Re: How To: Install Interior LED Lights (a pictorial guide)

Not to steal the thread, but here's a related post from the JU Forum. I did this install and it's an amazing improvement:

Re: How To: Install Interior LED Lights (a pictorial guide)

So as of now what I understand is that I need:

2 168 bulbs for the license plate
2 906 bulbs for under the dash (courtesy lights)
1 194 bulb for the glove box

What bulbs do I need to use for the back seat passengers and the two i have up in front with me?????

Re: How To: Install Interior LED Lights (a pictorial guide)

^^^ What update?

And going thru reading this thread again, I just ended up useing leds with ALL T10 bases in the interior and plates and they all worked fine (T10 is listed with working with all different small type auto bulbs). 3157 bases are needed for front turn/parking leds and rear brake/turn leds. If that helps out anyone trying to figure out the different stock bulb numbers.

Re: How To: Install Interior LED Lights (a pictorial guide)

I would like to know if any resistors are needed or is it just a simple drop in application?

And like the user above, where did you get your leds from?

Its a simple drop in!

Most get them from vLEDS, but there are also some kits on eBay!

Re: How To: Install Interior LED Lights (a pictorial guide)

I know this tutorial has been here a while, I ordered my ls from vleds.com and got them today. Following Mikes instructions, the install was a snap. Having some difficulty with the license plate lights though. Front dome lights are out of stock till next week so i have to make due with piss colored front domes.

Thank you Mike for the write up!
Thank you Nate for the bulb list!
