    led interior lights

    If I installed led interior bulbs would the lights still fade in and out like it currently does. And how do you remove the bulbs from the top by the garage door opener. And do you have to remove the door panel to change the puddle bulbs in the doors

    I don't know if the lights will fade, but i think you just need a small flat head to pop off the plastic covers.

    They fade, just not as smooth as you're used to. I used a flat blade screwdriver but be gentle. You only have to remove the clear cover on the doors and its very easy.

    Some LED's will flicker since the STS fader is a pulsed signal. The interior covers are push fit but a bit stiff.
