Default Re: Interior Led Lights

All of your gauge lighting are surface-mounted LEDs that are mounted to circuit boards. There's a little more involved than just swapping bulbs. The dome/floor/map/courtesy lights are bulbs, and are easily swappable. For the bulbs, hit up MaxPower...you get a lifetime warranty:

They are not bulbs, they are LED's that get soldered to the circuit boards. I wouldn't recommend doing this yourself unless you know what you are doing.

If you don't have any expierence on soldering circuit boards i wouldn't suggest trying it. There is alot involved. As for the rest of the lights. They are just pulg an play. Simple. Ebay is the best place to get them for cheap. Just have to know what kind of leds you are looking for. I got mine from ebay an they are bright as crap. Or you can over pay for the same product on other websites. Which ever you perfer....

Here



Those are for the screen i dont remember if you need more then 30 just for the screen......also IMO this is the hardest to remove and to put back because of the 4-point connection. if you never done this you could try to do it but this is easy to mess up,it happend to me i had to get a new cluster,because the needles didnt work after i was done.some members here will do this mod for a fee...

Did you read the links I provided for you? All of the information is there for the gauge/cluster LEDs...you actually have to read it.

As far as your interior light bulbs, the easiest thing to do is to actually remove the bulbs that you want to replace. The bulb number is stamped at the base of each of the bulbs. This will serve 2 purposes:
1. You get practice removing the bulbs so you will know what you are doing when it is time to replace them.
2. You will know EXACTLY what bulb part #s you need, because you checked.

There are stickies in the lighting section that list the bulb sizes for our cars, however, for my 07, they were not totally accurate. Luckily, I checked mine myself before ordering.

You can get the LED bulbs off of Ebay, but I would go through MaxPower.

As far as the gauge/cluster LEDs go...READ THE LINKS I SENT YOU!

Cool! Remember to post pics when you're done, or Rani will have to break out the "Ban Hammer"!

Did you know 1Hawaii50 does complete dash led conversions? Send him a PM (private message) if you are interested in getting a quote from him. Many people remove their own cluster and ship it to 1Hawaii50 for the conversion, then he ships it back.

Good luck.

Blazen sold me my LEDs and they are bright as hell. I did the door sill lights, under the dash board, interior lights, and tail lights. I was very pleased with mine and they were easy to install plus he gave me a good price.
