You need to send them to someone who can tune them out. It's a software thing.

I recently found a tool disable individual codes in edc16 files if your interested in going down the path of doing it yourself, but the consequences of a bad flash are pretty harsh.

Not sure what you are doing, but coding would be the correct way. However, if all you want is not to see the lights and you are not concerned with setting codes, etc. then there is another way. All you need to do is remove the cluster, dismantle enough to get to the lights and place a bit of well cut electrical tape over the lights. If you want you can cut a small piece of foam to fill up the hole but the tape alone works pretty well. I've had several cars with immobilizer delete and that is how I got rid of the light. If you search you can find instructions on how to dismantle the cluster including removing and replacing the needles.

I didn't know about the codes when I did the swap,so I just removed the wires out of the harness .LOL. Been driving it like that for 2 years.
What is suppose to happen if done that way?
