Upgraded Courtesy Light Bulbs

26 June 2014 - 09:45 PM

I've recently had a couple of LED bulbs I installed into my courtesy light start flickering thus causing me to temporarily fit standard bulbs again.

After a nice soft but bright light I felt that a better solution was needed.

As I have the unit with map lights and LED ambient lights fitted it takes T10 style bulbs and the following item was a perfect fit-

If you have only a single T10 bulb then this is the one for you-

Another option for a single bulb unit, (comes in T10 and festoon versions for all fittings)-

I strongly recommend the ones I fitted, better than normal T10 bulbs by far.

 

The seller is a top bloke as well, he sent the single T10 fitting one by accident and on alerting Him to this He sorted it immediately with no fuss and the replacement was here within 7 days.

Led Side Light Bulbs And A Curious Fault

10 June 2014 - 09:19 PM

I purchased and fitted a pair of LED side light bulbs after seeing a Member recommend them.-

Look nice when fitted and turned on but a curious fault has occurred.

When I press the brake pedal my radio and dash dims (with my dimmer switch turned down as usual) and the sidelight indicator on the dash illuminates so obviously the sidelights are switching themselves on.

On checking the headlights the sidelight bulbs are indeed lighting up albeit very dimly.

The bulbs are each fitted with a resistor as standard (little black rectanges at the base) but I am pretty certain that they are not doing much good at all.

I reckon I need to fit some 3 watt resistors to remedy this, do others concur with this decision or should I bin the bulbs as a bad job?

 

This type of resistor?-
