Re: Putco LED conversion list

Make sure to purchase a heavy duty or long life 3157 that has stronger filaments for the constant on cycle.

is it just held down by pressure fit, no more screws to remove?

You can even leave the bottom of the box, and just move the top away a little, and pull out the breather tube/fixture which is the piece that lets the air into the box.. It just slides into the bottom of the box, nothing holds it on/in. There are two little push things on the top near the hood that when you just pull it pops up/off of the jeep. Sorry if it sounds confusing its hard to describe.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

KBcarstuff lists the Putco 287431A Neutron Amber 7443 LED Bulb as a direct replacement to the front main turn signals. However, this bulb triggers a dash error (bulb out) and also becomes lose unless you secure it with black tape or similar. This is the second time (fog lights) now that I purchase an LED bulb they claim is a direct replacement. I was smarter this time and purchased it from Amazon, so I am returning for a full refund including shipping.

The lights turn on but blink rapidly and trigger the warning message I guess due to this bulb being low wattage. I had to secure them with black tape because they would become lose and turn off.

I noticed that this part of the lens will filter the light output so the brightness of the LEDs was barely noticeable. My personal conclusion would be that it is not worth replacing the front main turn with brighter bulbs because the light output is limited by the lens (unlike the rears).

Hope this helps someone and saves them some money as well.

I have seen lots of posts people asking how to access these front turn signals; I even read someone claiming you have to remove the bumper. Here is how I got in:

Driver's side you can access from the round opeing in the wheel area.You don't need to remove the air filter. It's a tight fit, but you can get to it thru that hole. Once you disconnect the harness by turning it, you can pull the cable all the way out of the opening so you can easily replace the bulb. On the passanger side, I removed two screws that hold the coolant reserve container. After you remove these two screws at the top, you can push it to the side and access the bulb from the top.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

The 2 dome lights are a 194 bulb, correct? I will update this list if someone can confirm.

Smile Re: Putco LED conversion list

I know this has already been asked a few times, but I didn't ever see an answer? (please correct me if im mistaken) Just curious if anyone had done interior footwell and other interior accent lighting in other colors besides white? Im thinking a blue glow would be awesome all around.. just curious.
Thanks,
J.M.Archer

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Jmarcher: We have had some customers upgrade their footwell lights with blue led bulbs but I would not suggest upgrading your map/dome lights with other colours as the useable light output will be very minimal.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Which LED bulb replacements require load resistors or error-free bulbs?

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Hi,

You would only need resistors if you plan on changing the turn signal bulbs.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

XenonDepot ,

Took my Overland to a shop for tint, HID fogs (3000k), LED DRL's and De-badging and "HE" wanted to change my interior over to LED. I told him "ok, why not?" He did my Dome/Map light. I guess the Map lights are some sort of circuit board with an LED on it and a white ribbon wire. I can post pics if needed. Now may map light buttons don't work but when I turn on the interior lights they all light up white. It looks good but that's not the point. He sad he had to solder in an LED. I would have rather he left them alone or at least asked me. I really couldn't care less about interior lighting. He said he had to do it or when I opened the doors the yellow map lights wouldn't look right. So I guess my questions for you are....

1) When the doors open do the Map lights even come on if the buttons to turn them off have been pushed?

2) Should I put back in the OEM Map bulbs?

3) The shop didn't do the HID fogs cause he couldn't get the yellow bulbs in in time. What kit and bulb (Lemans Yellow color) do you recommend? I'll order yours if you provide a link.

4) The shop also didn't do the DRL's cause he said no one makes a bulb for them. I've read on here about people changing theirs anyway. Do you make a DRL bulb for the 12' Cherokees?

Thank you in advance

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Hi,

1) I don't think that the map lights should turn on. I think that only the dome lights should turn on but I don't have a wk2 so if someone with one can chime in it would be appreciated.

2) It sounds like the guy put in a universal led dome light panel that does not fit properly which is why you can't push your lights in anymore.

3) Go with the Xtreme 5202 HID kit in 3000k:

http://www.kbcarstuff.com/Xtreme-Dig...s-p/xt-hid.htm

4) You would need to get a 3157 LED bulb. I would suggest going with the white color.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Steve,
Ordered both items you listed. Thank you for your assistance. And the dome lights push in and work properly, but the Map lights have a separate button on the console. Those buttons no longer do anything.
Thanks again
