Replacing lighting in dash

Is it safe to disassemble my dashboard and replace every light with a different color? I don't mind taking apart every little bit and soldering new LEDs or changing bulbs but will it mess with my odometer or anything else when I detach everything from the power?

Car is a 2015 Versa note s plus

If you search around, somewhere on the forum here there has been a link to a PDF version of a service manual for up to 2014 which should be close enough for you. Its kinda hard to dig through but maybe in there you will find some info about whether there are bulbs back there or whatnot. I'm sure its a pretty big job. I doubt the bulbs/LEDs are easily removed on most of the dash stuff like the radio and HVAC controls. May get luck with the cluster but these days you never know. One fella took his cluster out for some reason and when he reinstalled it something got damaged and it was all kinds of screwed up, had to be replaced.

I lucked out that I really like orange, so you won't catch me snooping around behind my dash trying to change any colors. I also like the colors of the cluster. I understand the desire to customize tho. Just hope you have a second car you can drive while you work on the lights because that could be a lengthy project. I am just about done with a tuneup on my beater car so I can drive that and do some customizations on my versa, at a relaxed pace!

Keep in mind that the color you choose may negatively affect your night vision. As far as I know, red is good, and blue-green is not bad.
