Default LED interior light upgrades

I'd like to get more light into the cargo area when the rear hatch is open.

Anyone swap out their stock bulbs with LED bulbs? If so where did you get them from, and the part numbers would be a big help.

Thanks

Hi I got mine from tunerdomes.com and they have a kit that has all the lights for the interior. Great product

For interior lights do not need CAN BUS Error Free LED, only for exterior lighting

You need W5W 12v5W LED

depends on what type of LEDs the OP gets. I think the cheap LEDs will flicker or stay on but very very dim.

I did not wrote expensive or cheap LED bulbs, but only for internal lighting do not need CAN BUS Error Free

Many sellers charge a lot more expensive bulbs CAN BUS Error Free

Yep...I can confirm this! Just did all my interior lighting for less than $20 (no need for CAN BUS Error Free)

And for the OP...you'll need 3x T10 LEDs for the trunk/hatch area. You can get it on eBay for around $5 for some really bright ones.

I think it would be best to have the can bus error free bulbs.

LED error free have built-in resistor that does not give the error in the system, but it is only for outdoor lighting do not know how this will help
