There has been a lot of talk on here about led bulbs, some having issues and others not. Let's start a list of ones that work or don't.

These work for fog lights with no modifications or canbus adapter needed

They also work for headlights with a small modification to the dust cap and no canbus adapter needed.

These fit the drl with some trimming of a tab on the bulb. However there is an issue of them staying on very dim for up to an hour after the vehicle is shut off. Possibly a canbus issue. I would not recommend these.

I recently installed these for the DRLs and they work great. Fit was perfect and they shut off completely when the vehicle is off. No issues and light output was great, direct plug and play.


I'm unable to post the link to them but you can search "Catinbow LED Fog Light Bulbs PSX24W" in Amazon and they'll come up.

Do you happen to have any pics of the DRLs with the new bulbs? Thanks for the report.

I ended going with these for both headlight and fog lights. Output is awesome with beam pattern as the halogen bulb instead of all over the place. Fitment was also great with no dust cover clearance issues.

And these for the DRLs. Hope the link works since I was unable to load it previously.

Any dash error lights using these bulbs?

I have received no dash errors even when accidentally having the plug on backwards for the light. I'm starting to wonder if it would even tell you at all

The lower current draw from LED bulbs can make the canbus system think the bulb is out. Using some LED bulbs requires the use of an additional component to prevent canbus error lights.

Ordered these, just installed. But they suck!!! in the headlight, couldn't get them to lock into the headlight correctly since they kept slipping on the center ring that allows you to change it's angle. Already got it boxed up to go back to Amazon. They worked fine in the fogs tho.

So now I'm left with LED DRL and fogs but OEM halogen gonna order some auxbeam next.

I had no issues with mine. Adjustment was fairly easy and no additional harness was required. Install might suck but light output is great with them. I originally purchased the aux beam's but the beam was everywhere and they have no adjustment whatsoever. Also, they did not fit with the dust cover back on them.

Nice, I just put this brand in my motorcycle. I have to double check, but I think these also have the SAE/DOT approval on my box as well. The beam cutoff was identical to the halogens on the bike.

I went with the auxbeam f16 h11, they fit perfectly behind the dustcap, a lot better than the previous bulbs did.

how do you install these headlights?, what do i have to take apart to have enough room to fit my hands in there lol


You have to loosen three screws from the inner fender by the wheel well, and move move it enough so I can reach under it to the back of the light bulb, trust me took me a while to figure this out. I almost took apart the whole bumper cuz i wanted to change the bulbs so bad.

Has anybody replaced the reverse lights with LEDs that do not stay lit when vehicle is off? I bought some Phillips LEDs and 1 side stays lit when turned off.
