Do you doubt if you can really put LED lights inside the car? Well, let us tell you that we have good news: yes, you can definitely put LED lights in the car and in this post we will teach you how to do it.
Adding LED lighting to the interior of a car will change its look and create a unique atmosphere. Furthermore, there are several options for LED lights that you can install yourself without the need for complicated modifications.

Option 1: Self-adhesive RGB LED lights

The first option to illuminate the interior of your car What we bring you is to do it through self-adhesive RGB LED lights. These lights come in small square or circular panels that can be stuck with double-sided tape to virtually any smooth vehicle surface.

The advantages of these lights are several. First of all, They do not require wiring or complex installationThey simply stick where you want them. Additionally, they come with a remote control that allows you to switch between a wide range of RGB colors, adjust the brightness, and program different lighting modes, such as smooth color changes or flashing.

Recommended areas to place these lights include the glove compartments, the foot area (both the driver and the passenger), under the front seats and, if you wish, even in the back to illuminate the rear seats.

If you are looking for a more integrated and permanent solution, you can choose to install LED ambient lights that turn on in conjunction with the vehicle's interior lights. This option requires a little more work, but the final result is quite professional and discreet.

To install this type of lights, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the interior panels, such as door coverings, panels under the steering wheel, etc., to be able to pass the cables.
  2. Once you have access, you must pull wires from power supply (probably connecting them to the wires that power the original interior lights) to the points where you want to place the new LED lights.
  3. In the places where you pulled the cables, install the LED light strips or points, fixing them securely.

We recommend using soft white or amber LED lights for pleasant ambient lighting.
Some ideal areas to place these lights are door handles, glove boxes, under seats front, around the perimeter of the doors and even on the pedals.

Additional tips

  • Clean surfaces well before sticking the self-adhesive lights for better adhesion.
  • If you opt for wired installation, consider using quick connectors to facilitate future modifications or removals.
  • Avoid lights that are too bright that could distract the driver.
  • Test the location of the lights before gluing or installing them permanently.
  • Check out video tutorials or detailed guides for wired installation if you have no prior experience.
