We love LED's! We think they really accent the stylish interior of the MINI Cooper. They do take some special care and feeding, though. Please read this before installing LED bulbs.
- LED's are sensitive to over-voltage. Make sure your LED lamps are switched OFF when you start the car, or when you do any kind of jump-starting or external charging of the battery.
- LED's don't like heat. Do not expose them to the heat of incandescent bulbs, or any other high heat source.
- LED's have polarity. If your LED's don't light up the first time, reverse and re-install them.
- Some LED bulbs have small wires for contact points. You may have to reposition these bulbs in the factory housing to make electrical contact.
- Remove and replace one LED bulb at a time, and test each bulb before continuing to make diagnosing non-lighting bulbs easier.
- Handle LED bulbs by the base only. Try not to touch the LED itself; you can damage delicate electrical connections in the LED unit.
We sell a complete selection of LED interior kits for your MINI.
