Premium Interior LED Replacements

FAQs

How do I find and order lights for my car?

This site offers three different and easy ways to shop for LED lights:

1) Shop by Manufacturer
2) Bulb Shape
3) Part Number

What happens if I do not know what size light my car uses?

The following site has the bulb sizes for the majority of cars: Sylvania Replacement Guide

In the event that you cannot find your car on the website - do not panic. Matching your stock interior bulbs to an LED replacement is a simple task.

  • Carefully pop off the dome light covers and examine the length and shape of the stock bulb.
  • There are only six different types of bulb shapes, so matching your bulb to the pictures on 'Shop By Bulb Shape' is very easy.

If you are continuing to have issues, we will be happy to help. Email us at support@tunerdomes.com with the make / model of your car and a picture of the lights you wish to replace next to a ruler so we can easily determine the size.

Please note: Emailing us the OEM part #'s will not help us. The Bulb Shape and Size is what matters.

What are the advantages of switching to a TunerDomes LED Dome Light?

Light Emitting Diodes (L.E.D.s) are continuing to replace traditional filament bulbs in more and more applications including televisions, home appliances, and traffic lights. Some of the many advantages of LED lights over Incandescent bulbs are:

  • Extended service life - The life of an LED light averages at 10,000 hours making LED lights extremely reliable and practical.
  • Drastically reduced power consumption - While putting out the same amount of usable light, LED lights consume about 50% LESS power than halogen bulbs.
  • Produce virtually NO HEAT - An LED light uses so little power that most of the time the bulb will not even feel warm to the touch, even after hours of use, making LED lights ideal for small spaces.
  • Unaffected by vibration - Unlike halogen bulbs, LED lights do not have filaments or tiny parts that can come loose during vibrations; this makes LED lights not only more durable, but also much more dependable.

How do I install my new TunerDomes LED Light?

Installation is very simple:

  1. Replace only one bulb at a time if you have ordered one of our premium kits.
  2. Carefully pop off your dome/courtesy light plastic cover
  3. Pop/Pull out your old dome light (be careful, it may be hot)
  4. Carefully insert your new TUNERDOMES™ LED light (For your safety, DO NOT use a screw driver or any other metal tool around live contacts in your dome housing!)
  5. If the LED Bulb does not light up, turn it around the other way (reverse the polarity)

Will my interior lights still dim if I switch to LED?

Do your interior lights dim after you get in and start the car, or after you lock the car and walk away? Upgrading your interior lights to LED will still allow your lights to dim. LEDs will dim at a slightly faster rate than your stock filament bulbs but you will still be able to enjoy the dimming effect.

I have installed the LED lights, but they are not turning on.

If your new LED light is not lighting up, below are a few troubleshooting tips that solve 99.9% of the reported problems:

  1. If applicable, check to make sure your dome switch is turned on
  2. Turn the LED around the other way (reverse the polarity)
  3. Make sure the connectors (wires) are touching the contacts that fight tightly
  4. If you used a screwdriver or something metal to pop out the factory bulb, you make have blown a fuse. Check your fuse box with the ignition turned off. Please note: Another way to test the fuse would be to put the old bulb back in the socket to make sure the circuit still has current running through it.
  5. If you have tried all of these steps and you still cannot get your new bulb to work - email us at support@tunerdomes.com

My car is turned off, but my new TunerDomes LED is still lit.

A major advantage of having your TUNERDOMES LED light is that it needs a very small amount of current to remain lit; some cars actually will have residual current running through the circuits even after you shutoff the car. This is not an issue with the bulb, nor will the bulb train your battery. The LED will eventually drain the current left in the circuit and shut off.

If the LED remains lit, it may mean your car is continuing to send current through that circuit, which should be addressed as this decreases the life of the car's battery.

When my ignition is off, my lights sometime flicker.

If you are sitting in your car with the ignition off and want the lighting to work you just need to wake up your car's control module. You can do this by inserting the key into the ignition or by moving the switch on your overhead dome light to the ON position.

What is the return and exchange policy for TunerDomes?

If you are mailing an item back to us it must be within the allotted 30 day return period for a valid exchange. In the rare event where you’ve received a defective product, ship the item back per the instructions below.

1) In your return package - Please include a note with your order number, contact information and a brief explanation stating what you would like in exchange/or explaining why you are requesting a refund.

  • Simultaneously, go to our website and order the correct product.
  • We will credit your card or PayPal account once the return is received and your new, correct product(s) will have already been shipped.

What does Kelvin temperature mean?

In some cases, you will notice our LED specs will mention the color temperature in "#K" or “Kelvins”. The Kelvin color temperature scale is shown below.

LED interior car lights, LED license plate light

Warmer Whites are in the 2500K - 4000K range (Standard bulbs)
Cool White, or as we like to call it, "HyperWhite" is in the 5000K - 8000K range.

What colors can I get?

Most of our high-end LED products are available in Hyper White, Blue and Red. On each product page, you can select which color you prefer before adding it to your cart. However, for license plate lights, the only legal color in the United States is Hyper White, hence why there are no other options available.

How can I get a mixed color LED kit or customize a special LED package?

We are happy to accept custom orders! Please email us at support@tunerdomes.com and we will assist you in placing your customized TunerDomes order.

I installed the LED bulbs for my license plate, but the bulb flashes or there is an error showing on the dashboard.

For some newer European vehicles such as BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Volkswagen, they all have an intelligent and sensitive on-board computer. This will notice the addition of LED bulbs because LED bulbs have a much lower wattage compared to stock tungsten bulbs. To eliminate the flash problem and bypass the on-board computer error showing up on the dashboard, you will need to add resistors or purchase our LED bulbs with resistors built in to prevent this issue. However, most of the time, the bulbs will perform perfectly.
