Canada Venza Led Conversion

This is for Venza owners who would like to convert majority of there lights to LED. Since Sylvania Website isnt fully correct, I thought why not help the community with exact Light Bulb sizes.

This was verified with Venza AWD V6 2010 Fully Equiped Canadian Version. but should be the same as the others.

Interior
Doors - 2x T10 Wedge Bulbs (can put up to 2 Levels of 360 degree led)
Visor - 2x T10 Wedge Bulbs (can put up to 2 Levels of 360 degree led)
Map Light (Front Dome) - 3x T10 Wedge Bulbs (can put up to 1 Level of 360 degree led)
Rear Dome - 2x T10 Wedge Bulbs (can put up to 3 Levels of 360 degree led)
Trunk - 1x 31mm Festoon (Try to get 30mm for better fitment, I Used a 5050 Led)
Reverse Lights - 2x T10 Wedge Bulbs (can put up to 3 Levels of 360 degree led)
Glove Compartment - 1x T5 Wedge Bulb (best to use high powered 5050 LEDS or Angled Leds for best Lighting)

Exterior
Low Beams (OEM HID) - D4S Mecury Free
Low Beams (Non-HID) - H11
High Beams - 9005
Fog - H11
Front Flashers - T20 Wedge (Require Resistor 50Ohm to prevent Hyper Flash)

**This will be thread will be updated when I Change more Lights**
**Pictures are to come**

How did you do the glove compartment lights? I got the door off, but there's not enough space to pry it out. Did you pull off another panel to get to that light?

The glove compartment is very easy, just take plyers or 90 degrees/angled plyers and pull the bulb towards the front to pop it out, the bulb itself is exposed without a shielding around it, it's very easy to access especially since Venza has a huge glove compartment. Unless you have extra huge hands then you will have to do it the old fashion way and take out the glove box to see the light from upside down and then take out the socket and unplug the t5 harness and change the bulb. Since it's build on the camry chassis, I believe it should be the same, there should be like 3-4 screws to in screw and then just pull and it pops out. (please take note this reference is to gen3-4 camry, since that is what I did on camry)

Been wanting to convert my non HID low beams to LED on my 2011 Venza V-6

Thank's.......

If you have non oem hid in your car then you I've h11 bulbs, no sylvania doesnt have led bulbs from what I'm aware of, do not convert tour low beams to led because it doesn't provide enough light to see far even with a projector. I suggest to get a hid conversion kit for your low beams, anywhere between color temperature of 4300k (stock), 5000k (German stock color), 6000k (white with a hint of blue), 8000k (white with a little more blue) . And you will see more distance on the road. Of course there is 35w and 55w hids. You can go for 55w for more light output but you will need to run a relay harness to ensure you get enough power to your ballast.

And it is your choice, I personally prefer white light over yellow. That's why I changed all mine, and I cross referenced the numbers on the sylvania site for Venza lights, they are not correct, well for my one any ways and they don't have some numbers for certain lights. And it says follow your owner's manual and owner's manual doesn't give much information, it just says wedge bulb....

Best place for leds?

Hi guys. I'm looking to but some white led bulbs for my venza. I'm looking for a good place with good quality bulbs that aren't overpriced. I used to use kbcarstuff but they jacked up their prices and they are ridiculously expensive. I'm looking for the following bulbs.


White led full interior bulbs
White led courtesy lights
White led licensence plate bulb
White led turn signal bulbs (unless they need resistors as I don't know how to install them)
White led reverse bulbs
White led drls

I replaced all mine using the info from the thread Venza Lighting Application Specifics:
https://www.toyotanation.com/forum/15...s-how-tos.html

Low beam headlight (non HID) H11 (x 2)
High beam/DRL 9005 (x 2) This discusses aftermarket halogen options for this application.
Rear turn signal 7440a (amber) (x 2)
Tail light 7443 (x 2)
Tail light 194 (x 2)
Stop light 7443 (x 2)
High mount stop light LED
Fog Lights H11 (x 2) This discusses HID fogs.
License Plate 194 (Buy one. Best output from flank style bulb)
Reverse lights 921 (Buy two. You must buy highest output led available)
Front side marker 194 (x 2)
Rear side marker 7443 (x 2)
Glove box 74 (x 1)
Front dome 194 (There are three)
Rear map light 194 (There are two, buy flank style bulbs for the best output)
Front courtesy 194 (One per door. Only on the front doors Buy two flanks)
Front turn signal 3157ck (Buy two either in amber, or switchbacks)
Cargo area 3022 29mm festoon (x 1)



I ordered all mine from V-LEDs.com. I've found them to have the best quality and long lasting bulbs so far where other companies have failed. I'm on their Facebook page so I keep an eye out for when they offer sales like 40-50% off and buy them then. Ends up being much cheaper that way. I've replaced every single bulb inside the car except the glovebox for $65CAD including shipping costs.

I have used Vled's for many conversions. They are not cheap but they really are flagship. Check out the sticky mentioned in the post above for more sources.

Hi,

I replaced all interior lights to LED. My questions are:

1. Will LED blow the circuit?

2. Will it void warranty?

thanks

LED's draw less power than stock halogens. They won't blow your fuse. They will also no void your warranty. I have brought many warrantied cars to the dealer with leds, and they haven't batted an eye. Read the Moss-Ferguson act.

How could drawing less power adversely affect your car? (This is assuming all your installs were plug and play, no tapping and running new wires, right?)

The door lights are also plug and play. Just have to lift up on the plastic piece that is covering the bulb and replace it.

For number two, I doubt it. But to be sure:

What is the draw in watts of the lights you are going to add?

How are you going to supply them with power?

Those ideas are still on paper as I am no expert on DIY

This is the light for the rear bumper - powered from the tail light
http://store.ijdmtoy.com/Lexus-Toyot...tor-sku405.htm

for the side mirrors - powered from the signal light
http://www.muthco.com/products/wide-...signal-mirror/

thanks

Neither of the products list their power draw, but they will add a small additional load to the circuits you are drawing from. They definitely WILL NOT void your ENTIRE warranty. But, if you had a problem with either of those circuits the dealer could choose not to cover it, and it would be your fight from there.
