In my overhead lights I used 4 high power LEDs. 500mW (150mA at 3.4 volts). theyre 55 degree 13 lumens. They are more directional than the lightbulbs but theyre MUCH brighter, and pure white instead of the yellow of incandescents. When they are on at night it is hard to see the road
Ive also got 30 white LEDs in my glove box to match the overheads.
heres how to read the resistors
Under the dash I have 30 on each side. They have a wider beam pattern than the door lights so theyre better under the dash. I made mine with a long circuit board with the elds and resistors and used GOOP to attach it to a piece of plastic channel. Then 2 screws to hold it under the dash. How did you put the leds in the doors? I took each light socket out and cut and shaved to make the board fit.
You can easily use one resistor for multiple leds. You can put leds in series and parallel, and with the proper resistor you can do whatever you want. Just make sure that the resistor has a high enough wattage rating.
WATTS = VOLTAGE X CURRENT
One thing that you may notice is that LEDs flicker due to the alternator. If this bothers you too much you can use a capacitor to smooth it out.
