KiddyKatPerson I was looking at my window sticker to check on my headlights. I happened to see it states LED fog lamps and LED tail lamps. Mine is a 2018. Did they put LED bulbs in the 18's? Or are they referring to the decorative light that goes around the tail lights?
.
UPDATE:
.
A little research and I answered my own question. The decorative ring IS the LED tail light. The bulb is a bright, single filament bulb.

Get LEDs that are CANBUS compatible.

Remove the old bulb replace with the led and replace. I have a few pics. If the pics aren't good enough just let me know and when my wife gets home tomorrow I will make a video on how to replace all the bulbs to led. So that way everyone will have a easy way to do there conversion.

Norbert Over year with the upgrade and mine are working well. I think as long as you stick to the recommended bulbs you’ll be ok.

gory Bump. I want to replace the bulbs, but not if it's going to mean they're going to be blinking at some irritating rate or having warnings coming up. Thanks!

Starstreak Awesome! I used your vid. Now the brake lights look modern. Not that I can see them, and only people that it would impress is someone noticing how it turns off/on when I use my turn signals. lol.


UPDATE:
Ok, crap. Wife comes home and tells me there's a warning about a blinker or something being out, and that the speed of the turn signal is 2x faster. So I go to the van and turn on the blinker. Yup. Click-click-click is about 2x faster. The front blinkers (Bulb) are flashing at normal speed, the rear are flashing at normal speed (LEDs). The LED on the mirrors are 2x faster... I turn on the hazard lights. Speed goes to normal. And all lights flashing as it should.


Any easy way of fixing that? I would leave it as everything is on and working, but that warning she gets on the screen will keep bugging her. BTW, I didn't see it. Is it something I can clear or does the warning stay on the screen?
I heard people saying installing some sort of resistor? Do I need them on every location I have a LED bulb? Sounds like that could be expensive? And I went with the Sylvania LEDs because stock is Sylvania bulbs and the website said it works well with low resistance so not to have the high speed flashing /warning.

2deadeyes Thanks! That was the easiest replacement out of all the ones I've done so far

Very easy. Yes just remove the plastic covers on the rear liftgate (from the inside). It's right there. Probably the easiest swap ever! [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/PacificaForums/smilies/tango_face_smile_big.png[/IMG]
