While you cannot use the automotive LED replacement bulbs that you will find at Diode Dynamics as headlights, you may be able to replace your fog lights or daytime running light bulbs with them if you are looking to upgrade to LEDs. Many of the LED fog light bulbs at Diode Dynamics are, for example, completely plug and play models that you may be able to switch out and be merrily on your way.
The thing is, you need to know how to switch them out, as well as which models will be compatible with your vehicle. To do so, you may be able to find out which model of fog lights or running lights are compatible, for which you can consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual. There should be a section on lighting wherein you will find a list of the bulbs that your car or truck uses, and where. In the same section the bulb size and any other relevant information should be listed; in some cases, very precise models will be specified.
However, you can also check the bulb itself, where you should be able to find an identifying part number that you can cross reference to the bulbs available on Diode Dynamics’ website. In addition, you can also check out the vehicle finder tool available on their website, which should make it easier for you to connect the dots and get in touch with a new pair of fog lights or DRL bulbs that are compatible with your vehicle.
By the way, if you do investigate that vehicle finder tool, you’ll see there are a number of categories beyond the scope of this article that are all precision manufactured using proprietary technology and to the highest standards of quality. If you want to add auxiliary or accent lighting to your vehicle, Diode Dynamics provides off road lighting, backup lighting, halos, turn signals and tail light bulbs, among others.
But that is neither here nor there; if you’re interested in finding automotive LED replacement bulbs for your vehicle, we’ve covered how you can find the right bulbs by cross reference. What you might be looking for is some additional reasoning that it should be done in the first place.
Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that you wanted to replace your vehicle’s bulbs with a pair of H10 SLF LED Bulbs, and that they are compatible with your vehicle. In the first place, they are fully plug and play options (for vehicles with which they work) which makes them convenient.
They are also available in cool white and yellow, and since Diode Dynamics’ LED lights provide a true white output, their yellow fog lights are a deep amber without the greenish tint of competitors.
Then, there’s the reliability of lights like these. They are made with custom wiring and solderless terminals; every component has been tested extensively to perform in even the harshest of environmental conditions. They have been tested to perform reliably through a number of temperatures, ranging from -40 to 185 degrees.
Then, naturally, LED light bulbs have the potential to rein in a number of other advantages over the incandescent bulbs (or in some cases halogen bulbs) they were designed to replace. They will last longer, they will draw much less power, and they are very tough. If you’re looking for a pair of fog lights that you will probably never have to replace, then automotive LED bulbs may very well be the way to go.
