Map lights, or the pair of lights above your front seats, use incandescent bulbs from the factory, giving them a yellowish color. By replacing these factory bulbs with LEDs, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a cool white color, just like the map lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMD5 bulbs or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your map lights.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!



SMD2: Compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips mounted directly to the base connector. Direct replacement, plug and play.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

 SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with 194/T10 adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. The board-and-adapter design allows for extremely high brightness compared to a simple bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


These LEDs are available in many crisp, bright colors. White and warm white are the most popular colors, for a modern look with maximum visible light.

You can also select blue, red, green, or amber to add a unique look to your interior. Please note- when ordering these unique colors, we recommend moving to the next-brighter stage for acceptable light output.

Color Reference Banner


Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
HP3: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs!
SMD12 Board: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While  Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  1. love the look Review by JBoogie

    Went from 6000 cool blue color to these pure white ones. I like this natural color white better on the interior than the cools. The quality is great. (Posted on 10/18/16)

  2. Better than the competition. Review by TNRTR

    I was having trouble with one of of the dome lights in my RTR. The car came with a retrofit LED from another manufacturer. It was flickering badly so I ordered up a set of the 4000K from Diode Dynamics. Installation and fit was easy. These are plenty bright and work perfectly. I have bought other products from DD and the quality and support is always first class. (Posted on 6/6/16)

  3. What a difference Review by GLEN

    Huge improvement (Posted on 5/7/16)

  4. Love The LED Map LIghts Review by Thomas

    My 2016 Mustang GT came with the worst lighting bulbs for the map lights. It was hard to see in the car with the factory map lights. I purchased the SMD12 Boards. Now the lighting in the interior of my car is excellent. I'm very happy with my purchase. If anyone asks where I got then. I would be happy to tell them Diode Dynamics. I rate this product and Diode Dynamics five stars ***** (Posted on 4/6/16)

  5. Smd12 map lights Review by Katman

    Theses lights are nice and bright. I went with green and they really lit up the inside of my car. (Posted on 3/30/16)

  6. MAP LIGHTS Review by WHIP5OH

    This install was quick and easy.

    The Diode Dynamics bulbs went in quick and changed the whole look of my interior at nice, especially with a Dark interior.

    IMO this is should be the 1st mod to your interior .

    Don't wait , go for it.

  7. Amazing lights Review by Jacob

    These LEDs are great. Simple install and they easily bright up the interior of the car 10x as much as the stock lights. (Posted on 2/28/16)

  8. Five Stars All the Way Review by Wayne

    Quality stands out in the crowd and that is exactly what your product does, and just for the added touch hands down mastery of the lost art of customer service. Spot on installation tutorials too boot, way to go. Small Business is where its at forget the big box stores here is where I will spend my hard earned money! (Posted on 2/20/16)

  9. Great! Review by Stephen

    Man, some cheap LEDs did the trick for a while, but these are WAY better! The bulbs actually fit through the hole from the back unlike the others. These are actually white. the others were more blue than white. non afterglow after the lights are off. Way more solid feeling for not much more. These can be a bit pricey depending on the brightness, but it's well worth it! (Posted on 7/2/15)

  10. Excellent Review by Special5.0

    This is my 4th Mustang. I have purchased LED dome lights for every one off of Ebay. These here are about the same price, but the quality is a million times better. I don't have the afterglow when they have shut down and they worked first try. Gives off way more light the stock bulbs and look so much cleaner. You will be surprised by this subtle inexpensive change! (Posted on 5/4/15)
