Received the resistors and got them installed upfront. Way more room. Perfect spot for them on the back of metal front bumper. Still plug and play.

Interior lights showed up too. The bulbs are slightly longer than OEM, so I was a little worried about clearance of map lights and overhead lights, but thank God it all went in well!

Here's a comparison of the vanity lights.

And here's the whole thing done.

There's slight hue of blue that you can't see in the photo for some reason, so if that's something you're trying to avoid, I'd go with 5,000k or 5,500k.

Wow. They are looking so damn good. I was just wondering if I would find something like this in Canada or just gotta ask my friends in the US to ship me these awesome ones.. ☺

These guys are in Bellingham, WA, basically at Canadian border. They also boast their $15 international shipping, you can always put that to a test... ??

Thanks for this post. Can you ballpark the materials cost and how long the install too you?
Not cheap at all, it was $900+ after the black Friday discount. And it really depends on the install time. If you're handy - you could knock all of them out in an afternoon.

For full disclosure, one of the sockets on the backup lights cracked during install. The other one went in very snugly.

Seems to be that 7443 base doesn't fit in 7440 socket of just the reverse bulb. Fits fine in rear turn signal socket, front turn signal socket, and brake lights 7440 sockets as Honda uses different socket on every one of them.

VLEDS know about the issue as it has been brought up by a few users and is being addressed by them.

This one fit snug.

Rear turn signal and brake light use different sockets:

And here's what the backup one looks like :

And here's a photo of what the inside of the said socket looks like (photo credit on a photo below to a fellow Facebook Honda Odyssey enthusiast)

When I look up the part number - it's the same exact socket as has been used since 1997 all the way up to 2020 lineup.


V-LEDS have been pretty awesome throughout the years and I'm sure they'll figure it out!

Wow. That looks so bright. In fact even brighter than the Top Touring trim's lights themselves. I was actually skimming through a Youtube video where one demonstrates the installation of Cougar LEDs in his Odyssey and I found one of the comments to be quite interesting, that the aftermarket LED headlight installation would make the DRL's not work during daytime until headlights are On. It was sort of intriguing and did not make much sense to me. Also, I am not sure if that is gonna happen with relay's in between though.

I got a bit curious about it and thought I would ask experts here. Does anyone face any issues with OEM DRL's during day time after installing aftermarket LEDs, like they would not turn On until the Headlights or On. Also, do you have any issues with default features like
Auto high beam or automatic lights?

Appreciate your inputs please. Thanks in advance!

This is an important part :). I orderd 6 https://www.vleds.com/194-26-ho.html for map lights and while they fit the front map lights, they didnt fit the second row and third row map light..

Whats a door flood light though? Is it the small light on the interior of the front doors at the bottom?
Yes.

And the ones I ordered for map lights were a tight fit too since they're a couple of millimeters longer, but it works! ?

Because the LEDs are so close to the reflectors in the back, they throw faint blue and purple lines across the ceiling and the pillars when they're on that my kids love!

I have cougar motor headlights and my DRL's work just fine. I bought the version with the cooling fans so after you shut the car off, you can hear the fans spinning until the delay headlights turn off...not sure if the fan is pulling enough amps to make the car think they are still halogen or what but the light output is amazing. Been in there a year now and no issues at all.

Thank you for the compliment, but we are just fellow enthusiasts, not experts! ?

For me DRLs work fine as designed with or without lights turned on. They're still bright when it's just them on and dim when all the lights are turned on as before.
Automatic headlights work as designed as well. To my knowledge, so do the auto high beams. I see the logo pop up on the dashboard on longer drives as before.
As for relays - I didn't have to install any and I don't get any error lights. The only thing u had to do was add plug and play 3 ohm resistors on each side to prevent hyper flash that would only happen if auto stop was enabled/engaged.

That was very modest of you and thank you very much for such a wonderful information. I drive a Canadian 2019 Odyssey Ex that does not come with the Auto stop feature and that's a blessing ? not to worry about hyper-flashing. Now I am tempted enough to get the LED upgrades done on my Odyssey as well.

Thank you very much airforceb2cc. Hope you have gotten the Fogs and High beams as well. Good to know that they last. Well now this comes as an option for me as well as I am only looking for the awfully looking yellow low beams, high beams and the Fog lights alone to be replaced amidst those beautiful white DRL's, if not the blinkers, brake lights and reverse lights. Thanks again
