You get what you pay for. I bought my LEDs from vleds, not one has failed. But they are pricey, I think a pair cost $15. If you have extra LEDs try them. If they don't work I'd recommend vleds or superbright leds.
To prevent those lights going out you need to install resistors:
I replaced the three front dome lights with LEDs a while back. All have failed. First they started to "strobe", then just went out. I have replaced two with the OEM bulbs, but after having the LED light, the stock lights are pretty poor in comparison. Anyone else have this problem? I got the LEDs on eBay but forgot the suppliers name. Should I just give up or try a different LED bulb?
Thanks for any help.
Before I post anything, I always do a search to see if anyone has had similar issues. I have found nothing on the problem I am having with the "strobing" and failing LED dome lights. But thanks for the suggestion:chug:There are others in this forum that have changed out their bulbs for LEDs. Search and you will find the threads. Then contact them and ask those that have made the change about their experience.
No you don't. If the LED does not turn on or blinks erratically, then a resistor is necessary. However virtually every Toyota model can support LED's in place of halogen. If you buy a quality LED, you will not have any failures. I have been running the same LED's in one of my vehicles for over four years.To prevent those lights going out you need to install resistors:
