Automotive tail & brake light Car Vehicle Sky Grille


The sticker says LED tail light doesn't necessary mean the reverse (back up) lights are also LED.

I know the cargo light is fluorescent so just wondering if reverse lights are the same.

Also, does any know the bulb size of the cargo light if wanting to upgrade to LED.

Thanks

The reverse lights on my S model are LED. They are a super bright white output, rather than the dim yellow fluorescent.

Also curious about the cargo light. I pulled the housing out today and noticed the bulb said "7576" but I wasn't able to find any bulb with that size online. I saw a bunch that looked similar, but I don't know for sure.

It might be DE7576?

Found a bunch of DE7576 online as replacement but none of those LED...

Phillips does not have vehicles listing up to 2022:

I just replaced the trunk light a few minutes ago. Works great! I used this bulb:

Will do, I can’t wait to get them. I hate incandescent bulbs, especially on the interior. It’s weird to me that all the exterior bulbs are LED except for the front turn signals and interior lights.

Some LED balasts are defective and operate from background current that may be leaking from all live wiring that is connected to “soft” disconnects like dimmers.

In our house we have dozens of identical LED can lights, but two of them glow slightly when off on a dimmer circuit (different circuits) while others on the same circuits are dark. Another glows when other circuits in the same room are on, and one takes 3-4 minutes to go completely dark when you turn it off.

So different people may have different results from the same bulb in the same car model.The quintessential YMMV situation.
