I started using these guys:

https://www.lasfit.com/

Look up what you need there or on eBay just put there name in the search and what bulb you need. Their CANBUS turn signal lights are great no errors and all high-quality stuff(have them in my compass and Tahoe). Not the cheapest but they are really helpful on messages and take back returns easily. Just did my whole Tahoe with there products with new headlight and had to return some stuff it was no problem at all.

Bought some Chinese cheap crap for my DRL on the compass and they stay on after the car is off. Going to replace what I can from these guys then go from there.

so, for now, Tahoe is completely done with the company above no errors. the compass only has CANBUS turn lights installed but will come back and let you know how everything looks and works on the compass once it is done.

PS: doing a project to switch my reflective headlight to projector headlight from some Chinese manufacturers, that thread is in the mods area if you want to just keep an eye on it. more DRL on that headlight and will have turn signal LED in the headlight as well. so we will see.... haha

Do you happen to have pics of the beam pattern? Just curious how they are compared to the stock bulbs.
I have done mine with cheap LED off eBay just to kind of see what would happen as I always have done LED in projector headlights and never reflective because you are always told not to do that.... ;)

It is pretty bad IMO beam pattern wise... it is like having my brights on as when I flip on my brights it doesn't give me any more brights because my lights are already shooting that high... :/

My fog light seem to suffer as well, they point down but my low beams are just throwing light everywhere for me to notice there help. :( I am thinking of getting yellow LED fog bulbs to see if that helps me find out what my fog lights are doing.

Personally, I might be switching back soon in my low-beams. Thoughts on yellow LED for fogs? yeah or nay?

I got IronWall LEDs for high beams, low beams, and fogs for Christmas. Hoping to get them installed tomorrow. Will let everyone know how they do

IronWalls are garbage. Fitment issues in the factory housings, then they scattered light like crazy once I did get them in. And they put out less light than the factory bulbs.

Thanks I'll give them a shot. You have them for the front turn signals without any resistor?
Yes, no issues or codes here is the link. Again search eBay for what you need and just add "lasfit" before or after the blub you are looking to exchange.

Link front blinker no error: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-7443-7444-Switchback-No-Hyper-Flash-LED-Turn-Signal-Corner-Blinker-Light/123474473039

Used these same CANBUS blinkers on my wife Tahoe they are always on turn signal blub so they actually shine white while always on then switch to amber when we turn. Top notch stuff, will give you before and after of the taillight install. No, need for a resistor for the front turn signal on the compass, but the back is a different story as you don't want a yellow light although it is just white 7443 blub. I got a red LED 7443, tried to install without resistor but no dice. Links below on what I am going to do 2nd install with. Doing the reverse, I did not get a resistor for the backup bulb as it doesn't blink it is an on and off only. Will update with before and after pics and if the reverse white LED needs resistor as well. Links for all I used below.

I also did my inside swap to LED a while back with some generic china white LED on eBay... was ok with them they were not the best and left a glow. Thought that was normal, but found out that is due to crap LED's. Picked up their's and they are expensive, but I needed some for the Tahoe anyway. They are so much brighter it is shocking..... I left the dome ones in of the old china ones, will do before and after shots(and the license plate area as well). No afterglow either anymore!

------------------

These LED's are not bargain prices, but dam they are good LED's!

Anyway does anyone have DRL LED's that won't glow? Mine glow... I need to bump this china junk... I will do Lasfit product but wanted to see other options from other people.

will post pics when I do the conversion.

Link? I am thinking of trying doing cheap LED yellows for my fog lights. I have cheap white LED's in the fogs now... but the low beams throw light all over can't tell if the white fogs are even doing anything. So I am going yellow :)

Did they work in high beams? Have you seen my post in jeep compass modification area? Little of a cluster right now but looking at getting these and they are moving them to work with my compass or our compasses that have reflector housing. I will keep an update here and there on what happens to that mod. eBay and PayPal have me covered if things go south.

These look like them:
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/123149427571

I didn't try the high beams. I tried installing one low beam, had fitment issues, so I swapped to the other. Finally got it in, just to have less light and more scatter. It was daylight out, but I was in the shade. I could clearly see the factory light output and cutoff, but the new LED I couldn't see at all. I originally thought it wasn't even on, until I noticed a slight shadow on the wall. I did notice the LED on this bulb was slightly higher than the filament on the factory bulb. That probably caused the excess scatter. After all of that, I didn't even bother with the rest of the bulbs. Personally, I'd go somewhere else for a quality LED.

Yeah I have seen those on eBay, for high beams you need the low profile 9005 LED blubs, I am not sure even HID would fit 😕

I used these: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/332041452404

To fit the High beams you need LED without a fan. I don't think they help much and I don't feel like putting in the old halogen blubs. Again it is hard to see if they are helping because of my lowbeams.

Bummer man hope you find some

I've got a set like those for my fog lights. Again, I was too frustrated with the one install that I pretty much gave up on the IronWalls brand, so I haven't actually tried them. Maybe I should :think:

Wait you got 9005's as well? That might be the fit problem, the low beams and fog lights are H11.... :/


Anyway, just try it for the high beams and wait till night to try them out before you take them out. Might surprise you! As for the other H11 you have, why not put them in the fog area and see if you like the light. Better than trying to send them back and pay for the shipping :)

The foglights area takes a low profile blub like the high beams, but there is a ton of room so you can install those that have a fan and bring the connector back down to the harness. You shouldn't need resistors for anything, only things that blink like turn signals and such.

