LED Issue

Hey there,

I had my license plates bulbs replaced with LEDs until my buddy pointed out that one was flickering. I ignored it until that side fixed itself and the other side started flickering. Now I took them both out. On the inside I replaced all of my lights with LEDs and the one flickering light is an issue here too. Normally its my passenger side map light but sometimes its the drivers side rear. Glove box and hatch light are stock bulbs. Nothing more annoying than flickering lights. Any easy fix?

Re: LED Issue

check the ones above the rear doors. mine leds were loose in one of those now that I think of it. i had to get some tiny needle nose in there and squeezed them a bit closer together than put bulb back in.



i need to ask....does this flicker happen when the lights are OFF or ON.

Re: LED Issue

It flickers when just the passenger map light is lit by itself and when all the lights in the Jeep are on with it, and only when theyre on. They are the WK package bulbs from AAC and the plates bulbs were from V-LEDS.

Re: LED Issue

its just strange. we all have them and no issues like that. so i would suspect either the bulb or your wk/

kind of a hit/miss thing

Re: LED Issue

So the flickering LEDs were from V-LEDS? If so, they'll send you new LEDs.

Re: LED Issue

So does anyone know what size bulb the dome light LED would be? Sylvania says it's a 194(which is wrong)....
