Chevrolet Cruze License Plate LEDs


License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your Cruze. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your Cruze!

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.

With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your Cruze looks at night.

Brightness:

Diode Dynamics offers several bulb options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs. (24 lumens)
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright! (56 lumens)
HP5: Triple the brightness of OEM! (92 lumens)

Bulb Design

SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS (to fit your Cruze).

All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

FYI, The Cruze license lights both aim to the left, but with a file and/or knife and a bit of patience a person can turn one of them around to create a symmetric appearance.

This is true of many GM vehicles. The Camaro sometimes requires a bit of aiming for the best look.

With the HP3's you'll get a very even spread of light thanks to the clear diffusing lens

Could you list the wattage of the stock bulbs and each of the LED bulbs? It would be interesting to see the wattage of the LEDs vs the OEM bulbs.
