I installed some aftermarket led tail lights on my 2018 Accord. Does anyone know if doing something like this will void my bumper to bumper warranty, or would it just void anything to do with my tail lights? I've still got about 16000 miles on the warranty period.

Of course the aftermarket tail lights will not be covered. Now if there was some damage to other electrical equipment that was determined that the damage was a result of the after market tail lights it too wouldn't be covered. Not an electrician so not sure if the terminology I'm about to use is correct, however I have been told that there is a different draw on the electrical system w/LED lights vs incandescent bulbs (LED have a lower draw). Because of this difference in some installations it requires an additional equalizer so they work correctly. Now, for an example... if for some reason the lower draw of these lights would damage the alternator then that alternator probably would not be covered under warranty.

With all that said depending on your dealership and the relationship you have with them even if it was a fault of the LED lights it could still be covered under warranty. ;)
