Default Help! Anyone know about circuitry/replacing leds?

So this last weekend I'd figure I'd try and replace the radio leds like in a tutorial I found in taco bill's list, and all is well except I have 3 leds that don't go on, and two go out after driving for like ten minutes, but always come back on when I restart the car. Any ideas/help would be much appreciated!

The leds not working at all are circled in red, the ones working sometimes are circled in pink.

This is not going to be fun, but you need to trace the power lines back and see if there is a hairline crack in it. Get a high power magnifing glass and check the power leads, (the lines in the circut board), for any cracks or disconnections. Since you have a group of led's out is is most likly they just pulled off the board. Check to make sure that there are no short circuts and make sure the led's have a solid connection to the wireing. The two that go from on to off probably have a faulty control unit. Like I said, this is not easy or fun, but its the only way to fix it.
