How To Secure Connection When Installing High Beam LED DRL Kit

When come to install the 9005 LED bulbs for high beam daytime running lights, most likely you will need a set of extra decoder or wiring/harness to ensure the LED bulbs function properly for the DRL mode with no flickering and no error message.

During plugging in the decoder or wiring, a very common assumption is the male and female connections should be connected the way the tab on the male connector get held by the clip on the Female connector.

Upgrade Honda Accord LED Daytime Running Lights without Break the Bank

Audi has revolutionized the appearance with their unique LED DRL lights on the front end of their vehicles. It is inspired many other manufacturers such as Hyundai, Lexus and specifically Honda. You might find it hard to believe that a Honda has adapted their front end with a LED DRL on their headlight but it is true. The latest generation 2013 and up Honda Accord has become one of the latest car manufacturers to join this movement started by Audi.

Over the years, Honda vehicles are often viewed as just a low class vehicle but they have revamped their whole line of vehicles to a much more modern look everyone is accustomed to seeing. The Honda Accord now has an option for the LED DRL but not all vehicles are equipped with the LED DRL. iJDMTOY’s latest retrofit components will allow you to convert those non-LED DRL equipped models to look exactly like OEM in a very inexpensive cost. The LED DRL is a fairly simple installation as it would be a replacement of the existing parking light bulbs with our new LED with all the necessary plugs and adapters. The kit not only fits sedan models but coupe trims as well.

Those who have the non-LED DRL equipped models have to deal with the awful, amber looking color when their vehicle is turned on but iJDMTOY’s Honda Accord LED DRL kit will change that in an instant. When you hear the word retrofit, you would automatically assume cutting and baking of your headlight. That is definitely not the case here with iJDMTOY. As mentioned previously, installation is simple but is highly advised to unbolt your headlight from your vehicle; therefore, you have more space to perform the installation as the housing is enclosed in a very tight area. You can ask yourself, “Should I spend an extra thousand dollars from OEM?” or “Should I go with the simple route with iJDMTOY?”

Not only the LED daytime running lights improve the safety alerting the pedestrians, but also make your car looks more stylish and more eyes catching on the road.

Nissan 350Z Bumper Reflector LED DRL 1

Since the 2003-2005 Nissan 350Z are not equipped with daytime running lights, we have a new LED daytime running light that would be a direct replacement on the front reflectors of the 350Z. Why keep the reflector when you can go with a LED daytime running light kit that bolts directly on. The level of difficulty of the installation will vary depending on automotive experience since it does involve some basic wiring knowledge. Some basic wiring includes locating a ground and a 12V power source to turn the LEDs on. In addition to basic wiring knowledge, you will need to be able to locate and remove the factory reflector off the front bumper.

Lexus CT200h 50W CREE H11 LED Fog Light Replacement

Ever since the release of our 50W CREE high power LED replacement bulbs, they have been used on a variety of cars that are looking for the most light output from an LED bulb. The extra components that have to be installed when getting HID or LED conversion kits makes them less desirable to some so they turn to replacement LED bulbs instead. These types of lights are not as bright as the conversion kits, but they still do a great job of producing an enormous amount of light from the bulb. This 50W CREE H11 LED bulb is the answer for this situation.

Lexus CT200h 50W CREE H11 LED Fog Light Bulbs 1

Each H11 CREE LED fog light bulb has ten individual LED diodes made by CREE; the chips used are the R4 XP-E series which are one of the brightest in the market today. There are eight on the side and two on the top underneath a magnifying optical lens projector which produces a lot of projection for visibility. The lights operate at 10W for a bright, yet reliable output capacity; these are rated to work up to 50W, but there will be heat issues associated with that. The unique design of the lights allow the light to project the light as well as provide a 360 degree output of shine which fills up the light housing very well.

Because these LED bulbs operate at 10W, they are ideal for usage as fog lights and daytime running lights. They are bright enough to be seen by other motorists, but not to the point where they can be used as primary driving lights. These particular 50W CREE H11 LED bulbs on this 2012 Lexus CT200H required no additional components for using it inside the fog lights, but using them inside daytime running lights may require decoders/resistors. European vehicles will also need the same type of resistor/decoder setup as well due to the error message system in place.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show Coverage

Every year, thousands of consumers, automotive industry retailers, and enthusiasts gather at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show. Companies from all over the world gather in Las Vegas for one memorable week which showcases the industry’s newest products, car builds, and more! We were not able to visit this year, but we’ve compiled a preview of what is at the show this year. The pictures in this coverage are sourced from various online sites such as Stancenation, Speedhunters, Autospies, Europeancarweb, and Mercurynews. SEMA draws all types of cars to the show; there are traditional muscle cars and hat rods, completely customized road vehicles, a modified FedEx delivery truck, full race cars, exotic cars and more so there is nearly an endless list of mechanical eye candy to stare at.

First, let us take a look at one of the most popular car of choice for builds this year; the Scion FR-S. Thanks to the large support from the aftermarket industry for this car, it is no doubt that this is a popular platform to build for enthusiasts. There are plenty of FR-S’s at the SEMA show this year.

Examples like the SpeedElement Scion FR-S from San Jose sporting the classic Rocket Bunny body kit, a unique duck bill rear lip and some aggressive MTechnica 2 piece wheels.

Aggressive wheels, body kit, and wing seem to be the trending style among the Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z crowd.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 3

The Rocket Bunny kit has been quite popular with the FR-S and BR-Z crowd and since they practically the same vehicle, you see the kit on both cars. This blue Vortech Supercharged Subaru BR-Z has on the Rocket Bunny version two kit which was just released not too long ago.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 4

It’s almost rare to see a FR-S or BR-Z without a Rocket Bunny kit these days so it’s a breath of fresh air to see something more different. Check out those fog light housings! We have some similar setups for the stock body vehicle as well.

However, I digress, the Rocket Bunny version two comes with LED daytime running lights arranged in a row which is quite unique. They go very well with the more aggressive styling of the newer kit.

Did we mention there are some pretty cool engine swaps as well at SEMA? The same FR-S above is rocking a single turbo 2JZ-GTE motor from a Toyota Supra instead of the traditional 4 cylinder 4U-GSE that came from the factory.

More 2JZ swaps? Sure why not; this time it’s on the newer 2014 Lexus IS350 Sport. The new Lexus IS models are also quite popular this year as well as the other newer models to hit showroom floors from all the manufacturers.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Auto Show 9

This VIP Auto Salon and Robert Evans collaboration of the 2014 Lexus IS350 F Sport is quite a looker, aggressive lines and a loud wheel color choice go very well together.

And of course, we have the not-so-aggressive builds such as this A’pexi Lexus IS. Subtle changes to the exterior go a long way.

There is also the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on display! The lines are more sharp and straight rather than contoured like the previous models, but it’s definitely not bad looking.

Since SEMA draws a whole variety of builds, it’s not surprising to see fully built race cars sitting at various vendor booths around the convention center. The Evasive Motorsports Scion FR-S is definitely no slouch and is competing in the Global Time Attack/Super Lap Battle event later this month at Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California.

The aerodynamics on race cars may seem strange and ugly to some, but function over form is preferred by these race teams. The FX Motorsports Acura NSX is a great example of this and is also competing in the Global Time Attack/Super Lap Battle.

Other vehicles like this Nissan GT-R from R-Rydes is sporting a set of LED lights in the front bumper; these seem like daytime running lights to us.

This is just a small sample of all the vehicles and things you would see at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV this year. We recommend to check out the websites that these pictures are from for a full and more detailed coverage.

Stay tuned for part 2 of the coverage which should be uploaded tomorrow.
