Lightbulb Luxer 1 24 LED for Center Console

Bavauto is selling the similar 12 LED as recently seen in Ebay Store. They are essentially the same quality and prob same company as Luxer 1.

as seen in my other thread for LED plate light
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...97&postcount=2

The once that i got in ebay.. comes with japanese instruction... and package..

from BAVAUTO, it comes either 6, 12 or 24 LEDS.

Beware, for anyone who thought about 24 LED. 24 LED is actually 2 - 12 LED panel with 1 of each type of adapter.

The Bad News....

The 24 LED with 2 12 Panel can only be daisy chain. Meaning.. only one of them will be able to plug into the various adapter they included... the 2nd panel must be attach to the first one.

Unless you are really good at soldering.. I would only use the 24 LED for Center Console... and not for plate light.

for plate light, you will need to get 2 package of 12 LED...


and the good news.. the 24 LED is super bright.. and can work with the center console light.. even when the car is running.. no error... and dimm out ...

Good News:

the 24 LED works like a charm. Much brighter then my previous 168SMT 5 side LED.

Bad News:

even with 24 LED installed in the center console, I still could not get teh map light to work with 5side SMT LED.

Heads up for those who recently receive the 24 LED from www.bavauto.com

It seems that this batch of LED has a wiring problem. when you daisy chain the 2 12led panel together, only one would light up. and if you reverse the bulb, the other one light up and the first one don't

I have not brought this to www.bavauto.com's attention.

its a simple wire switch. the connector between the first panel and the second panel need to be switch... meaning that the gray and white wire are in the wrong place. thats why one would light up not the other.

what you have to do is have patient... and use a very thin flat screw driver.. gentally lift up the white plastic... and pull out the wire and switch them.

its very hard to explain... but it can be done to fix the situation.

you know the orange light that comes on in the car at night. its not tooo bright, just enough to upkeep the atmosphere from the console and dash... i was wondering, is there a way to make it brighter? or can i replace them for brighter ones? i still want that orange glow though, but since my interior is black, i feel the need to make the atmosphere a litte bit brighter. any suggestions?

Thank you Shinchan! I'm glad you posted a solution. Works like a charm. You're truly the LED/light master.

Dear God of light (Shinchan),

I just did this today, i followed your recommendation for this and another thread of you to use BavAuto.com 24 LEDs and other lights (foot well, doors and the little ones at the bottom near the backseats), but when I start my engine, the center console's lights go off. I was very happy with their result, they are very bright, but not of any utility if i can't use them while running .

Have you had similar issues or have any suggestions?

Help!!!

I've read it does not, however, I still need to test mine, since my license plate are trowing codes. i have to swap them with oem to see if the codes still persist. I am planning on doing it tomorrow if i get a quick chance.
