Diode Dynamics LED Conversion Kits include all of the LED bulbs you need to replace the incandescent bulbs in your vehicle, for interior and license locations. It has been tested in your specific vehicle, for perfect fitment, and no guesswork! No modification is required for installation, you simply replace the bulbs!
By using the ordering options on this page, you can create your own mix-and-match kit by making the proper selections on each stage, or choose one whole kit that you prefer. Simply change the quantity to "0" for any bulbs that you do not wish to purchase.
The product pictures are professionally taken, at the same camera settings, in order to provide an accurate idea of what the bulbs will look like, in terms of brightness compared to the factory bulbs.
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.
Choose a design with a higher lumen output to increase the brightness.
All brightness levels are for general reference only, and apply only to the use of white LEDs. Please see the note below regarding the use of colored LEDs.
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 SMF2 or SMF6. We offer SMD12 Board and FlexLight for those who want to maximize brightness.
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.
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.
LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means 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.
Quality LEDs at a great price! Review by MT
Price Value Quality
Received the full set in less than a week and everything fit perfectly and looks great (much brighter too) with the stage 2 kit for my '11 Sonata! opted for the flexlight in the trunk and I HIGHLY recommend it! You can tuck it up under the lip right near the original bulb location and it stays attached very well while lighting the whole trunk up all while staying perfectly hidden!
Only issue I had may just be a switch in manufacture of the vehicle but my glove box LED was a festoon style rather than the plug in type... However, Diode was super helpful and sent the festoon type out within a couple of days and now I'm fully lit with stage 2 cool white LEDs and loving it.
This should be one of the first upgrades you make to your vehicle for sure and Diode is a great help through the whole ordering process!
Will be buying more LEDs as I need them from Diode for all my needs! (Posted on 9/21/14)

I bought the map, dome, trunk, glove box, license plate and door LEDS. Makes a huge difference compared to the cheap ones Ive bought off of Ebay. I got the stage 3 kit amazing. Was very easy to install also came with a install tool which made it much easier to install. I also bought a hyundai genesis and my mom just got the sante fe. WE WILL be ordering HIDS and LEDS for both cars.
