Cab LED lights stopped working.

I got a pair of cab LED lights for the map lights and dome light from a friend because they didn't work properly in his Taco. Hooked then in a few days ago and all was good. That night after work i noticed the dome light didn't come on with the door open. I switched it on and it came on but not in the door position. Fast forward to the next day the map lights stopped working. Weird. They are brand new. Anybody have any similar problems and know of a work around? Thanks guys!

I had similar problems with map lights. They were fine for a few days, then they kept blowing the fuse. The only solution I had was to buy a different pair from another vendor (superbrightleds.com) These have been fine for 2 weeks now.

I also found this thread. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st...light-mod.html

I've got a 2012 and my dome light fuse was a 7.5A fuse, in the engine compartment fuse box.

I'm guessing that those map lights share the same fuse... Cause they don't work but maybe 7.5 isn't big enough. Have you already tried a bigger fuse?

Yes, I put a 10A in and it blew as well. For whatever reason it was shorting it. There's no reason those LEDs should be drawing more than the incandescent bulbs that were in there.