I meant that style, as in the LED aimed at a reflector inside the bulb. I have a set of H11 for the low beams: 4 sided LED with a fan. A set of 9005 for high-beams: 4 sided LED with a fan. And a low-profile H11 for fog lights: reflector inside the bulb. I'm working on getting them returned and getting a different brand; probably the ones mentioned earlier in this thread

Ok wanted to update this thread to keep the info flowing here and also keeps it in one place.

The whole car is now LED inside and out. The CANBUS system only checks for the following bulbs and everything else is plug and play. (For me at least)

Front turn signal (amber blinking bulb next to DRL) 7443 use these, only get code show up when you sit a long time with it on at a turn light, it will warn you then go off again right away. https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-7443-7444-Switchback-No-Hyper-Flash-LED-Turn-Signal-Corner-Blinker-Light/123474473039
Taillight brake/turn signal (the breaking bulb is also the turn signal) 7443 I am looking into this more I want a red blub but not sure on china quality of CANBUS no code ones in red. Using this with a moded resistor double clip for the movement but don't like the loose fit on the resistor: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-2x-7443-7444-Red-LED-Tail-Light-Bulb-for-Chevy-Traverse-09-17-Sonic-12-16/123353209141
Parking lights (front and back) T10 you have to use CANBUS ones these worked great no codes | Red for the back: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-T10-Red-Color-LED-Interior-Light-Dome-Trunk-Side-Marker-License-Map-Bulb/123004561458 | Amber for the front: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-2x-194-T10-Amber-LED-Side-Marker-Light-for-Chevy-Silverado-1500-2500-3500/123276050987 PS: If you just use white it doesn't look good, the white bleed through the plastic and you can tell it is white. looks nicer when you use the right colors.

Everything else that I have switched has had no need for CANBUS special bulbs. List below on everything that didn't need special bulbs or resistor.

DRL (2504 just picked up cheap eBay one works fine)
Headlight low/high beams (H11 low beam-again cheap eBay they work ok going to switch to projector HID anyway, 9005-done get one with a fan it won't fit)
Fog Lights (H11 cheap fog yellow on eBay work good, they are meant for fog, get without a fan for easy install with a fan for longer bulb life and brighter)
Reverse lights - 7443 - Here is what I used no codes no problems - https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-7440-7443-LED-Backup-Reverse-Lights-for-Honda-Accord-96-2012-CR-V-97-2016/122852812612
All interior bulbs (just FYI these are all T10 you need 7 in total, don't know the vanity mirror bulbs yet. Used these after I had china glow and my kids wouldn't shut up about it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-T10-168-194-LED-Interior-Light-Bulb-License-Map-Side-Marker-6000K-White/123043426833 To be honest they are much brighter and better overall so thank god for my kids. :pat:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The projection HID aftermarkets are here and i updated the other thread, I will just link it because I am being lazy and tired of typing ;)

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.

Got these bulbs and they're working great in the reverse lights. They don't stay lit when when not in use. Thanks for the heads up
no problem! They make a quality product!

I installed my eBay LED headlights today. They're MostPlus brand. I got a kit that had 2 sets of H11 (low beams and fogs) and a set of 9005 (high beams). The low beams and fogs I installed after a couple hours, but the high beams don't fit. The fan on the back of the LED is too large and hits the housing. I've added before and after pics; I'm roughly 5ft from the wall. When the LEDs are aimed right, they have a similar beam as the halogens. They look brighter in the pics, but it's not as noticable in person. I kept the factory bulbs, so if I don't like them, or feel they have too much glare, I'll send them back.

Hey all - random question here.
I have installed LED DRLs in my 2019 Compass as well as Beamtech LED Fogs.
I do have the premium light group which includes the Bi-Xenon HID Headlamps.

My question is, I cannot for the life of me get the DRLs to stay on when the headlights are turned on.
I can get them to stay on in all other light modes but for whatever reason the two will not stay on together.

I have tried 3 different types of LED DRLs and have the same luck. Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks!

I think the DRLs turn off when the headlights turn on. I'd have to double check against my Compass this weekend, but I think that's normal operation

@RadRacer I figured out the vanity mirror bulbs and removal. Get your plastic trim pry tool, go to the passager side just in case you somehow screw something up and break some plastic. Take the plastic pry tool and get under the plastic at the BOTTOM and pull up. If you do from the top you will break something. Once you get the bottom free then pull out a little bit then down to take out the plastic mirror and hinge. Once you do this, both bulbs will turn on they are T5 bulbs. I got these off eBay because they did not look like total crap.

T5 Vanity bulbs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-6000k-White-T5-37-74-LED-Visor-Vanity-Mirror-Footwell-Light-Bulbs/321977882815

Now once you replace them they actually go all the way through where the regular bulbs sit. Just push them in till it seems right to you on where the regular bulb was and test fit the mirror before putting it all the way back on. Other than that, easy replacement!

My DRL were throwing a fault finally, they were crap anyway from China(they had the glow). I replaced with my own recommendation of last bulbs, they are overkill. No more codes and no more glow :)

2504 DRL bulbs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LASFIT-5202-2504-LED-Fog-Driving-Lights-Bulbs-Kit-for-GMC-Canyon-2015-2017-60W/122665091889

They go in hard you really have to push because the rubber ring to keep water and moisture out is aggressive! Either way, it works great!

Lastly, I still need to do the headlight replacement :( I am also looking for new fog light LED that is yellow. I have some now but they leave a small glow, although I did pay good money for them and they were USA made :(

That's it for now, good luck @RedRacer
