Converting from incandescent to L.E.D's


Recommended Posts

I would like to change out my stock front DLR's, turn signal, and side marker lamps on both sides to L.E.D's. My only concern would be the voltage increase at highway speeds. As far as I can tell from the voltage gauge on the truck that reads around 14.7volts. Never had an original bulb burn out yet. Would there be a problem with the L.E.D's handling that much voltage on long highway trips? My truck is a 2011 Avalanche.

The voltage fluctuation should not matter much for the led's. And any LED replacement you would buy would likely be designed to run from 10-15 volts if they are for automotive use. The worst that will happen is they shine a little brighter.
