LED Bulbs for Headlight and Driving Lights.

I'm changing all the exterior and interior bulbs to LED. I've already purchased a few for the rear. I need to do the front of the vehicle. Without taking the front end apart first.

I did a search on eBay and came up with this. However I'm not certain which ones are which. Maybe someone who's done this before points me in the right direction.

Re: LED Bulbs for Headlight and Driving Lights.

Are these the fog / driving lights I need? I'm looking for someone who's change headlight or driving light bulbs. I haven't been in there yet so I don't know what connectors are which.

I gotta believe these are correct driving / fog lights though.

Well I ordered every LED replacement bulb I could find- Reverse lights, Tail Lights, License Plate, Dome, Map. All I need is the running lights and side markers.

What year model do you have?

I hope you didnt do the headlights. you will get no visibilty out of them.

If you have a 2012 or earlier you need a 3157 for the front blinker / running light.

here is a link for all bulb replacements ~ just put in make a model.

Re: LED Bulbs for Headlight and Driving Lights.

Mine is a 2012. Haven't purchased any LED's for the front of the vehicle, so far just the rear. I don't want to do the low beam head lights. Just want to change the running light bulbs to LED's.

Re: LED Bulbs for Headlight and Driving Lights.

Mike, why does it need resistor? LED lights don't generate heat at all.

You mentioned where to get the running bulbs from at the end of the video, can you provide the link in this thread? I'm ready to purchase today. I like how they switch from turning yellow light to running white light, pretty cool.

The resistor has nothing to do with heat. The LED does not have a filament so the vehicle's computer would think that the lamp is blown if you install an LED. The resistor mimics the filament.
