Notes

  • Do not touch light bulbs with bare hands as that can shorten the life of the light bulb. 
  • Installing LED bulbs:
    • If you are upgrading to LED light bulbs, and the bulb doesn't turn on when you install it simply remove the LED bulb and rotate it 180 degrees and reinstall it. 
    • Certain vehicles may trigger a fault message stating faulty or burned light bulb when the original bulb has been upgraded to LED. If that is the case, use halogen bulb or get an Error Free LED bulb
