FUNCTION

Trunk lights are used in the trunk or cargo area to illuminate the space at night. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

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 wedge-style adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. This may need to be mounted to the exterior of your trunk light housing.

FlexLight: This is a 20-inch, low-profile LED strip, with 30 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with wedge-style adapter for direct installation. Mounts in your trunk area, flexible and waterproof, for maximum brightness.

Fitment. All bulbs use a quality inject-molded 194/168 T10 terminal, with a full-size base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 194 bulb. Just remove the old bulb, and plug in the new LED.

PLEASE NOTE: SMD12 Board is an LED board, which may mount to the exterior of your trunk light housing. FlexLight is an LED strip, which plugs into your factory trunk light socket, and mounts directly into your trunk area using included adhesive strips or velcro. If you would like a direct replacement bulb, we recommend SMD5 or SMD9. We offer SMD12 Board and FlexLight for those who want to maximize brightness.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.


COLOR

These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including White, Warm White, Blue, Red, Amber, and Green.

 We strongly recommend white or warm white for the best visibility.

BRIGHTNESS

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:

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

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.

 

QUALITY

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.

    very easy to swap and much improved over OEM incandescent bulbs. I got the brightest bulb in white I could get since I want to have the most light possible in this location.

  3. Unplug the Socket First! Review by Paul
    Price

    Quality

    LOL! Had to run out to AutoZone and get a new 10A fuse. I thought I would pop out the old bulb and pop the new one in but it turns out that blew the 10A On-demand lamp fuse inside (Fuse 1).

    I got the max brightness bulb, but would probably like a little more light, or (realistically) a much better bulb placement, so will probably look into whether I can get the light strip and mount it across the opening. Putting the trunk light inside the quarter panel where it gets covered by your luggage is ridiculous. (Posted on 6/10/16)

    For all the good things about Mustangs except the light bulbs from the factory. You can hardly see them when there on.

    I went with the Flex light upgrade. So I could get some additional lighting and look.

    The install took a little longer than a direct plug and play bulb. As I had to search for a location that was better suited for the positioning of the Flex light.

    I was really happy with the outcome.

    I will upload photos soon.

    Great quality lighting for your trunk. It bothers me car makers give the trunk lighting as an afterthought. With a greater punch in the darker areas in the trunk I wanted more from my Mustang's stock light. I tried Diode's kit with the trunk bulb. I felt it wasn't enough so I ordered the FlexLight. My photo shows the quality it gives. My photo should be slide 11 (with trunk net in shot) if and when it gets approved by the Diode guys. (Posted on 3/3/16)

  15. Keeps Blowing Fuse Review by RamblinMan
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I did all the LED upgrades in the cockpit; vanity, map, glove box, without issue but every time I try the trunk it blows a fuse. On my third fuse now and I've given up on the trunk. I disconnect the connection when installing the bulb, but it just keeps blowing the fuse once it powers on. Is there something I'm not doing correctly? It's a '16 GT so not sure if that makes a difference. (Posted on 10/30/15)

    Ford didn't do anybody any favors when they put the wimpy little trunk light in a corner of a black carpeted trunk. A candle in a cave would be brighter. But the Diode Dynamics bulb really overcomes the placement and carpet issue with flying colors. It's a gotta have upgrade! (Posted on 9/24/15)

  20. Flexlight for convertible Review by Keith
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    I have the convertible which has the stock trunk light on the left corner of the trunk which doesn't work well because #1. It isn't bright enough at all and #2. If you set something on the left side of the trunk, it blocks all of the light which leaves you unable to see anything else in the trunk.

    I got the Flexlight and I'm really impressed!! It's incredibly bright and now I have it on the top of the trunk where it should be. Solved all of my problems. I love it. (Posted on 9/12/15)

    Went with the cool white hp5 and couldn't be happier. Lights up the entire trunk now. Well worth the cost.

    When installing the light just insert a small screwdriver on the driver side to push back a tab and the light will fall out. Then disconnect the wire harness and then remove the bulb. Took me about a minute to swap the bulb. (Posted on 8/6/15)

  24. Get the HP5. Review by Travis
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    I got the HP5 bulb in cool white, I really like the color of the LED, it's great for a trunk (I'm not a fan of cool white as a light bulb in the home, but for the trunk, it really works great). I ordered HP3 bulbs as well to use as map lights, and tested them in the trunk, I don't think an HP3 is bright enough. The light from the HP5 was underwhelming at first, but I installed it in daylight- in the evening, or in a darker setting, you can see it's significantly better than the original bulb. I'd strongly recommend this upgrade in lighting, especially since the trunk lighting is so poor from the factory.

    As a map light, the HP3 is just right- anything more would actually be too bright in the cabin. (Posted on 7/23/15)

    I picked this up for my 2015 Mustang GT. Originally I had the blue HP3 bulb and it looked good but didn't provide as much light as I had hoped. I changes it out for a cool white bulb and now it looks fantastic and provides plenty of light. The HP3 is a good bulb if you want straight white lighting but if you want to add some flavor and use a color bulb I would suggest going with their HP5 bulbs to ensure you have a good amount of brightness. Either way still great products. (Posted on 12/10/14)
