Re: LED Equinox - Terrain LED Interior LED Map, Dome, Footwell Lights

Thank you for the information; changed two bulbs to CANBUS and BAM I have theater dimming back.

Also changed my last interior bulbs to LED (vanity visor)

LED on the right

Time to work on more exterior lights

Yes, the fuse type LEDs are much better in the vanity mirror locations. I changed those also, but did not post any bulbs.

Any fuse type should work fine there as they are operated off an actual manual switch in the visor.

Good Picture!

LED Equinox - Terrain LED Interior LED Map, Dome, Footwell Lights

I replaced all my dome lights in my terrain with red led's a long time ago. I recently put in red accent leds under the seats and along the floors and put white led's in the domes. I love it! I have not attempted to swap the visor mirror lights though. We're those covers easy to get off? What bulbs dos you use?

I had a remote with dimming and pulsing for all the accent lights but I managed to burn it out so I put a switch in under the driver seat.

The vanity mirror lights come off very easily. Just a small flat screw driver carefully under one side edge. If you look closely, you can see where there are two tabs molded into the edge.

Thanks! I'll have to pull up super bright led's after the weekend and make another purchase. Working with all the lighting makes me want to go down the HID road rather than blacking out all the chrome as my next project.

+3 years now and ALL LEDs I retro fitted (and shown earlier in this thread) are still working fine. No issues. . no burn outs.

If you search on Ebay for 194 bulbs types, you will find several different types and sizes. Some also CANBUS and other not.
View Post #5 for the interior Dome and Footwell bulbs. Photo 1,2 & 4 LED bulb type will all work. You can tell the one in photo #4 is a CANBUS since it has resistors. You only need one pair of CANBUS bulbs in the front roof lights so the center and rear Dome lights can be regular non CANBUS 194 LEDs as pictured in photos 1 and 2. So just view LEDs on Ebay for ones like shown in the pictures.
A set like these here would do all the interior Dome, map and footwell lights. All are CANBUS so no worries.

Post #6 shows Samsung LED bulb types that I used for back up lights and these can also be found on Ebay.

Lastly, this LED bulb below is the best type for use as license place lights due to the small space in that location.

did the footwell and overhead lights today. Nice difference in the day. cant wait to check it out tonight.

I found the bulb sockets did not always make good contact and I have to wiggle them to get to a good spot. Will monitor that as I drive it.

You might want to check that the small wires on the base of the LEDs are lined up straight with the contacts in the sockets. Also, , make sure the are seated in all the way.
