Upgrading your interior lights to LED helps bring the interior out of the stone age. We now have a wide variety of options to help convert your interior lights to LED. Unfortunately we have not completed our LED packages for vehicles as yet so we have set up this guide to help you through the process. As always if you find yourself getting stuck at any point feel free to call us Monday to Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm on (03) 9369 8845.

Note that we will have a large range of pre-selectable kits available for some vehicles in the future. 

INTERIOR LIGHTS

We are currently in the process with creating LED conversion kits specific to a wide range of makes and models but this does require a lot of research into all the individual globes fitted around the inside of each vehicle. In the mean time we are adding all the information required to convert to LED in our current available range which will expand as we come across different models requiring different globes, BA9s for example which is also a common parker globe.

Listed below are the current LED upgrades available at this stage,

LED GLOBE TYPES:

T10 WEDGE

Starting off with most commonly found across the board is the T10. Used in most lighting throughout the interior of your car from dome/map globes to trunk and courtesy lights. Currently available in 3 sizes dependent on application the T10 comes in 33mm, 28mm and 24mm. All have a standard 8.8mm width at the plug end as the fitting is standard.

When replacing these types of globe our STEDI T10s are compatible with all T10 Wedge sockets you will just need to measure the height for the intended fitting via the previous globe. It is important to get the right size globe to replace your old ones as the wrong size may not fit into the existing socket and may have performance issues.

T5 GLOBE

Found more commonly used for only interior use is the T5 (2721) globe. The type of applications include gauge dashboard, instrumental plate, interior lighting and is some cases licence plate lights.

FESTOON GLOBE

This style of globe is very similar to its usage as the T10 globe. Again available in 3 sizes, 31mm, 36mm and 42mm. The system in which Festoon globes is via 2 prongs each end in which the globe slots into. The Festoon globes are similar to the T10 application but dependent on the fitting style that your vehicle uses. 

These globes are measured end to end but are compatible within 2mm longer or shorter due to the style in which they are fitted to the socket.

T20 WEDGE

The T20 isn't very common when it comes to interior lighting but some specific models are fitted up with T20's. If these style of globes are run in your vehicle they are mostly found in the dome light used and the 2 map lights. T20 bulbs also have 2 different types, 1 being single filament (7440) and the other being dual filament (7443). The difference between is that the single filament is used for applications with only a single illumination option i.e no dimmer. The dual filament is cross compatible with both 7440 & 7443 fittings. The 7443 can be used on aplications such as DRLs and brake lights where as the 7440 is not.

BAYONET

The bayonet type globes run 2 most common sizes that are found in vehicle parker lights and interior, BA9s & BA15s. These type of globes also run 2 different connector pin patterns. What we mean by this is the 2 little tabs either side of the base that the light connects to the socket by running either parrallel or on an offset.
