DIY: High-Powered LED Interior installation guide
Tools needed: Flat head screw driver or pick tools
Length of installation: 30 mins
The LED interior kit used during this install was purchased from Mike@F1AutoHaus. I have been testing this kit out for several months to make sure there were no errors or any other LED related issues and everything works 100% perfectly fine just like stock. My sedan kit comprised of the following:
12 LED panels (x2) - front and rear center dome lights
T10 bulbs (x8) - map lights, footwells, doors
39mm festoons (x1) - glovebox
42mm festoons (x3) - visor lights and trunk lights
*Coupe interior kits has an additional four (4) T5 bulbs that goes in the back seat area.
I’ll start off with the easier sections first.
Glovebox- Please notice there is an error in this picture. The blown fuse that you will need to replace is #61, NOT #51 as shown in the picture.
Still having trouble finding the right fuse or your fuse number does not match to mine? Please click HERE for additional video and pictures regarding locating and purchasing the correct 10amp fuse (big thanks to member Jz for writing this up ).
After installing the trunk LEDs there should be two 42mm festoons remaining. They go into the visor lights and should be straight forward. Simply pull the housing down and replace the bulb.
*T5 bulbs for coupe models-
Remove the cover with a flathead. Once the housing has been exposed you may remove all the stock halogen bulbs. Before installing all the T5 bulbs, insert each LED half way to check for polarity so that it turns on before inserting them in all the way. Also be sure that the metal pins make contact for a secure connection. This will save you some time and trouble.
*Front dome (non-sunroof)-
Installation of 12 LED panels (front/rear center dome)-
The T10 based adapters for the LED panels should be pre-installed during the previous front/rear dome steps (not shown in picture above). Connect the panels together to see if they light up. If not, disconnect the two and reverse the polarity. Also, double check the T10 base connection in the bulb holder. Once it’s up and running, remove the red backing and mount it up in the center housing. Replace the frosted lens back on and the installation is complete.
Here I will demonstrate how to install this center dome LEDs board (12 LEDs in total).
After removing the frosted lens, remove the OEM bulb. Watch out if the bulb is hot, you may use a little piece of clothe to remove the bulb. Then you first connect the base of the LED wire to the socket, like this...
Next connect the board to the wire.
Remove the sticker in the back of the board.
Stick the connector onto the back of the board.
Push the whole board upward and the board should fit snugly as demonstrated below. If the board tends to fall off, try to push it forward a little or backward a little bit and it will stay just fine.
Replace the frosted lens back on and you are done.
