    LED Lights

    I wish to replace my regular drl's and driving light bulbs with LED's on my Formula.

    Please don't copy and paste a link to a thread where I have to read a 110 pages to find out what I want.

    I purchased all of me LEDs from diode dynamics for my 02 Camaro. I also purchased this flasher https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00383ETS0...iglink20380-20

    All works good on my end.

    I put the Sylvania Zevo LED bulbs with new housings in my '00. No more heat, no more ugly orange bulb in a clear housing, put in a electronic flasher, no hyper flash. Very very very happy!

    Here is my video on this subject.


    The light bulbs,

    The flasher unit required,

    Trans Am housings are different than the Firebird ones, but Depo is the brand of mine. If you don't have fried or foggy ones, you are good to go!

    Best part, with a minor up-charge, the bulbs and flasher should be very readily available at your local parts store.

    Thanks for the video Darren, but does a Formula take the same bulb as a Trans Am?

    I'm sure the Hyper Flasher is worth considering but is it really needed. Will it hurt the car electronics system if I don't use it?

    It is needed if you wish for the turn signals to operate correctly. Diode Dynamics has their 4th of July sale going on right now for 20% off. One of their biggest sales.

    I went with XP80's for the front of my 02 Camaro DRL's.

    I am not sure if this link will help for the bulb sizes. I would still double check the sizes.

    As mentioned it wont flash correctly without it, but it will not cause any electronic harm.

    Our cars take the 3157A bulb ( A means Amber, R means Red, etc ) housings are just simply shaped differently. Happy modding! You will love the finished result.

    I saw that and made a sizable order. Ordered the SL1 LED low, high, and fog kit for my 06 Duramax. That discount made a $450.00 order down to $360.00 plus ship. Quite high still ( I put Auxbeam in my 04 1500, working good but a fog bulb failed already ) and it was half the cost.

    Very eager to see if the quality is much better than the cheaper Auxbeam kit. For the mo eyes I sure hope it is.

    That is a good order. The SL1 looks pretty good. Check out about 22 mins into this video for the light output.

    I had some extra time this week so I decided to install the LED, well I replaced the standard drl/turn signal bulb with a Ultinon LED bulb 3157A by Philips - it works on drl's only but not on the turn signal.

    Now what can I do?

    '02 Firebird Formula

    As you all know I wish to replace my DRL light blubs with LED's after having all the LED's ready to install, I was looking at the DRL light housing is kinda old and brittle. I tryed finding new ones on ebay, rockauto and FD Marketplace maybe I'm just not using the right words or something I can't find them. I need your help again, can you guys find them for me or should I go to a GM dealer?
