Car restorers know answers to the question,"How long does it take to replace an instrument panel light bulb?" range from "five minutes" to "I started taking apart the instrument panel two months ago, and I still haven't found that %[email protected]# bulb!" Hard to reach bulbs and any other bulbs that you only want to change once, can now be replaced with new LED bulbs. Here are just a few benefits of using an LED bulb for your automotive lighting needs:

  • LED bulbs do not have a filament wire like incandescent bulbs, making them better equipped to withstand vibration
  • LED bulbs last longer, use less power and give off less heat compared to incandescent bulbs
  • LED bulbs typically give off more light and even come in multiple color choices
  • LED bulbs have fewer part numbers, making them more universal
While LED bulbs do cost a lot more than incandescent bulbs, this is less scary when you consider that many incandescent bulbs start at less than $0.25 at RockAuto.com. It could be worth $10 or even $20 to avoid disassembling an instrument panel a second time.

Find all types of bulbs, with choice of brands, at RockAuto.com under the "Electrical-Bulb & Socket" category for your vehicle.

LED Bulbs from RockAuto.com are Great for Cars Too

Long life, cooler temperature, vibration resistance, choice of color are just some of the LED light bulb advantages discussed by Kathy Fisher of Performance TV and RockAuto.com's Tom Taylor.

I do not understand this post as the Focus st instrument panel already utilizes led's and they are hard soldered onto the bread board. I agree led's are worth the money vs incandescent but I do not understand trying to market them for the instrument panel in our cars.

Not bashing rockauto at all. Please clarify for me. :)

This is because RockAuto has an employee hired specifically for "social media." This person does not necessarily need to understand the products they are selling, nor how they apply to those they are advertising to. Instead, they are tasked with maximizing exposure for the company and generating clicks. This social media person is getting paid and/or evaluated by the number of posts they make and the number of visits that those posts generate. They will have posted this same message on all of the hundreds of forums they participate in, so therefore it needs to be sufficiently vague as to be able to be copied and pasted. Making posts that are specific to the forum they're posting on would take extra time and would cut into their quota being met.

This information is inaccurate. RockAuto is dedicated to providing relevant information to individuals with an interest in cars, and we strive to offer the lowest prices on auto parts to help car enthusiasts keep their cars on the road. The use of LED bulbs in instrument panels is an example, however, we also provide several other application examples, such as license plate lighting, turn signal lighting, etc. To see a complete list of all LED lighting applications for your vehicle, please check out the Electrical & Bulb category. Here is an example of all the LED lighting options for a 2013 Ford Focus: 2013 FORD FOCUS 2.0L L4 Electrical-Bulb & Socket Parts | RockAuto Thank you.
