Interior Leds Help
 
http://www.v-leds.com/Shop/Control/f...481/viewCart/1
Looking to install interior LED's from V-Leds.com. Just want to make sure i get all the right parts for my 2009 Jeep Laredo. In the link, the first is for the rear map lights, the 2nd is for the front map lights and the last is for the liftgate. If anyone can vertify this, it would be greatly appreciated. Dave

Hey Dave, One thing.

Some have experienced a dim glow after they turn off the Jeep.
its becuase the LEDs dont draw enough power.
2 workarounds:
1. keep one bulb, usually the one on the rear hatch, original.
2. add resistors to the circuit to act like #1.

otherwise, you should be plenty happy with the LEDs.

Add resistors where? Can you explain, is it to each bulb or just one resistor needed?

I ended up making an LED for the cargo area, I had an extra 18smt LED 9005 bulb I took apart and put the tower on a T10 base. I notice once in awhile the front under dash ones will stay dim but for the most part they all shut off.
