L.E.D problems
Ok, so heres my situation. I ordered 2 led dome or map lights. They are 44mm and are rigid loop i think. I tryed to put one in and it light for about a half a second and started to smoke.. I dont want to do anything else wrong so can some body tell me what to do!?!?!

Re: L.E.D problems

Re: L.E.D problems
i got them from autolumination. In the description it says it will replace 578. And thats what the OEM bulb says..

Re: L.E.D problems
I have had autolumination festoon bulbs (non rigid loop, although I don't think it matters) for two years with no issue. Bad bulb maybe?

Re: L.E.D problems
rigid loops have to hook on, the festoon bulbs just push in...

no idea why they would smoke tho...did u put them in both ways?

Re: L.E.D problems
Yea, but i dont know how to put the rigid loop ones in. I guess ill try to find festoon bulbs. Also are festoon led's universal?
