Default Troubleshooting dash lights

So I am looking for a diagram of which lights control which part of the cluster. My issue is that I replaced the lights with leds fron led auto. At first only 1 light worked. I removed it and put it in other spots, jiggled pushed so forth until i got light over speedo and tac. Now no light over temp/fuel and to top it off no gas light. I get all automatic lights park/d4 etc also i have door open and rear break just no temp/fuel/gas. Im thinking its a wire issue. So im looking for which bulb lights those aread, and which wires control those. Thank you.

depends how the lights are controlled. incandescent bulbs work regardless of polarity. LED's are sensitive to polarity.

could be an issue with fitment as well.

if you want to upgrade bulbs, i recommend wiring them separate then interfacing with existing lighting control.

you didn't tell us what year/make/trim

Sorry about that. Its a 2001 accord v6. Ex. Im just looking for a diagram of what lights should shine because nothing is labeled on the back of the cluster. Ex would be which light is cruise/ or which one is signals, and so forth. I want to make sure they all work. :-)
