WJ Interior LED Lights
 
I just put in all LED interior light in my WJ and they look amazing:D. But I forgot how to count and missed one, I got it in the next day and now when driving the lights on the EVIC and courtesy lights stay on but very dim. I dont know if the truck is producing a couple of volts which is enough to light up the leds but not the stock bulbs. I will post pics soon

Nice!
From where did you order the LEDs?
To fix the LEDs staying dim you need to hook up a resistor to one of the lights. I forgot what Wattage and Ohms but it's somewhere in one of threads on this forum.
Let's see the pics.

yo man thats normal me and my brother both have LEDs in our jeeps and they are dim when you have the car on but dont worry it will turn off once you stop the car .. i wouldnt waste your time with the resistor ya know? i mean it doesnt effect the battery because they barly produce power... and btw what color did you do and def post a pic man i gotta see

yeah I didnt even bother with the resistors, Ive had them for about a year now with no problems, I like the nice glow they give off. In my jeep, all of the interior lights stay dim except the one's on the doors. Is this kind of what yours look like?

yea, I know alot of wj owners, that have this happen to thier LED interior lights but they, including me, dont see it as a problem. Ive gotten used to it and like the look it gives off. One of my friends tried the resistors and it kind of worked, but the light in the cargo area still stays dimmed however the rest got fixed. So its your call if you want to try the resistors.

I ordered all the lights from superlumination.com I liked there website setup much better than V-LEDS so nobody shoot me for not using them.

Really? I was considering swapping my white LEDs to red LEDs since my truck is red. Are they bright enough?
