    So i purchased some white LED lights to put in my Suburban's interior.

    Got 2 to replace the Map Lights #161/211's.

    Got 3 to replace the Dome Lights - Festoon style Bright white 42mm.

    None of them work when installed?

    Can anyone provide some guidance?

    The only thing I can think is the resistors, on some of the cheaper LED's you have to solder some diodes in line with the LED to keep it from burning up from the irregular voltage. Other than that I would have no idea where to start. Another thing you might want to try is reversing the way you have the LED plugged in the socket, because sometimes flipping them 180 degrees makes all the difference.

    Did you try them both ways? Mine wouldn't work either so removed them turned 180 degrees and boom! They worked.

    Just installed LED's on a 08 TBSS

    Interior Domes/Maps #168 they had to be placed into the right direction
    Reverse Lights #3156 also had to be placed in correctly
    License Plate lights #168 " "

    Love the look. I am going to change all mine out next month. It was a clean look with the black leather interior.

    Yea LEDs are an addiction. The only bulbs that aren't LED on my truck are the headlight bulbs. Here is a quick pic of my interior.
