This is my first post and I am happy to be here. 'Read many other threads on this forum and I know I'm in good company with ya'll.
I searched, and scoured the web (and this forum), and could not find a thread or post that throughly covered the topic of Original Equiptment lighting.
Maybe there is a Chilton's or a Haynes Book that covers this?
This question popped into my thoughts as I began shopping for an overhead light bar.
Of course, lumen, beam flood angle, and beam throw distance were the first specs I poured over, but then I thought about Kº (light temperature in Kelvin degree). It might be cool if this new light added to the truck would match the existing. (I'm pretty happy with the factory lighting choices on my SLE).
So I pulled the headlight bulb to find a PHILLIPS hHIR2 LL 55W 9012 LL, Made in Germany. (See photos).
When I compare the various replacement bulbs offered by Autozone, the replacements can range from 3000, 3200, 4100, to 4200º Kelvin.
This thread might be helpful to others working on interior lighting, or other lighting as well.
Anyone out there have professional photography equipment that can meter, or sense color temperature? Are different trucks different temps?
Thanks for any info involving measurements, photos, specs, or thoughts that might be helpful to me or to US as a community of owners and technicians. Hopefully this thread could help others too. Thank you.
So I replaced my license plate lights, courtesy lights, and dome lights all with new led lights. The dome and map lights turn on when I unlock/lock the truck and when I open the doors, but I am not able to turn them on with the manual button. Please help!
My front dome lights have stopped coming on automatically with the doors. Rear domes work ok. Fronts can be controlled manually with the button on overhead console. The "dome override" switch has no effect. I figured it must be the override, and was able to get a new switch module for $39 and replaced it in about two minutes. No fix. What am I missing? Separate fuses for the auto and manual circuits? Can't believe both door switches failed at the same time. Thanks for any ideas.
