Illuminants: PNP LED - all informations

In the most cars bulbs in PNP sockets are installed. The easiest way to change to LED is to remove the old PNP and insert the PNP LED socket (with 12V resistor) - finished!

PNP sockets are available in small and large:
large: about 12mm diamter
small: about 8mm diamter

in a few times large PNP are installed: BMW, FORD, MERCEDES

Generally all high power LED are even superior to normal bulbs:
Luminance, color, lifetime, power consumption, producing (no) heat, etc...

Installation with diffusion foil for best result.

Illuminants: SMD LED - all informations

In all newer cars are small SMD chips installed: cockpit and all other equipment. If the illuminants must be changed, soldering acknowledge is necessary!

in a few times, small SMD LED are installed: FIAT Stilo, Car and Cell phones, etc...

SMD LED are the best possibility:
light angle, illuminating power, color intensity, lifetime, power consumption, producing (no) heat, etc...

Illuminaton by using SMD LED is absolutely perfect.

If SMD LED are in use, pointers of older cars can be lighted in different colors.

Dials / Plates - illumination turquoise and not blue?

If original bulbs are in use, the illumination is often a little bit turquoise.
Note: bulbs with yellow-white light + blue color filter = turquoise

Blue LED con: red lighted parts and red pointers aren't available

White LED pro: Red parts and pointers are available, with different color filters can every color be filtered: blue, red, white, green, etc...
White LED con: Deepblue lighting isn't possible

Dials compare - with or without shining through technic

Dials with s.t.t. cannot be compared with some without s.t.t.!
If you got a car with lighting from behind, you should always use the first one.
In night you will be satisfied with the solution.
