Today I just received the LED headlights which I bought from Amazon, which costs 52 dollars, I will go to replace my OEM halogen bulbs with a headlight that came on my 2015 Silverado.
The first thing I noticed is these things come in a black box. We open it up release fit elite club and you’ve got your starter guide their product manual, there’s no wiring harnesses or there’s nothing to wire to your battery.
A lot of these h7 LED headlight bulbs are plug-and-play, you plug it, just pop in and hookup. They are a total of 72 watts and a total of 7600 lumens they’re nice and bright and they last 30,000 hours and that’s the upside of having LED bulbs is your halogen bulbs may last a thousand at the most. The thing is about it is heat kills your bulbs these have fans built into them, there’s a fan actually built into each one to keep them cool and that’s probably why they last so long. So let’s go ahead and find out how easy these things are to install and pop them on.
It goes a little cap that covers the headlight, turn that counterclockwise, you pop it off then inside, there you’ve got your bulb and disconnect it. First just the connection in the bottom of it you turn it counterclockwise, pull it out. Now I am going to install the new one the last fit LED bulb and it should just pop in then you just plug in your connection back up. And cover the dust cap back over the top.
Now that the LEDs are installed let’s go ahead and check them out what they look like how well they work and how they compare to the old ones. They’re that cool white color, they’re not annoying blue as you can see the bright. They’ve got a great pattern to them in thirty thousand hours of life. But with a lot of LEDs you got to do a lot of extra work, you’ve got a wiring harness you got the burner boxes you’ve got a wire up to your batteries and sometimes this plug-and-play hook them right in.
