[QUOTE=Norton;3943647]x2. I keep hoping someone will come up with a fix for this issue, so we (1st Gen owners) can enjoy LED brightness from our internal lights.[/QUOTE
me too! i kept the led map lights but put back the reg. bulb in the dome

So you guys are saying if I go with an LED the only way it will work is if the key is in the ignition and turned on?

The LEDS will work if your key is on atleast acc. Otherwise it will just flicker. Myself, i have all led's in my 1st gen.

LED Resistor Theory (Ohm's Law)

Late to the party I'm sure - haven't found a DIY fix for this in any forums, only to purchase from other members. Link to a electronics forum discussion around this looks like an easy DIY mod if you buy some resistors. Pasted the calculation for different V drops and mA applications, this way each unique volt drop can get the correct resistor.

http://electronics.stackexchange.com...sistors-in-led

With the Battery - resistor LED circuit example
The LED has a certain defined voltage drop at a chosen current.
- To be specific lets say that at 20 mA the LED drops exactly 3.00 Volt. *typical of some modern LEDs.
- If we wish to run the LED at 20 mA we MUST arrange for it to drop 3V *not more and not less.
If we wish to use 9V to supply to operate the LED we MUST "get rid of" 9V (supplied power) - 3V (drop) = 6V difference somehow.
- - - - >The resistor does this.

To drop 6V at 20 mA use the Ohm's Law calculation. Resistance (R) = Power/Voltage(V) / Amperes (I). So R=V/I = 6V / 0.02A = 300 ohms.
In this example a 9V battery + a resistor capable of 300ohms + an LED will operate at 20 mA. The resistor can be placed before or after the LED. The current is dropped across it in either location.
