    Been looking around the forum but can't find the information on what LED bulbs to use. What I hear is that they need to be canbus led bulbs. I want to change the following bulbs for now:

    Front side lights
    Interior Roof light front and rear
    Number place lights

    If anyone has changed these and can let me know what I need I would appreciate it :Smile:

    Thanks

    If you can wait till the weekend, I will take pics of all my LEDs.

    I can't recall the sizes off hand. Some were CANBUS compatible, others were not. Doesnt make any difference. :Thumbup:

    The ones you changed is also for the 8th Generation Accord right? So for example these type of bulbs would do for the number plate:

    XENON WHITE 9 LED SIDELIGHT REPLACEMENT BULB ERROR FREE CANBUS T10 168 501 W5W | eBay

    I got my LEDs for both my 7th Generation and 8th Generation for this guys warden_jp2002 Stores Auto LED bulbs he has ebay shop White, Multiple LED series items in warden jp2002 store on eBay! and I have been using his LEDs for the last three years and have had one failure due to water ingress on the number plate light.

    I have also found the definitive bulb guide chart for all Honda which takes the guess work out , however you need to know your Honda chassis code to use it to its maximum.

    Go to this site Koito Japan use Google translate or use chrome, it will prompt the translation automatically. Select Honda then drill down to your model and it will give you all the types of bulb codes.

    Get the bulb type and cross reference of this guys LED shop or any shop you want to get the correct LED :Thumbup:

    Not seen Saj around for few days now,he must be busy.
    Have a look at this,this one is for 7th Generation but think same bulbs can be used for 8th Generation as well.

    I bought some WHITE LED SIDELIGHT BULBS CAPLESS W5W 501 but they do not fit snug into the holder, they fall out. Wrong bulbs obviously? I thought all the 501 led bulbs were the same

    Any updates guys, can we all share the vendors and sources where we buy the bulbs.

    We should get a definitive member approved LED list for all and take this long term guess work out.
