Trunk lights are used in the trunk or cargo area to illuminate the space at night. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescant, 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.



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

SMD5: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains one 5050-size Epistar SMD chip, and the top is fitted one more, for full-coverage, non-directional output.

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 stage 1 or 2. We offer stage 3 and 4 for those who want to maximize brightness.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.


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.

Color Reference Banner


At Diode Dynamics, we rate the brightness of LEDs in "stages" so you can choose what fits you best. 

SMD2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMD5: Slightly higher brightness than 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.



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.

  1. great lighting Review by kyle

    Price is right, and color is bright. It all I could need in a led (Posted on 2/14/14)

  2. Order higher stage. Review by michael

    Atleast for me, (i drive 2013 scion frs) stage 2 was not bright enough and i can hardly see the light. I would suggest buying atleast stage 3 or 4. other than that i love the quality and color of the LED, just wish mine was brighter. (Posted on 1/30/14)

  3. bright Review by scott

    receive this stage 4 light today installed them and the look so bright great quality.. thanks DD (Posted on 1/30/14)

  4. Stage 2 white Review by Andy

    I know nothing about cars. Just getting into changing lighting on FRS. This was a simple install. Squeeze the white cover on the sides and pull. Replace bulb, put back on cover and voila. They are slightly brighter than the original bulbs. (Posted on 1/26/14)

  5. Works as expected Review by frodude247

    Very easy install with no hassle. It seemed like the Stage 3 LED was not as bright as the dome, but the plastic cover tends to mask a bit of the glow. Glad with my purchase. (Posted on 1/7/14)

  6. Great Accent Review by Brian

    I love the red lights in the trunk and the dome. They go great with the new FR-S acrylic pad in the center and the red trim interior.

    My only warning is go big or go home! Red is not as bright as OEM so heed their warning. If you don't want white, step up the brightness level or they will feel dim. (Posted on 11/11/13)

  7. Nice and Bright Review by Michael

    Picked up the stage 3 last week which was the pcb board, install was easy and extremely bright unfortunately the pcb board doesn't fit inside the truck light housing. I kinda wish I picked up the stage 2 so that if fit perfectly but alas. live and learn. (Posted on 9/11/13)

  8. Awesome Lights Stage II Review by Alamexico

    I ordered them for my Fr-s they look great. Installation was great and easy. Not too much justtt right. Thanks DD! (Posted on 7/10/13)

  9. Stage 3 looks great! Review by Christy

  11. Great! Review by Kevin

    i got stage 2 and it's bright enough in my trunk. (Posted on 3/17/13)

  12. Stage 4 is great Review by phanguy

    I ordered the Stage 4 trunk light and I'm just so happy with them. I got extras in my packaging to help ensure that the strip stays attached which I was very happy with. But the fact that there is bright, even lighting in my trunk is GREAT. Installation was super easy too. I'm very happy with what I got and I know I'll continue shopping here. (Posted on 2/6/13)

  13. Real Bright Review by Yoel

    I ordered a Stage 2 White.
    Cool little block of LED's with adhesive tape so you can attach to roof of trunk.
    I extended the wires so that the LED would reach center of the trunk. (Wish cables were longer so you dont have to cut and add more)
    But it looks great, very bright and clear. (Posted on 1/9/13)
