Re: White LED DRLs

Thanks for the update, I hope a company releases a bulb with at least a blue tint that doesn't take away from the lights ability to light the road correctly.

Re: White LED DRLs

There was a time when amber was considered the only colour for fog lights.

It has got to do with the light colour wavelength and reflection or limiting the same in fog I believe!

Re: White LED DRLs

last night compared the headlights of my mates 2011 wk2 and my 2012 wk2 side by side at the local carpark. The 2011 headlights had a blue tinge, my 2012 wk2 was yellowish. Therefore I am suspecting HID headlight bulbs are different between 2011/2012.

Re: White LED DRLs

After seeing the photos of the deteriorated DRL blub sockets in this forum (with standard DRL bulb). I also checked my DRL sockets, my DRL bulb sockets show signs of deterioration (black residue/ heat damage). I promptly disabled the DRLs. It looks to me like the sockets slowly deteriorate due to heat , the residue form the socket get deposited on the clear plastic and the reflector.
Looks like jeep need to provide a better sockets otherwise the headlight assembly will need replacement. Given that the temperature get pretty high in Australia, I expect GC to show sign of cloudy / burned DRLs within the standard warranty period.

Re: White LED DRLs

One of the first things I did when I got mine was disable the factory DRL's by pulling the relays out. This was done at around the 1500k mark. A couple of weeks ago I put in some LED DRL's and also noticed a very slight discolouration on the globe socket.

So far the LED's haven't caused any issues.
Time will tell I guess, I have done over 1000k's since fitting them, including some very rough tracks in the Vic high country last weekend.

Re: White LED DRLs

Hey Matty,

Which globes globes did you use? do you have a part number?

I to have pulled the relays so it would be good to have a local alternative for globes.

Cheers

Re: White LED DRLs

I bought these ones
Ebay item no. 160839094202
Someone on the ausjeep forum tried them with no issues so I thought I'd try them too.

Re: White LED DRLs

Guys,
That auction has ended, but I wonder if all T25 3157 27smd5050 are the same? There are other sellers in HK selling the same item but not sure what the quality would be like.

Re: White LED DRLs

This was the description in the Ebay add that I purchased,
2pcs T25 3157 27smd5050 JEEP COMPASS Cherokee DRL Daytime

so my guess is that they would be the same.

Glenn,

I purchased these:

I think they are the same. All specs are alike.

Ooh, for $7 I'll give them a go. Still not running DRLs (they're optional, I refuse to argue about their usefulness any more; I like to control if and when my lights are on) but it would be nice to have whiter parking lights when I do switch on my headlights.
