    Re: Reverse lights

    Are the bulbs in that link for both the tag lights and reverse lights? Do they share the same bulb?

    Is this a simple plug and go install?

    Re: Reverse lights

    I spoke with a tech at the Superbrightled site and he said to order this for the reverse lights --->
    http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...se-tower/1128/ and this for the tag lights ---> http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...se-tower/1127/ and in natural white. He said both applications need to be CAN bus.

    Re: Reverse lights

    I just spoke with a different tech at the Superbrightled site and he said that if you remove the bulbs from the tag lights and reverse lights and don't get an error code on your dash (which you don't on the XTS) then you shouldn't use the CAN bus LED's and he gave me several different options of non CAN bus LED's to use. So now I'm not sure which ones to get. I may order several of each type and see what works and return the others.

    It won't hurt to get can bus for both. What was happening was when I installed standard LEDs in my reverse lights they, along with the door handles and some cue buttons, stayed on all night at like 25% brightness. As soon as I put can bus LEDs in my reverse lens the problem went away and everything was 100%. You might want to order the whole car, you have the trunk, glove box, center console, and the puddle lights on the bottom of each door.

    You don't need can bus for tag lights with LED
    If you don't use can bus for backups, they will glow and drain your battery

    I tried it and confirmed on my 14, I then used xenons for my reverse

    Re: Reverse lights

    What xenon bulbs are you using for your reverse lights?

    I was hesitant on buying CAN bus LED's for the tag lights as in the product description on the Superbrightleds site it says to not use CAN bus LED's in non CAN bus applications. You posted the LED's you are using for your reverse lights. Which ones are you using for your tag lights? Thanks.
