FUNCTION

Glove box bulbs are used to light the glove box area, to locate items in this compartment 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 space with a brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

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.

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.

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:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs!

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.

    *one helpful installation tip* if you open the secondary storage for the owner's manual, the bulb is much easier to reach. I don't remember seeing that tip in the installation video online.

    I bought the red bulb for my red Mustang. the red looks awesome, and it is still plenty bright.

    I also bought a white bulb for my daughter's Mustang (Posted on 9/30/16)

    This was the final replacement to my interior lighting in my Ford Mustang. I don't understand why cars don't come with these awesome bulbs direct from the factory. The new led light gives off a modern bright emersive glow really illuminating my glove compartment so that I can see all of my items. It may not seem that important but in the event a police officer pulls me over my glove compartment will be fully lit so there is no confusion as to what is inside of it, thanks Diode Dynamics (Posted on 5/27/16)

    I really like the look of white light in my glove compartment. The original bulb from the factory was yellow and very low light output. All though I do have to say this was a hard bulb to replace. I thought I'd never get it in the right way lol. But all in all I'm very happy with my purchase and the look of the LED bulb in my glove compartment (Posted on 4/23/16)

    While I don't use the glove box much, it is nice to see a cleaner look in there than the yellowish OEM bulb glow.

    The install took me a minute to get it right, but I was able to get it installed in about 3 minutes. You will not be disappointed.

  8. Challenging Review by Ed
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    This was the most difficult bulb I've ever replaced. After twisting into more positions than a contortionist, by accident I found that the entire glove box light switch assembly just pops out, making the bulb infinitely easier to remove and replace. I strongly recommend that anybody replacing this bulb should disconnect fuse #1 in the passenger fuse box first. It's a 10 amp mini-micro fuse, and they're not the easiest things to find. Do yourself a favor and pull this fuse first.

    The bulb is incredibly bright (like ALL the great Diode Dynamics products I've bought), and makes a tremendous difference in the glove box. you'll be glad you went through the hassle! (Posted on 9/24/15)

  9. HP5 Review by Keith

    I got the HP5 in Cool White and it makes the glove box much brighter than stock! Very happy with it.

    ***However I wish there was a warning on the installation!!
    For some reason when I was putting in the bulb it blew a fuse in my Mustang. It's not Diode Dynamics fault, but I'm not the only one that experienced this problem. I replaced the small 10 amp fuse and all is well now. I recommend that you pull the small fuse #1 before installing bulb and then put it back in when you are finished. (Posted on 9/12/15)

    I bought the HP3 bulb and it is very bright and matches the new map lights I bought at the same time. It was a bit of a pain to get the old bulb out and this one in. The video from diode dynamics was a great help. Be careful when you remove the old bulb. I had "a friend" who accidentally shorted out the connection with a screw driver. I, no wait, he had to find and buy a really tiny 10 amp fuse at the local parts house. (Posted on 1/14/15)
