Automotive Led Bulb Types

Recommended Posts

Indeed, it wouldn't have bothered me so much if it wasn't an annoying job to change them over, so I went back to incandescent.

 

The LED indicators etc remained though, no issues there.

Understandable. At this time, the only LED's in my car consist of the ones I have in the doors and the high powered whites in the license plate.

 

Oh yes, and in my dome lights as well.

The best current LED bulb is called the Elef, you'll find them on Ebay. Very expensive however. Cheaper way is to replace like with like...

Any idea if a resistor is still required to slow the flash frequency?

Yes a resistor is required for indicators due to lower current draw (the ELEF is 3w compared to 21w or whatever for stock). However, many cars have aftermarket LED compatible flasher units available which is a better solution again.

 

See http://autolumination.com/equalizers.htm

 

I would prefer something adjustable such as a potentiometer.

Something adjustable... for fine tuning.
