I want to replace back up lights with LED bulbs would like to find some good ones that are cheaper than the ones AM has.

Tried to replace interior dome light with led but when installed they would not turn of instead would burn bright or very faint and it gave a security system malfunction warning any ideas what going on.

Do far no problems with the led I installed in trunk light and licens plate

Don't worry, that ugly license plate frame has been removed. Lol. Any I'm sorry but Raxiom tails look soooooo much better then stock 10-14 tails. Sorry, just had to say it lol.

2nd pic is with oem on left and LED on right
They look good. When looking at the difference, they are much brighter but my problem with Led's is that their coverage isn't better then incandescent. It's harder to see the area Led illuminates over the incandescent. I had Cree LED's as backups on my F150. They were brighter but when looking through my backup camera on my truck, I could barely tell they were on.

Ok, so Im looking for SMD LEDs... 12v? Seeing a lot of 194 & 168...is that what I want? Do the map light, lp light & trunk light all use the same bulb?

The trunk light is different from the dome lights!

It snaps in sideways, I forget the bulb time but it is am elongated bulb that snaps in.

The done lights look like a regular light bulb but they just push in.
