Problem:Interior LEDs flashing
 
Lately my interior LEDs are flashing when the are on. I've checked the connections and everything seems tight. It started as the right rear map light, the blinking had been going on for a few weeks. Now that has stopped and the one near the pedals has started flashing.

Anyone have any thoughts on why?

:confused::confused:

I left the original cargo lamp bulb in.

I got them from a guy on ebay.

I had the same problem tman4024... the issue is neither the connections nor your Jeep. The problem is the crappy LEDs that you as well as I also bought. These things go bad after a few months, they are just poor quality. I dumped all mine about a week ago and went back to the factory incandescent bulbs for now until i order some better quality ones from vleds.com. I even had the same issue with the license plate ones. First purchase i made was new license plate bulbs and have had them for quite some time and so far so good. Im seeing how long they last before i go and buy a new replacement set for the rest of the Jeep.

Yes, I've had the stock one in the cargo area and experienced the flashing.


Looking at later posts looks like its a byproducts of the cheap LEDs
