Why are LEDs better than halogen bulbs?
LEDs (Light emitting diodes) are more efficient, produce less heat, and last much longer than a standard halogen bulb. LEDs on average produce 10 times the amount of light of a halogen bulb. LEDs can last up to 50,000 hour compared to a standard halogen bulb which lasts 2000 hours.
Why won't the LED turn on after installing?
This is one of the most common problems when installing LEDs. Since LEDs are actually diodes,it only allows current to travel in one direction. In other words, LEDs can only be installed one way. If the LED does not light after you have plugged it in, remove the LED, rotate it 180 degrees and reinsert the LED.
Why do the LEDs look like they are still on after I turn off my vehicle?
There are two situations in which your LEDs may stay on after your vehicle has been turned off. If you vehicle has auto dimming lights, your LED lights will gradually dim before shutting off completely. In the other situation, most vehicles, even when the vehicle engine is off, continues to send a small amount of current through the electrical circuits. This small amount of current is enough to turn the LEDs on to a very dim level. This however would not drain your vehicle battery since the same amount of current is traveling through the circuit whether you have halogen of LEDs.
