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.

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. High Quality Map Lights Review by Tanner

    I got the blue HP5 Map lights and am more than pleased with the light output. Much brighter than the stock map lights and I personally love the blue at night. Shipping was very quick and I would definitely recommend these lights to anyone looking for Map lights with great brightness and overall good quality bulbs! (Posted on 7/17/17)

  2. Looks good! Review by zach4v

    Had red leds previously that went out from another brand and these are noticeably higher quality! (Posted on 7/4/17)

  3. Change your OEM Map bulbs to LED! Review by Glenn D.

    When your Mustang has the MyColor system LED instrument gauge panel, LED sill plate, and other factory OEM interior LED bulbs the first thing after scratching your head as to why the map lights are incandescent will be to get them changed out to LED. The difference is quite literally night and day for reading or looking for anything in the interior. The OEM map bulbs are like trying to read or see by candlelight or kerosene lamp.

    Change out your OEM Map light bulbs to LED ASAP! That is unless you like the contrast in your car interior of a stock LED instrument panel against stock OEM Map Lights. If you make this change you won't be able to thank yourself quick enough after changing them out. The difference is evident even in daylight hours. I bought the highest rated lumen bulbs to make the change and can't be more pleased. (Posted on 5/8/17)

  4. What a difference! Review by Grabbar

    Bought the map lights and the trunk light. What a difference it makes. Gives a more high end look by getting rid of the factory yellow lights. Much brighter as well. One of the cheapest mods you can do for your Pony. (Posted on 11/12/16)

  5. Love These Map Lights Review by Rob Peet

    I first bought the clear white lights and decided to try the blue ones. They give a great tint to the intertior. My dash lighting is changeable on my Mustang so I coordinate the blue map lights with the blue dash lighting. I will order the red colored bulbs soon. And yes, you might wish to purchase the 92 lumen lights. They cost extra but well worth it. (Posted on 9/30/16)

  6. Wow! Review by Map lights

    Switching to the LEDS makes a big difference. The pics don't do the quality of the product any justice. Take my word for it. It makes the car look totally different. No more dull yellowish lights! (Posted on 4/4/16)

  7. Very bright, clean white map lights! Review by JR

    Overall, these 6K HP3 map lights clean up the interior of the Mustang very nice. They are a perfect color of white and simply put look amazing! I waited too long to put them in and should have purchased them day one when I purchased my Mustang. Don't hesitate to order them and for me, the brightness of the HP3s were perfect and have a look at the pictures I shared. I highly recommend these and you won't be disappointed! (Posted on 1/10/16)

  8. Fantastic Review by Korey

    I purchased the LED upgrade Kit with the Interior map light, license plate light, as well as the trunk light at the same time. I decided to give it a shot because of the sample images on the website and due to the fact that I was tired of those disgusting stock halogen bulbs. Shipping was fast. The install was a breeze, just pop out the old halogen bulbs and put in the new LED bulbs with a little pressure. They use less power and emit a cool white light that is much brighter than stock bulbs in my opinion. For the Map Lights I chose the 6000k HP3 LED's which are fantastic and really light up the cabin and make finding something very easy, they are bright but not overwhelming. For the License Plate Lights I went with the 6000k SMF2 LED's which are a little brighter than stock but are way more crisp and have better light output. Lastly, for the Trunk Light I went with the 6000k SMF4 to really illuminate the trunk at night when I have luggage or other things in the back, I must say it is a vast improvement over the stock bulbs, super bright, crisp, and clean. I would definitely recommend all these LED upgrades, they really improve the look of the car at night, and really gives your car a high end feel. Thanks Diode Dynamics!! Just don't forget us older model guys! (Posted on 12/14/15)

  9. Great Review by Jason

    I got these map lights last (first license plates, then trunk) but I'm glad I got them! I was pleased with the quality of the license plate and trunk LED's that I knew I had to keep going with Diode Dynamics! Got the stage 2 interior map lights and wow, what a difference. Went from a dingy ugly dim yellow color to a super crisp, bright white LED! I went with Stage 2 which I think is significantly brighter than stock, but not too bright. It's good to be able to find something in the car at night with the map lights now! Either way, I'd definitely recommend these! (Posted on 7/19/15)
