Interior Lights replacement

What is the Interior Light all about?

These are the light bulbs that illuminate your car’s interior. They are commonly found on the roof and doors of your car.

Traditionally, they have been incandescent; i.e., lit by heating the filament. These bulbs are inexpensive and provide good clean light. However, they die quickly and are highly inefficient, losing up to 90 percent of their power as heat.

Some studies suggest that LEDs, or light emitting diodes, provide drivers with safer night time illumination. An LED is a form of transistor that emits light when current is applied. LEDs are very insensitive to vibrations, have a long life, light up much quicker than incandescent bulbs, are extremely compact, run cool, and provide more light per supplied watt than incandescent light bulbs. Plus, they are high efficient. However, LEDs are more expensive.

Keep in mind:

  • Bulbs must illuminate the car so that it can be bright inside at night.
  • Bulbs should be wired to come on when the doors are unlocked or opened.

How it's done:

  • The interior light cover is removed
  • The interior light bulb is removed from the socket and checked for replacement
  • The new bulb is installed into the socket
  • The light cover is reinstalled
  • The interior light is checked for proper operation

Our recommendation:

  • According to research, LEDs use less than half the wattage compared to their incandescent counterparts.
