Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

Thanks Whateverworks. I just purchased the High Power 194 LED Bulbs per your suggestion for my 2011 Overland. Have you replaced the interior lighting with LED's yet? Would love to know what bulbs to purchase and how the install went. Thanks!

Check out these All new Original Philips 194 Blue Vision LED Bulbs. These would work in license plate applications.

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

This would happen to me....

I pulled the old bulbs out and when I tried to install the leds the socket went right into the housing. Now it stuck somewhere in there and I have no idea what to do...oh and the stealership wants to charge me $75 to fix even though my car is certified and has an extended bumper to bumper warranty.

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

Just replaced my oem (2825) 194 bulbs with my new LED 194 bulbs in my 2012 Jeep GC.....i've used a certain bulb site for a really long time nothing but great things to say about it....cost me $4.99 a bulb and they fit perfectly and are 6 LED bulbs....saw the pictures of the LED bulb that the original person who posted this thread and didn't like them...i've had people at my dealership use them and they aren't that bright and are way to expensive... the bulbs i got are in the picture below....the website is http://autolumination.com/
like i said the bulbs work perfectly and are extremely bright...just figured id give everyone some more options on where to buy from and i personally know they fit well since i've heard that many people have had problems fitting certain bulbs because of the angle the bulb sits at....so here you go

These worked perfectly for me, and the color is not too blue or too bright. The color mimics factory HID color very well. (cool white)

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

What are the dimensions on this LED? Specifically the length in mm. It actually looks fairly long in your pic. Thanks!

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

unimatrizxer0 : What application are you looking to install the LED bulb in? Which automotive LED bulb are you looking at specifically?

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

Anyone else having issues trying to get the cover to come off? I finally got it unlatched but it only stays at a 45 degree angle and won't come off like how it is in the pics in the OP

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

These Philips T10 LED bulbs have been a really popular seller on this board for the license plate as well.
