Thread: Car tail light red led, do you know the name of it.?

  1. #1

    Default Car tail light red led, do you know the name of it.?

    I have this car tail light red led which is nice bright and can some one tell me the name of it, as I would like to buy some of them but can't find them.
    I did measure the led and it's something like 310x280mm, more or less.
    This is the closest I can make a picture of the led.

    I don't come on here often, but I LOVE many of the factory LED taillights that have come out over the years. My absolute favourite that I would love to get my hands on are the 00-03 Cadillac Deville's. Next would be the 08-12 Chevy Malibu, then the 08-09 Ford Taurus X, both of which look like a single "bulb" compared to the Deville.

    Anyway, if it's still in a housing (or at least the board) can you share a pic of the whole thing? Curious what you want to do with them. They won't offer any advice here on modifying, unless something's changed. Thanks!

    I'm trying to make a custom rear light for my ebike, I did buy red led drl strip whit amber sequential turn signal. 2835smd.

    I was hoping that the red led strip was bright, a single led like the one on the picture above is brighter then the whole strip.
    That's why I'm asking if some one know what led it is on the picture or can maybe tell me where to find a small red led that is bright.

    I will try to make some pictures for you soon.

    thats the one i use in repairing the bmw taillights.
    different brand but interchangeable.
    the other common type has a lense. harley-davidson taillights use those.
    yes both fail a lot.

    probably special purpose build led, not available for retail.
