LED headlights

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if this was a topic discussed in the past but I couldn't find it in my search. 

 

My questions is- will LED bulbs work in our journeys without the need for relays , etc? 

 

Thanks!

I think it depends on which bulbs you buy.  I got a set from DDM tuning and I needed the error cancel modules.  Without them the lights flickered on and off.

Has anyone done LED for the brights- I know they are also DRL so will that mess with the LED? 

 

Thanks!

That makes no difference. LED's require less voltage to "turn on". They will be on full bright in DRL mode.

Thanks so do you need capacitor in between the bulb connection. one of the suppliers said you needed to stop flickering ???

So these are just drop in bulbs, no need to switch housings or anything?

leds in a halogen housing is just bad. they cause glare to oncoming traffic and dont help you see any better.

 

either do a projector retrofit or stick to halogen bulbs.

the best bulbs you can put in without doing a retrofit are 9011 and 9012 bulbs

i bought  a pair of led h11 bulbs for 2010. if not integrated to bulb, led bulbs need canbus foolers. Light color is white which i dont like but intensity is very nice. Little bit brighter than halogen bulbs and no glare thanks to very thin led chips. There are two leds made of three little dioded combined together on each bulb.

I tried LED in low beams a couple years ago and they made my radio reception kind of fuzzy everytime headlights were on - anyone else notice this problem or is it just the brand I bought?
