Let’s begin with some myths surrounding LED lighting for car interiors. Do they make replacement LED's for older models or do we need to change the entire lighting system? Car wiring systems are like a bowl of spaghetti. How can we expect to figure out how to wire in new led lights? The fact is that there’s absolutely no change in wiring involved. When we purchase the correct LED bulb to replace what we have, we simply unplug the old bulb, plug in the new. That’s it!
Personal experiences indicate that LED lighting is a great improvement over conventional lighting. As shared by someone, his 2015 Ford F-150 came with LED interior lights, which according to him are a great improvement over those of his old truck, particularly the light in the glove box and overhead console. He now intends to upgrade his headlights from halogen to LED. He is now looking for dope on the subject. Another enthusiast explains that his recently installed LED lights in the trunk of his Honda Civic and Toyota Camry make a world of a difference when looking for that missing wheel rim special security socket wrench. It feels 5 times as bright as the factory incandescent bulbs. It’s so easy to spot the apples that roll into fender wells. Best of all, when the trunk lid accidently remains open, the battery doesn’t go dead the next morning!
Basic LED replacement lights can give you significant benefits.
- Clean white light as against the standard yellowish incandescent bulb - Distinctly effective when searching for a missing shoe or a screwdriver that may have dropped out of your kit
- A choice of colours and kits to suit your personal needs and tastes
- Better battery and bulb life with significantly less power consumption – Less chance of draining the battery due to human error of leaving the door/boot open
- No special tools or modification needed to replace with LED lighting
Here are five ways that you can modify your car interior lighting by upgrading to LED.
- Glove box
The ease in replacing your bulbs in these areas depends upon the make and model of your car. Most feature a clear, plastic lens cover held in place by plastic clips, an ’O’ ring and/or a set of screws. Use the appropriate tools and gently pry off the lens covers. Looking for further customization? Consider LED strip kits. With LED strip kits you may bathe in a spectrum of ambient colours in the interior of your car, right from your floorboards to your trunk. It’s also fun and easy to install. Stick to LED strips. For extra lighting use a 12V adapter or hardwire the kit into your electrical system. Strip kits also come with remotes that change colours and modes, allowing you to adjust your lighting.
Upgrading your car interior lighting is simple and inexpensive. So, improve your visibility and add that panache to your car.
