Instrument Cluster Illumination

So I am gradually exchanging all my Halogen bulbs for LED bulbs. I have a '5 Roadmaster and I currently plan on leaving exterior bulbs Halogen. I have changed all the interior lights to blue LED's, including the instrument cluster (and warning lamps). The issue I am running into is the change oil bulb. I actually left that one a halogen bulb, but I am showing a code 95, "Change Oil Lamp Circuit". Does anyone know if this is something like a Can Bus Circuit?

I used a different led, one that didn't have the giant resistor I noticed on the other one. It works great, seems to stay on all the time, but not at full power. All my codes are cleared. I assume there is a constant voltage applied to the bulb to make sure it's good, and probably why I can see it lit all the time. I can only notice this at night, since I used blue bulbs, they are simply not as bright as they should be. They are not very bright during the day, but great at night. My illumination bulbs are too bright, almost too bright during the day! But this is about the airbag light. In case you did not know the airbag light is supposed to flash seven times when the key is turned on, then stay lit during ignition, then flash 6 times after ignition; if everything is working properly. The other LED I used was brighter, but gave me 8 flashes, a constant full power on, and a code 61 and 62 for the lamp circuit.
