Interior LED Lighting Kits

There are Interior LED lighting kits available from Jaycar for those who are interested.

Interior lights, footwell lighting, 3rd brake light, tail lights, park lights etc

Various types are available, and you can choose LED's of your choice (colour, brightness etc)

They also have a PCB wedge kit, which may possibly be used for dash lighting.

Follow the link below for more info....

Re: Interior LED Lighting Kits

8psi, mech forums dont seem to be coping well at the moment, so if anyone else has trouble have a look at this instead, its the same thing but from the jaycar site. included with the kits are a pcb (circuit board) and resistors. You have to get LEDs and fittings from a globe seperately. Jaycar Lighting

BlueAvatar,

Yeah, seems to be an ISP issue, the link is a fair bit slow for the past few hours, it should be ok in a few more.....

Re: Interior LED Lighting Kits

Won't you need resistors with most, if not all of the LED's that jaycar has?? Does the kits come with resistors, or a provision to put resistors?

Re: Interior LED Lighting Kits

I doubt you will need resistors to drop the voltage.

Since the LEDs are running in series the 12 Volts will be divided between the X amount of LEDs. IE. if theres 4 LED's then they get 3 volts each :)

I wonder how good they would be for interior lights and stuff, since they produce very directional light. I've heard of people getting fine sandpaper and roughening up the led to diffuse the light a bit more.

it depends on the type of LEDs you use, and the resistor is more to limit the current (so it doesnt toast the LED). I'm sure it comes with instructions anyways.
