness LEDs in the positions I point out with the stria screwdriver.
Be sure to place them with the correct polarity otherwise they will not turn on. The positive side is the left side and the negative side the right side.
Apply solder only to the underside of the printed circuit board, which is where the electrical contact actually makes it.
As seen in the following image, the positive side is the longest leg of the led.
Obviously, when you finish welding, cut the remaining excess wire.
10.- Reset everything again.
I have nothing left but to tell you that the final result is rewarding, so I encouraged you to do this tune job at Chery Orinoco.
