Although the 2018 Accord tail lights are LED, the backup and turn signals are conventional bulbs. Has anyone converted them to LED and if so what brand/model replacements did you use?

Here's the bulb sizes for the Accord Sport if you need them and I assume they all use the same bulb size. Not one to change bulbs because I don't want to deal with load resistors and wiring, but I heard someone was happy with Corsomotion

Backup....4014- T10
Rear turn....7440- T20
High beam...HB3- 9005
Map, Overhead, trunk...194- T10
Vanity...Festoon 28-29mm

Heard these from Amazon for rear signal lights aren't bad, though you may need load resistors to prevent hyper-flashing. Or keep it as a feature I suppose. :D

I have a 2018 Sport 2.0 and I did the LED high beam headlights, Map and dome, and reverse. I'm having troubles with the rear turn though. My bulb is a 7507. I initially ordered the 7440 but I found out its not the right one. So I just ordered the 7507 from Amazon that supposed to be with the built in resistor. The trouble I'm having is the removal of the bulb/taillight to change it. It was a pain getting out the old one. Is there an easier way to change it? I couldn't find a way to remove the taillight b/c there is no clearance to get my fingers in the small access hole for the bulb.

I replaced the backup lights and interior lights with the bulbs from Diode Dynamics. Direct replacement without any resistors and they're fine.

I replaced the door lights, interior lights and trunk light with a great little kit of LED's from ledpartsnow.com for $24.99 incl mailing. And I have spare LEDs left over. Very satisfied.

Which LED High Beams?

For those of you that have switched out the 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs for LED, which bulbs did you decide to go with? How does the color compare to the LED low beams? Would you recommend the bulbs? Thanks!

The CorsoMotion interior replacement package is excellent. I've purchase two sets for our Touring Hybrids and had no problem with them at all. They are custom made to fit the Accord, fit perfectly, and provide amazing light that can be dimmed if you so choose. You can find cheaper LED bulbs elsewhere, but they won't fit or work as well as these do. Save yourself aggravation from buying cheap, short life, ill-fitting bulbs on eBay or Amazon. I know. . . I've been there . . . and DONE with it.

I replaced the back up lights and the ‘puddle lights’ on my Touring Hybrid with this kit from eBay. They are name brand LED by a reliable company, Philips. I am over using any old LED bulbs from dealers on eBay or Amazon, etc. They don’t last or sometimes don’t fit. Having said that, for the backup bulbs from Philips (921) didn’t quite fit the socket on my vehicle and I had to slightly file down the sides of the plastic base of the bulb so it would fit the socket. See attached photo with yellow highlights of filed areas. I’m not sure they’re any brighter than the incandescent bulbs, but they are definitely whiter and provide a sharper image in the back up camera at night. The ‘puddle lights’ fit perfectly and are brighter and cleaner white light.

Here’s the link to the package of 194 and 921 bulbs (two of each)

The Corso Motion package includes a brighter LED unit for the trunk, but I incorporated some old LED eagle eye units I had laying around. I wired it up to the socket for the trunk light. Normally I've use COB units for a very nice bright light in the trunk.

I have a question and I can't really seem to find the correct fourm to put it on, I have a brand new 2018 Honda Accord Touring and when I open up my door the light turns on under my door I pop out the plastic cover and I see that there's a bulb there and I wanna change it to a different LED or a projection bulb, i believe its a door courtesy light and I can't seem to find the bulb number to replace it, its the light on the bottom of the door thats on the touring models, if someone could let me know what bulb that is i would appreciate it and i did open the slot and its a very small bulb its proberly the same bulb as the dome lights but im not to sure????🙄😞
