Do the PUTCO LED brakelights work like dual filament globes?
i.e. Do they get brighter as you put your foot on the brake or are they the same intensity regardless if your foot is on the brake or not.

Yes, LEDs with dual filaments will get brighter when the foot is on the brake just like a regular halogen bulb.

Hi,

So I finally tried to put my Nova LEDS in on the weekend for my DRLs, unsuccessfully.....

Only one side (LHS) would work even when I switched the LEDs around! Then both of them wouldn’t work, but when I put the standard globes in, they worked fine..

Any ideas on what’s going on here guys?

We do not suggest installing LED bulbs in the DRL. There have been some forum members experience damage to their headlights as a result of the heat produced from the DRL.

Thanks Steve!

That's annoying, I've put them back on the shelf for the moment...

Can the novas be used anywhere else in the Jeep, may as well as install them somewhere!

also do you have a packaged kit to change over everything to LEDs?

Hi,

There is no actual kit but I can certainly put together the bulbs you need. Please send me a PM with your number and i will give you a call to discuss.

Has anyone changed out the interior dome lights in the 2014 Grand Cherokee? There are 4 bulbs, but I am told 2 of those bulbs are soldered on - I would like to put in the 194 LED bulbs, but I don't want 2 leds, 2 stock bulbs. Has anyone run into this problem?
I am looking to do this as well. Has anyone been successful pulling out the soldered bulbs? How many lights would I need for the whole interior?

Ya - I was able to do mine and another user did his too. It does take soldering, but its not as difficult once you start doing it. Check out page 15 & 16 on this thread:

http://www.jeepgarage.org/f176/2014-replacing-bulbs-with-leds-interior-replace-headlamp-fog-56940-16.html

I don't remember how many bulbs total. I did end up doing all mine - stayed consistent with the type of bulbs and brightness. Got mine from superbrightleds.com. Cheaper than what some others posted on here and the other thread. Works and looks great - couldn't be happier with the look of it.

Get a soldering iron and follow my directions carefully in the thread I just linked to. Let us know how it goes

Can you link a list of the bulbs you used from superbrightled.com? The plug and play are easy, soldering I can do but need to buy another iron mine got lost somewhere along the way.

5050-CW6000: Cool White 5050 SMD LED 5050-CW6000: Cool White 5050 SMD LED

That was the small solderable led's you need to replace the ones that are already soldered. The 194's are standard. Just makes sure you get the "Cool White" as the color, again so they stay a consistent color. The visor lights are these:

F30-WHP-xV: Fuse LED Bulb - 1 SMD LED Festoon F30-WHP-12V : 12V

The 194's are these:

WLED-xHP5: 194 LED Bulb - 5 SMD LED Wide Angle Wedge Base WLED-WHP5: Cool White

Ok let me know if I have this right. I need the following items:

2 of 5050-CW6000: Cool White 5050 SMD LED
2 of WLED-WHP5: Cool White
4 of F30-WHP-12V : 12V

to replace the map lights and the visor lights correct?

Are the floor lights and the lights in the back 194's as well?

That's right! The lights in the backseat are 194 as well. So lots of 194s and follow my instructions in the thread and you will have a complete (and matching) led interior!

Oh, and get extra of those small single LEDs that have to be soldered. They are only $.65 each, so get several in case you mess one up like I did. Better that than the board

Trying to get this right for reference for future people.

(2) (get 4 in case of mess up only .65 a piece) Map Lights - of 5050-CW6000: Cool White 5050 SMD LED
(4) Visor/Vanity Lights - F30-WHP-12V : 12V 194's

(9) of WLED-xHP5: 194 LED Bulb - 5 SMD LED Wide Angle Wedge Base: Cool White 194's ------
(2) Map Lights/Overhead Console Reading Lamps
(2) Floor Wells/Under-panel Courtesy Lamps
(2) Rear Passenger Area/Grab Handle Lamp
(2) Rear lift gate Cargo Lamp
(1) Glove Box Lamp

That should be every non colored light in the vehicle. I am looking to add some ambient floor well LED matched color lights, but not for $300 Mopar kit.

Sounds about right. I used cool white for all my bulbs and couldn't be happier with the look.

Only challenging part is soldering the bulbs in the console. The above link to the thread should help with that. I had very little experience soldering, but I was able to do it just fine. Took a while and was pretty nerve racking. I bought a spare '14 overhead console off of ebay to try it out on. I thought I might be the first one to attempt it, so I wanted a backup in case I screwed it up - but it turned out to be smoother than I expected! Just take your time, read the tips in this thread and the other, and you should be good to go!

I'm looking the 50W 6 ohm resistors, for LED Blinkers and Brake lights. Do I need to put a resistor for every bulb (inlcuding 194's) or each corner or side?
Thanks,

OK so I'm interested in adding some LED's above my license plate and for the reverse lights. There are barely any pics in this thread of how this looks - anyone got any?

Are there any options that aren't super intensely bright? I really only want them to look like OEM LED lights, such as on the 2014 license plate.
