Lightbulb 01-04 plug & play dome & map LED?

http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...d-festoon/238/
any body know if these will work in the 01-04 dome and map lights without resistors? it looks like they have some resistors built into them, but i don't know for sure, because there isn't much info on them at the super bright led page. if that is the case, they seem perfect.

i been reading tons of threads about the 01-04's having issues with leds in the dome and map lights tonight. i don't want to have to fuck with resistors not because i can't solder, but because don't currently own a soldering gun.

honestly no i dont think they will. someone chime in on here to give us some light on the bulbs that plug in and work without resistors!!! I just replaced my map and dome lights with the stock bulbs, I had some leds I had ordered off of ebay, but the resistors finally popped that I had soldered to them and the bulbs melted... so if I ever find some that doesnt require resistors I will gladly get more, so someone chime in with them working LEDS!!

also i wonder if there is a relay for the map and dome lights? i imagine the domes have one but i don't know for sure. anyways, today i changed the relay for my signals with an led relay and it corrected the hyper blink without any resistors. i may have to dig into that idea so this curse of the 01-04's may be lifted

EDIT: i checked today and i see a relay labeled dimmer. i'm not sure if it is for the dome light or for the gauges, maybe even headlights... anyone have some insight?

Those are the bulbs I have in my map and dome lights.

They DO NOT have resistors on them. I don't know where you might have saw that...

Anyways, they worked with the key on without resistors. To make them work with the key off: opening and closing the door, and the dimming function, you will need resistors. Honestly its not that hard to solder on resistors. It takes a minute or two and only costs a few bucks. I needed 2 1w 100ohm resisors the the dome lights, and 1 1w 100ohm resistor on each of the map lights.



Because the LEDs draw so much less wattage, I doubt you'll find any that work without resistors.

interested in this also.
the led dome i have now only works with the key on. although i found that with the key off and the door open, if i turn on one of the map lights, the led dome goes bright?? map lights are still normal bulbs

ya if you have at least one normal bulb in it will draw the correct power and light the LEDs. If you have all LEDs then only with the key on will they work, unless you get the resistors

funky, on my 03 double cab i replaced the dome light with one with out a resister and it still dims and works as normal

Looking at the pix on sbled, the back side of them show two things that look like resistors


And I get that it's cheap and easy to add resistors, but as I said above I don't own a soldering iron

An update to this since I am now in the same situation with my 2003. I have three of the DE3175 Festoon LEDs from Superbrightleds - two in the map lights and one in the dome. They are bright and white but do not work unless the ignition is on.

The large cylinders on the back of the SuperBrightLED festoons are capacitors not resistors. Capacitors smooth out the voltage going into the circuit that drives the LEDs. They have no effect on resolving the resistance issue that is the cause of the problem with the auto-dimming circuit that is present on the 2001-2004 Tacos.

I subscribed and will try to remember to update this thread with my solution that hopefully does not involve soldering or cutting any of the OEM wiring.

Short update to my post above. My dome light does fade out correctly, so the real problem is the circuit that is bypassed when the ignition is on (for the dome to work) or accessory (for the personal/map lights to work).

Not yet. I was on vacation and the truck has been sitting in the garage. I've got some other things I want to get done first before pulling out the multimeter and wiring diagrams like changing the front diff oil and getting a list of recovery gear together that I want to buy.

That price is for the pre 01s. I ordered a dome light from him that has a resister on it and it works perfectly. I had the same problem with my 04.
