Arrow FS: Kia Turn Signals LEDs - AWESOME Mod! Ships same-day!




Kia LED Turn Signals

We offer a number of LED options for your front and rear turn signal bulbs!

Rear Turn Signal
: First, choose your color. You should select the color which matches the reflector housing. If there is no reflector, you can choose the color you prefer. Then, choose your brightness!

Front Turn Signal
: We only list amber bulbs for the front turn signal, as well as switchback, if applicable (more details below). This is because other colors, such as white and red, are not legal for front turn signal use.

Stage 1:
Equal brightness as OEM factory bulbs, with the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
Stage 2: Much brighter than OEM bulbs, with the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
Stage 3: Brightest Option! Several times brighter than OEM and Stage 2
These are bright!
The stage 1 single-color bulb has 27 5050-size SMDs. The stage 2 single-color bulb has four 1.5W chips along with one forward-firing 5W CREE chip. The switchback stage 1 uses 30 amber and 30 white 1210 SMD chips, while the stage 2 switchback uses 60 dual-color 3528 chips.The bulbs use an exact terminal and will fit as a replacement for stock incandescant. All bulbs use less power and heat than the stock bulbs, and will last longer than your vehicle. Our LEDs use only the best components and are of the highest quality.
The bulbs are designed for exceptional heat dispersion, and a diode is implanted to protect the LED from reverse polarity or voltage surge. The LED is wired for 12v operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.

To order or to find more information select your Kia HERE and then select "front turn" or "rear turn"!



Hyperblink Fix:
The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because LEDs use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out. There are two ways to fix this:
?
  • Flasher Replacement: If possible, replacing the flasher is the easiest option. On some vehicles, you can remove the flasher, which is a small relay module under the dash, and replace it with a new flasher designed for LEDs, which will not blink fast. It is the module that actually makes the "clicking" noise. Some newer vehicles have this integrated into the vehicle's computer, so it is not possible to replace it. If we know of a flasher that is compatible with your vehicle, it will be listed here as an option. We recommend this over resistors whenever possible, because it is an easier installation. You only need one LED flasher for both front and rear LED turn signals.


    Resistor Kit:This is a universal way to fix the issue, and will work for any vehicle. By adding a resistor to the bulb's circuit, you can mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, and return the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. The installation takes 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you usually only need one set of resistors, on the front or rear, to create enough resistance for the turn signal circuit. Here is a video on how to install resistors:



Switchback Option: For some vehicles, you may be able to use a specialty bulb known as "switchback." This bulb is only suitable for front turn signals, with a dual filament bulb (1157, 3157, 7443, etc), when there is a clear reflector. Normally, your front turn signal lights up half power amber when you turn on your headlights, and flashes full power amber when the turn signal is activated. By using this dual-filament design, along with an integrated controller chip in the bulb, you can get a very cool effect: the switchback bulb lights up white when your headlights are turned on, and flashes amber when you use the turn signals. When you switch the turn signal off, it "switches back" to white. This allows you to gain a uniform white appearance in the front of the vehicle at night, while still having amber turn signals.



All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 1-year full warranty. For more information, please view the FAQ guide.

To order or to find more information select your Kia HERE and then select "front turn" or "rear turn"!

Your selection site has only sorento's up to 2013. What would fit a 2014 Kia Sorento SX-L?

The listing for the 2014 models has not been updated just yet, but the 2013 products should still fit. If you send us an email with the locations you are looking for, we can match the factory bulbs with LED equivalents: [email protected]
