Default Flickering Dome LED

I am preparing to replace my dome bulbs with red LED bulbs due to the flickering driver's map light.
My question - I have read that some are having the overhead console replaced due to these flickering bulbs? I'm thinking that it is probably just a bulb replacement issue - am I wrong. I don't want to deal with the dealership if at all possible. - (Overly aggressive A-type personality with no patience for BS!)
Thanks for any help!

The LED map light is not replaceable. The console has to be replaced. Unless you want to break out the soldering iron and kiss the warranty goodbye on your console, it would be best to let the dealer replace it under warranty. Taking a video of it with my phone helped since mine wouldn't always act up. The first time I brought it in for the issue they couldn't find anything wrong. It took the video to get them to look further.

I thought it would be just plug and play, take the white ones out and put the red ones in. Rather disappointed. Thanks for the input, I'm going to have to debate over this for sure. Maybe I can find a tutorial on the replacement process if I go that route.

Default Map Lite Flicker

Just had the same issue. Dealer replaced the entire overhead console which a
has map lites, dome lites,garage door buttons, rear window switch, sunroof switch due to the bulbs being non-serviceable in the map lites.
Probably a very expensive part. Good Luck with your dealer.

My driver's side light dims and flickers. I've had the console off and poked and prodded parts of it but I can't figure out how to make it stop flickering. Warranty will fix it for me when I get a chance to take it in.

Mine does the same thing!! So they will just replace the whole overhead console?

2014 here...my driver side flickers.

I did a search a couple months ago and didnt see anybody else with this problem so I thought I was the only one.
