    Default rear interior light quick question

    after repairing my rear interior light after ripping the ribbon
    good old staples fixed it thanks to a thread on here

    so i have installed some led 501 in there all is good no error ect and all works as it should but i have noticed after locking they are both lit very very low hardly noticeable

    my question is will this cause to drain the battery

    i am guessing not due to so little power being drawn but if anyone in the know could answer that would be great

    cheers baz

    The power drain would so minute your battery would be fine.

    I thought that may be the case.

    Do they make much of a difference when used as interior lights?

    I think they do, a nice crisp whit light and they are brighter than standard filament lamps. I've replaced all my interior with LED's including glovebox and boot and I'm very happy with them. so much brighter

    No, I've got
    2 for the rear interior (but only paid 99p plus delivery) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1208807318...ht_3328wt_1185

    4 of these for front interior and map reading lights http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2808535602...84.m1497.l2649

    2 of these in the boot and one in the glovebox http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2906148294...ht_1894wt_1185

    2 of these for the rear number plates but only paid (£2.36 plus delivery) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_3763wt_1185

    Going to get some holders and put them in the footwells and under the bonnet.
