Hello guys, yesterday I installed some LEDs for my Intrepid for the tail lights but I noticed that they lit up significantly weaker than the stock bulbs I had. I don't know if they are actually like that or if I need to install something else, like a resistor or something, to get the full effect of the LEDs. I'm wondering if anyone can please help me out because I really wanted to put LEDs but not if they lit up weaker.
Cokey, thanks for the link but it doesn't help me much =( , I still don't know if I need to add something else to the LEDs or no so I decided to just leave the stock bulbs. However I am interested in putting LEDs for the interior lighting, like the map lights, so I'm wondering if they will light up brighter than the stock bulbs or will I have the same problem with the tail lights. So if anyone has done an LED conversion for the the interior lighting can help me out, I would appreciate it very much. =)
Well, today I bought some blue LEDs and installed them on the car. Even though they don't light up as bright as the white bulbs, I gotta say that it looks awesome at night. So I'd recommend buying LEDs and if you don't use the map lights, buy them another color just because they look so cool.
I put LEDs in for my tail lights, and although I don't think that they are weaker, they are more directional, so they seem bright when looking at them straight on, but, they may seem weaker from the side.
I don't know if that's the issue, but just an idea...
