2nd gen Rogue's bulb replacement / LED upgrade

Postby Leo2005 » Tue Mar 04, 2014 10:32 am

There's plenty of pictures on this forum about '08-'13 Rogue leds, hids, headlight mods etc. but not a single pic about '14. So post your upgrades/mods in this thread and others can confirm the bulb size in specific location before modding on their own. Here's the start for interior rear lights above the rear doors...the bulb is 194 which is common:

If you take out the stock bulbs, the bulb model number should be in-scripted on the base/bottom metal part. Then search the model number on google/ebay and may find the more generic/common name/number for the bulb.

This is probably the vanity light you are looking for, but check the picture to make sure
as for P1Y, I have no idea

For vanity mirrors - vanity leds from vleds.com work great but I wish I could get slightly dimmer because these are a little bit too bright for the sunvisors. Even with pure with 5k color it's still blinding me a little:

Got V3 Triton for turn signals and could not fit them at all at tail lights (not enough space between tail lamp and the body) but I was able to fit them in front headlights as 7440 bulb and that was PITA as installation but the resistor is included so no cutting wires at all this time. Picture is not that great due to sun reflection but trust me it is a lot brighter than the stock bulb pretty much just like you see on the picture:

Ordered Morimoto H11 for the low beam lights but one ballast arrived defective. Waiting for replacement:

Can you rotate the LED bulb 90 or 180 degrees? It will decrease the light output and will not cause glare. Don't worry, they won't emit infrared (heat), so by pointing the yellow phosphor part (emitting surface) towards the plastic will not melt anything.

I couldn't find any led bulbs for the trunk. All of them are too big but this...looks like a joke even during the night. It provides less light than my previous '08 Rogue:

So I have used the led circuit with squeezed all the way 3175 adapter:

Much better. Even the camera gives a blur picture because of the brightness:

The position of the trunk light is horrible. I was hoping to find just a replacement bulb.

Yes I totally agree with you. As for the replacement bulb the closest bulb to the size is vanity bulb for mirror as stated above. It is slightly bigger so you would have to push to contacts away from each other further and vanity bulb doesn't have pins on the side so it's not going to sit tight in the contacts you will have to make some kind of brackets or glue it (use your imagination) in order to keep them in place. Plus on top of it the circuit board provides more light anyway and it is pretty easy to install. Go for it...it's worth it.
P.S. On the picture the led is installed the wrong way and doesn't light up. You have to flip the adapter in order to work.

Thanks for the suggestion. Its bit more technical than I want to attempt. I guess I will wait and see if someone comes up with a new bulb.

http://www.vleds.comoffers only today a discount of 20% on the entire order. If anyone wants to upgrade the lights it is a great deal. Just ordered HB3(9005) LED bulb http://www.vleds.com/headlights/led-hea ... k-cxa.html for my high beam and 7443CK Red for my stop/running lights http://www.vleds.com/shop-bulb-numbers/ ... 1-red.html

Hey Leo, I want to replace the dome lights above the rear seats...I've looked at the site you recommended and also done a general search. Needless to say, there are a multitude to choose from. How specific do I need to be when replacing these (i.e. will any 194-type bulb fit or do I need to find something more specific to the Rogue)? I've seen a lot that have the bulbs on the end, like the ones you pictured above, some that have bulbs around the outer perimeter of the fixture, some that have both...are all these OK?

Pretty much any 194 bulb will work. The more expensive ones will give you more output.

Gotcha! And it doesn't matter how many watts (i.e. I'm not going to catch my interior roof on fire!)? Thanks for the feedback!

Have any night shots of the Morimoto H11 against a wall or garage? Interested in the light pattern. I also thought the 14s took 9005 bulbs.

Is it me or the Rogue doesn't have a glove compartment light? I looked through the manual and it appears as if there should be one.

I was about to b**** about it the other day but when I came to the dealership they told me it is applied to SL models only. Now I see yours is SL and you don't have it either. Not sure how luxury the extra bulb in the car but my fiance doesn't have it either in her 2014 Corolla. So when it gets warmer I will install the light in both cars. I do see a hole which looks like is for the bulb in the Rogue's glove box btw.

This is absurd! Does anyone know if there's a kit or something available to retrofit a bulb into the compartment?


-- Side note- the 5k vanity led bulbs are too bright and make it difficult to look into the mirror.

There's no kit available but all you need is a small switch (similar to hood pin) preferably with plastic pin and 2 wires. You'll run one positive wire to the constant source like battery, cigarette lighter etc. and negative wire throw that pin. Add any bulb you like and stick it on top of the box. Here's an example of adding led circuit board in glove box:
