I got these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08NHNMF9P/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1First, I am sure that this subject has been thoroughly discussed. Can somebody point me to the best answers?
I have a red 2021 RAV4 prime XSE with the Premium Package. I just checked out my neighbor's new 2023 RAV4 Prime XSE (without the Premium Package). It has wonderful, bright LED interior lighting. It makes my non-LED interior lighting look like it is from incandescent bulbs that are about to burn out.
Is it possible for me to easily replace those bulbs and not have to change out anything else? Will somebody point me in the right direction for the kit (preferably from Toyota, even if it is more expensive than aftermarket), and for detailed installation instructions so that I will not break anything? What I would like to change out are all of the overhead lights and the rear cargo area light. My neighbor's 2923 does not have a switch on the rear cargo area light's cover, but my 2021 does. Can I just change easily to an LED bulb, but keep the cover with its switch?
Second, and I assume that I know the answer to this already, my neighbor's 2023 RAV4 Prime XSE (non-PP) has lit door panel switched (for the windows, locks, etc.), and also for her overhead console's switches. Is it possible to easily replace my non-lit door panel switches and also the overhead console switched with lit switched, simply with a plug-and-play kit (ideally from Toyota) and not having to change any wiring? The last time I read about this subject, someone had taken apart their overhead console and door panel, only to discover that the wiring harness was different from what was needed. I do not want to mess with something like that. Instead, as a workaround, I modified someone else's idea and put a small LED puck light-and-switch combo on a ledge at the leading edge of my 2021's cupholder (that ledge is no longer there on the 2023 cup holder), pointed it up and surrounded it with a rigid piece of black heat shrink tubing (it fits over the LED puck light perfectly). All I have to do is put my finger inside that tubing and press down to turn on the light. That lights up the whole upper panel quite nicely without blinding me, and the battery is replaceable. Still, I would prefer lit switches. Can anyone help me with that?
Easy as changing a light bulb.
Yes, you can replace all the switches except the overhead console with lighted ones. Lots of instructions on this forum. Start with the window switches: Free Shipping Lighted LED Power Single Window Switch Blue Color For Toyota RAV4 RAV 4 2019 2020 2021 2022 LHD
