Lexus IS250 9005 LED Daytime Running Lights High Beam Kit

Car manufacturers have implemented daytime running lights onto their vehicles as an additional safety feature. One vehicle in particular is the second generation Lexus IS that comes equipped with daytime running lights that also share the same bulb size as the high beams. The 9005 amber halogen is not very appealing at all. How do you convert the amber to a white color? iJDMTOY’s Lexus IS250 9005 LED DRL kit for the Lexus IS will allow you to convert from amber to white.

The second generation Lexus IS has become a popular vehicle since it was introduced in 2006. The popularity has grown over the years because the aggressive sporty body style and comfort. This entry level sedan has won over the young age group. We have received a lot of interests regarding the daytime running lights which is why we have tested countless hours to get the LED daytime running light kit to work properly on the Lexus IS. I, myself, own a second generation Lexus IS as well. I was very skeptical initially on converting the high beam and daytime running lights from amber to white. The whole process sounded like a daunting task. After reviewing the iJDMTOY Lexus IS Lexus IS250 9005 LED DRL Kit, every component included was a simple plug and play which made the installation extremely simple. I mean who doesn’t want a plug and play installation? It just makes everyone’s life a lot easier.

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. Once you replaced the 55W factory halogen bulbs and turned on the car, you will notice a significant difference the LED bulbs gives appearance wise. Once the decoders are installed, you can confirm there is no flickering by standing afar in front of the vehicle.

Changing out the amber color in your daytime running light would definitely make your car stand out from the crowd. Many people are accustomed to seeing amber for daytime running lights. Also, many do not believe it is possible to change it out to a white color. The LED DRL kit is recommended to any car enthusiast or anyone who loves their vehicle. It is time to take initiate and get rid of that dull amber colored light!

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.

2013 Las Vegas SEMA Coverage: The LED Lights – Part Three

SEMA is not all about the car builds and new car releases, it’s also about consumer product demonstrations and new products for enthusiasts. We at iJDMTOY have a keen eye on lights and especially LED lights; we saw quite a bit of LED products on cars that we thought we’d share with everyone! We saw LED angel eyes on other cars besides BMW’s, LED work lights, and other similar lights we carry at our store; we’ll share these photos to give you an idea of what you can accomplish with similar lights that we carry.

To start off, there are the angel eyes. There were a lot of LED angel eye lights on cars at SEMA that originally did not have them. It just goes to show you how cool these lights look on almost any vehicle out there. We are far from the old CCFL halo ring days of yesteryear and have now upgraded to brighter and better LED alternatives.

Since not every headlight is the same size so there are multiple LED ring sizes available that can be purchased. For example, larger headlights like on this Chevrolet Camaro require rings that are much larger than say a Honda Civic would.

One more example would this BMW. But most BMWs already come with angel eyes though, right? Yes, while this is true, the factory angel eye design is poor and does not allow the entire ring to be lit up evenly in most cases. This owner decided to put actual LED rings on top of his existing halo rings to create a better look for his car.

We’ll step away from the passenger car style and jump right into the off-road scene for a bit to show the LED work lights we saw on many off-road car builds. While you’re out in the desert, mud, or harsh terrain, regular city lights may not be enough light for safety issues. This is where high-output LED work bars and lights come into play.

Since LED work lights consume such a low amount of electricity, but produce a high output they are ideal for off-road vehicles that have other accessories such as winches, radios, and other important electronic equipment.

While we passed by luxury car builds, we spotted a similar looking LED setup that we sell on this Lexus GS350 with a particularly aggressive front bumper. The LED lights are arranged in an “L-shaped” pattern that can be achieved with our very similar 10 piece Flexible LED DRL kit on our website. Many of these lights are custom type projects so it’s not a direct replacement of any kind.

Lexus GS350 with JDM Golden Yellow 9005 LED Daytime Lights

The factory daytime running light on most vehicles is a standard incandescent halogen bulb which produces a dull yellow color. For most people, they would like to get rid of this light and replace it with a whiter bulb so it matches with their other aftermarket lights such as the parking lights or headlights. However, some may opt to run a deeper and richer color yellow bulb such as these LED 9005 bulbs mimicking the early 2000s style of “JDM yellow”. Thankfully, we have a solution for both the white and yellow colors.

Lexus GS350 Golden Yellow 9005 LED DRL Bulbs 1

The Lexus GS350 of this generation requires LED canbus decoders to be installed along with the JDM Yellow 9005 LED bulbs to prevent issues such as flickering and error messages. This is included automatically when purchased as our DRL kit. Each DRL kit comes with two 68-SMD 9005 LED high beam daytime lights which are available in either Yellow, Blue, or White; in this article we are showing the Yellow color. The golden yellow color that these bulbs have is perfect for the automotive enthusiast who wants a deeper and richer color version of their factory bulbs and also a bit brighter during DRL mode. However, like all our LED DRL replacement bulbs, the high beam output is greatly reduced so it is recommended for DRL usage only.

50W 9005 CREE LED Daytime Running Light Bulbs on Lexus ES350

The 2007 and up Lexus ES350 uses 9005 sized bulbs for the daytime running lights and it is quite obvious to see the benefits to upgrade to LED lights. The factory incandescent halogen bulbs provide a dull, yellow color that is nothing special or noticeable. The 9005 LED bulbs that this ES350 has installed turn that around by providing a more crisp and stylish HID-like color that is sure to draw attention driving down the road.

9005 LED DRL 1

These LED bulbs use ten 5W high power CREE Q5 XP-E LED diodes per bulb and all operate together for a combined output of 10W. Since there are eight CREE LED diodes on the side, it provides the 360 degree shine to fill up the housing while the two on the top project light outwards thanks to the magnifying optical lens. The lights are also rated at 6000K so they are our classic Xenon White color so it would go great with our other Xenon White lights. Keep in mind that even though these high output bulbs are very bright, they are not intended to be used for high beam lights at night. Your high beams will still operate, but they will not provide you the same amount of light output as they once did; these are more for aesthetic purposes only.

9005 LED DRL 3

These lights would not work by themselves so they require our Lexus R4 setup which includes a pair of canbus decoders to prevent issues such as flickering and error messages. Using the 9005 CREE LED high beam and daytime running light bulbs by themselves may cause issues such as partial light up, flickering, and errors. The setup is completely plug and play so it requires no modification of the wiring and is very easy to install, but make sure you follow the instruction guide that comes with the kit so you install it properly.
