AAC Interior Light issue
Hey Everybody,

I purchased the interior kit and the reverse light kit from AAC and I absolutely love everything except for one small issue. The interior Map Lights stopped working, I know the polarity is correct because they were working but now they are out. I have contact AAC and I am sure they will make good on the issue, but I was curious if anyone else had a similar issue. Thanks

just bumping it up

Thanks for the help I could use it. Unfortunately my truck has given me headaches with anything I throw at it aftermarket in the realm of electrical. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks again

It may be a voltage issue. I know they solved my HID problem so I hope they can solve your interior light issue.

I use the same Oracle LEDs that AAC sells, and for the most part they're the best I've been through. Another guy I know has a power spike of up to 18V when he turns them on, and the LED bulbs have a max voltage of 14V, so this does cause them to have a much shorter life. I believe it's an issue with the TPCM, which may be a reason for your other electrical issues as EVERYTHING electrical runs though it.

TPCM? I am not familiar.

Any pics of what the lights look like?

You're not alone. I purchased a set of the interior lights LEDs as well. 1 of them worked for about a week, the others work great.

I should've called about it the day it stopped working, but got busy, and I never got around to it. I figure my time has run out to bitch and complain about it.

I'm not sure why this happened, I just know the passenger side map light stopped working. I tried swapping it with the drivers' side, and it still didn't work. The old #194 still works, so that is what I put back in

ACC told me that the Dodge runs 8v through the lights at certain times and can cause them to blow. They told me to wire in resistors but after spending $62 for five light bulbs I am really not at will to have to alter them to work properly. They said I can send them back and they will attempt to hook them up which is pretty cool on their part.
