LED Map Lights

I have a '08 F-250 and thanks to my son I get to replace the whole map light assembly. Since I have it out and now and know how it is removed I would like to switch out the bulbs..

I have been reading that there were some issues about feedback and keeping the LED's some what lit, very dim but some power was feeding back. Has this been resolved?? Plus what should I be looking for??

Pics attached and TIA...

Be careful when putting those screws back in. My screw driver touch something in there and popped a fuse it took awhile to find it.

Yes, if you replace your bulbs with LEDs they will most likely stay dimly lit when off. They are not bright at all, but you can tell they have a small amount of current through them. They will not drain your battery due to a very low current draw. The light switches do not have a complete open circuit when in AUTO/DOOR. I have LEDs in my 250 as well as my 370Z and this occurs.

I have had a problem. Mine i can put the led s in but the led light on my ceiling mounted DVD player will stay on. I replace it with the regular bulb and it goes out! I can not figure it out....

Look up one post from yours...

The average LED only needs about 0.5 - 0.7vdc across it to start illuminating, far less than an incandescent bulb. This is the reason.

Anyone know where to buy this part? Or just the tan trim?

I just broke mine trying to get it off and the dealer wants $264...ummm no?

My wife works at a Ford dealership and her cost out the door was like 185 bones..

Don't feel bad I broke mine the first time, it would have been nice if they told me about the two clips you have to depress above the headliner to get the light to drop..

And for the record I just superglued mine back together..
