Note: The Alternator light is the only LED affected.
Why is an “Alternator Exciter” being added to my order?
You ordered a LED for your alternator. If your car has an alternator, you need an alternator exciter to make the alternator charge.
What is an “Alternator Exciter”?
An alternator exciter creates the needed current draw for the alternator to charge when using an LED.
How do I know if I have an alternator?
Why is polarity important?
LEDs will only light with correct electrical polarity (+) (-) unlike incandescent light bulbs that illuminate regardless of the electrical polarity.
What is reverse polarity?
BA7s have a fixed base so the bulb must be manufactured in reverse of standard.
Will Star LEDs work in a 6 Volt car?
Yes, and we carry both 6V and 12V LEDs.
Do I want Cool White or Warm White?
It depends on the look you are trying to achieve; Modern or Vintage.
Cool White LED bulbs give a modern look. They are “bright and cold” with a slight blue tint.
Warm White LED bulbs give a vintage look. They are “soft and warm” with a slight yellow tint.
Are Star LEDs Plug and Play?
Yes, these LEDs are true drop-in. Simply replace the bulb and you are done.
Can I use Star LEDs if my car has it’s original wiring?
Yes, and you’ll get 3X brighter light with 90% less heat and current.
What is the advantage of using LEDs?
One of the biggest advantages is the ability to see your gauges at night. You’ll also be able to see your warning lights in the daylight.
Are LEDs dimmable?
Star LEDs will dim approximately 5% per bulb on a voltage dropping dimmer before shutting off.
2 LEDs = 10% and 8 LEDs = 40%
How do I know how many LEDs I need?
- Take a bulb count
- Use the reference charts on the order pages
Why are my oil, generator, or turn signal colors are different than the reference chart?
- gauge has been replaced with a different year
- incorrect restoration
- gels are sun burned
Adjust color to your needs when ordering.
Can I get custom color illumination?
Yes. When ordering illumination, select your desired color.
Do you warranty your bulbs?
Yes, Auto-Hub warranties all of our bulbs for one full year when used in normal vehicle applications.
