Re: Installed LEDs in Heater Control/Buttons

Im pretty sure the stock leds in my Grand Cherokee are PLCC-2. I have a set of dial calipers at my work I can use to measure them exactly. I was on kingbrights site last week but seems they only want to sell reals of leds in lots of 1000. I only am looking to buy about 50. I will now keep an eye out to buy Osram ones from your info. Thanks.

Re: Installed LEDs in Heater Control/Buttons

You can't really buy direct from the manufacturers as they want you buy loads, you need a reseller. If you can't find any just let me know, they are only small so I can always get them and send them on to you as postage is minimal for that sort of weight.

Blue are the most expensive and they are only about 30p each (50c).

Re: Installed LEDs in Heater Control/Buttons

Getting ready to do this on my HVAC only due to a burnt bulb. I'd like white, with similar output to the stock bulbs. Is this still the best style of LED to use for that swap? and how many are required for the HVAC area only?



Thanks for the great writeup!

Re: Installed LEDs in Heater Control/Buttons

i think its about 4 for the HVAC.

those bulbs come with the resistors and you solder everything together.

but if you search for a post by HAMZE you can see other options where the resistor is already part of the bulb.

Re: Installed LEDs in Heater Control/Buttons

Update: I have had a few blue LEDS burn out already. I believe it was because I covered the resistors in the shrink wrap. Since then I have changed them out without covering the resistors themselves in the heat shrink and they have been working perfectly. I think the heat shrink kept the heat in when they were on.

Re: Installed LEDs in Heater Control/Buttons

I actually just bought an led light strip, it is 2 strip 14" per strip. They match my HIDs, but that's a good idea of getting them in blue and probably hot glueing it along the circut board. These strips are able to be cut to any size, since the leds are completely incased in clear rubber, its not just a sleeve over them. Ill try that next, after I try these along my front air dam along the bottom.
