Any one installed Hikari LED H13 bulbs?


I researched LED upgrades for the convential halogens and decided on the Hikari H13 bulbs

Has anyone installed these? Were there any issues?

Look forward to your replies!

Finally installed the bulbs. They certainly put out much more light than the original bulbs.

That said, I am getting a headlight error flash up and I do notice some flickering.

Any pictures of the bulbs? How about some output pictures?

The bulb out error is because the LEDs draw less current, use less power than the halogen bulbs. Can be fixed by turning off the bulb check in the software.

Thanks for the reply and suggestion to disable the light check - I would like to know how to do this.


I didnt take pictures but did some research reading comparisons.

The Hikari are usually in the Top 2.

Have a read - it shows the bulbs, patterns, and talks a little of the pros and cons.
