How To Tell If Your LED Bulb Can Fit Into a Housing

When it comes to core bulb sizes and their derivatives, it’s good to know that these bulbs can fit into the same housing. These bulbs include:

9005 –> H10 (9145, 9155, 9150, 9140)
H11 –> H8 H9
880 –> 886, 889, 892, 893, 890, 862, 881, 884, 885. 894, 898, 899

Bulbs to the left of the arrow will be able to fit into the housing of their respective core bulbs to the right. This demonstration is based on the 9005 bulb with the H10 core.

The 9005 bulb is a derivative of the core H10 bulb, meaning that bulbs sizes such as the 9005, 9145, 9155, 9150, 9140 can fit into the H10 housing. At first glance, it may appear that the H10 bulb has tabs that cannot fit into the stock housing. Actually, the bulb can still fit into the housing with a little bit of twisting and maneuvering.

The daytime running lights are a standard feature on the Lexus IS with the intention of providing additional safety on the road during the day. Since the Lexus IS shares the daytime running light bulb as the high beam, it cannot take a LED on its own. In daytime running light mode, the factory module operates the bulb at 6V approximately 30% power and LEDs require 12V to operate. The Lexus IS250 9005 LED DRL kit includes two 9005 LED bulbs and 2 DRL Decoders to prevent any flickering issues once installed. The LED bulbs connect to the decoders and the decoders connect to your factory harness. It truly is as easy as it sounds.

15w 9005 LED Daytime Running Lights on a 2012 Acura TL

For majority of the cars you see on the road, you will notice that during the day the daytime running lights are a dull and unattractive yellow color which blends into the other vehicles on the road that share the same light. Car enthusiasts like you and I want to obtain a look that stands out from the rest and create a unique look that will be sure to turn heads where ever you go. We are proud to reveal our 15w High Power 9005 LED replacement bulbs being used on a 2012 Acura TL’s daytime running lights/high beams. Unlike regular LED bulbs which require load resistors and special components to function without errors or flickering, these are installed by themselves and have no issues; the lights operate at 15w so they consume enough power draw to function without needing any special components.

The color of these LED lights are rated at around 4500-5000K so they are an almost perfect match to the factory installed HID/Xenon headlights that come with this vehicle. The high power Samsung LED chip produces a bright 1200 lumen output; a noticeable difference from the factory 800 lumen output during daytime running light mode. The lights are completely plug and play and require no modification to the factory parts, all it needs is a location to mount the fan/ballast/driver assembly just like mounting an HID ballast. A matching set can also be purchased for the fog lights so the same type of light can be used when you are driving at night with your low beam lights on to complete your vehicle’s lighting transformation!
