LED replacement bulbs

Picked these up at canadian tire, red LED brake light bulbs and blue LED license plate bulbs.





the tail light bulbs are a bit directional, they focus alot of the light directly behind and dont light up the houseing the same as the factory bulbs. for me this is ok as im going with the putco covers (painted black of course) and they hide the dim lit parts of the taillight due to the LED bulbs. i highly reccomend the license plate bulbs they give a much better look than the regular bulbs. as you can see in the pictures its not a deep blue light just a really nice clean blue touch.

Cool! Nice work! I want to put blue footwell leds as well!
Where did you wire them or did you put a rocker switch?

thank you Mowgli, i wired them in with the dash lights, they came with a on/off/music switch with a sensitivity dial for the music setting, only used 7 of the lights. 2 in each footwell, 1 under each seat, and one in the frontside of the center armrest, there is a plate that pops off and i mounted the light in the sunken hole. i also have a set of red led's same brand ill post pictures of my creation with those when its done.

thx cherokee, i was test fitting the red ones last night with a co worker. im going for a glowing red grill and lower bumper section. with the same intent as the interior ones, to have the lights hidden and just show the glow.

Nice idea, I've seen some cool ones done that way, some with lights in the engine bay, too!

Shecky - I really like the led dome light! Where'd you find that?! and how'd your read light come out? Do you think the interior looks better at night with led?

i'd like to change out all of mine, but hesitate a little bit... how's it working out for you?

the dome light is from Canadian tire, tonight i finally got my second one for the rear. the interior is so much brighter with these lights, they are well worth the money

I'm really interested in doing this exact thing. LED dome lights and the blue footlights. I'm on the Canadian Tire website but I can't seem to find them. Did you go to the store to get them?

I believe the blue lights are discontinued now. And it's getting hard to find the 24 led dome light. I think it's being replaced by a 20 light version

Ah darn, that's a shame. You did pretty much exactly what I wanted to do to my compass.

You could do this with any type of led lights. Might be better with a led strip in each footwell. Also eBay has a bunch of different led panel lights that you could use for the domes. Don't give up lol

hi, how you pull out the license plate bulbs? I tried on my 2012 compass and it's very difficult.

i know this is an old topic, but i would never put those type of LED bulbs in your tail light. if you don't know what you're doing, ask for help, or don't do it at all is my creed.

you need a 360 degree pattern LED bulb. i have them in my mustang. they're from superbrightleds.com and they are just as bright as the factory bulb. in fact, my mustang is on their website with the LED bulbs and the standard bulbs side by side to show the comparason on the brightness and how they light up. here's my car (the silver mustang in the pics, looks like they lost my video in the server change):
