Upgrading your car interior lighting has become simple, interesting and inexpensive with LED lighting. You can now add that panache to your car without hurting your pocket. You have range of LED lighting accessories to modify the lighting of your dome, map, glove box, step or trunk. To overcome some of the myths surrounding LED lighting for car interiors like changing the entire lighting system, compatibility to older models or wiring modifications, 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!
SEALIGHT LED replacement lights give you the benefit of clean white or colored light in colors of your choice, better battery and bulb life with significantly less power consumption with easy replacement requiring no special tools. User feedback reveals that LED interior lights have been a great improvement, particularly in the glove box and overhead console of a ford truck. LED lights installed in the trunk of a Honda Civic and a Toyota Camry made a world of a difference when looking for that missing wheel rim special security socket wrench.
Being 5 times as bright as the factory incandescent bulbs makes it easy to spot the apples that roll into fender wells and if the trunk lid accidently remains open, the battery doesn’t go dead the next morning. Upgrade to LED isn’t rocket science. User friendly DIY kits can be ordered online. Basic tools such as a flat head screw driver or pick tools are sufficient. Your installation time is just about 30 minutes. Test your LED interior kit for errors or any other LED related issues.
Starting with the door lights, undo the courtesy door lamp with your flat head screw driver. Look for the insertion groove and gently undo the courtesy lamp assembly. Replace the bulb with the relevant SEALIGHT LED bulb. Check for polarity and if the LED bulb does not turn on, remove and flip around. Properly refit the top cover and insert the courtesy lamp carefully into its slot with the light focused to the rear of the cabin. Repeat a similar procedure for the foot wells. For the glove box, undo the lamp housing, disconnect the plug and replace the bulb. Install, reconnect and test for power. If it doesn’t light up, disconnect and flip to reverse polarity and reinstall.
Follow a similar procedure for the trunk lamp housing. For the dome, undo the rear dome unit for full access. While inserting the base into the bulb holder, ensure that the two metal pins of the bulb make proper contact within. Test, recheck and repeat if necessary. For the front dome, undo the sun roof strip. Pull apart the upper roof lining and locate the two pressure prong clips. Depress the passenger side clip and repeat the same for the driver side. The adapters for the LED panels should be pre-installed during the previous front/rear dome steps. Reconnect the panels and check if they light up. If not, disconnect and reverse polarity. Also, double check the connection in the bulb holder. Once up and running, remove the red backing and mount it up in the center housing. Refit the frosted lens back on and refit the sunroof strip. Job Done!
