Putco Interior LED Lights
Ever been in your truck somewhere at night and needed to read something, only to turn on the dome light and realize you still can’t see a thing? I discovered this oddity last weekend while on the side of a dark mountain road coming back from a friend’s house.

We attempted a shortcut, which (as usual) turned into a night long adventure of dark, narrow, winding roads on the backside of a mountain with no cell phone reception. We had a map, but had to use a flashlight to read it. The flashlight worked great…for about ten seconds. Then it dimmed down to a dull glow, perfectly matching the worthless dome lights above us. Needless to say I was more than annoyed and bought some Putco LED interior lights Monday morning.

Installation was a breeze. All it took was a Phillips head screw driver and two minutes of my time. Now the interior lights up nice with bright white light instead of a sad yellow glow. Definitely worth the money if you find yourself caught in the dark.

  1. What applications do they have? My Recons glow when they are supposed to be off.

  2. Hmm, I’ve never seen or heard of interior lights glowing…when the ignition is off there shouldn’t be any power to them. I had recons on my last truck, and actually liked them more. The Recon line hasn’t been loaded on to our website yet, but you can check out their site at www.gorecon.com. The application guide covers newer trucks and SUVs.

  3. most all dome lights always have power. thay come on by grounding the curant. for yours to have a glow, you might have a wire are the housing making contact. you might of not seen this with reg bulbs becouse thay need so much more power and a better ground.

  4. Sounds like you had a weak bulb to begin with,or ready to go on you. I really think you have a short. When you installed a NEW bulb ,you could actually see that you have a short. There is supposed to be no voltage what so~ever to that bulb until it is applied.

  5. Exactly.
