Do the LED dim as the puddle light start to turn off? I know that with the sock bulbs they will slowly dim prior to shutting off. I thought that a LED needs a constant voltage...??? It would be nice to match my licence plate LED and my HID headlights. The amber puddle lights look bad. :(

Thanks for the write up, did this last week on my fusion. The white light of the LED looks much better than the yellow from the factory bulbs

Standard "360" bulbs work fine and are plenty bright (as you can see in the pics)...the housing was designed for an incandescent bulb so it shines bright.

I just finished the puddle lamp upgrade for my 2014 Fusion Titanium. Weird, but I didn't need the 150ohm 3w resistor (I bought 5 for $3.65)... I was kinda scared to use my Dremmel tool to cut off the lens, but I think it turned ok.

Pictures to follow...

Here's the pic of my puddle light upgrade. Sorry for the many pictures.


Here's the "before" pictures.



I used a Dremmel tool to carefully cut away along the edges, carefully trying not to damage the lens.



I ordered LEDs from SuperBrightLeds. They have the highest Relative Intensity rating (5/5 bulbs)



It's slightly longer (a smidge) and the capacitors are a slightly tight fit, but it works.



The bulb in the housing.



I might regret it someday, but I was in a rush, and I used Super Glue to re-attach the lens on the housing.



I applied pressure for about 20 minutes to let the glue set. Thank you patio chair leg!



The housing re-attached, to test it.



To my surprise, it turns on perfectly, without any flickering at all!



The lens re-attached, and the puddle light re-installed. Looking good. Now, gotta await for night time for full effect.



Ahhhh, that's what I was going for. Now, I have LEDs all around (well, besides the weird bulbs in the front signal turn)



The other side.



And with the door open.








You're still here?!? C'mon, go buy LEDs and get upgradin'! :winker:
