Do the LED's dim

I was wondering, I want to upgrade the lighting in my 2014 v6 and wanted to know if the LED's will dim or will they stay bright?

for the most part they wont dim down like a standard bulb since they dont create smoot inside the bulb over a period of time like a standard bulbs does.

I've had the Raxiom LED Amber turn signal bulbs on my 98 V6 and they're bright as the first day I installed them.

I was wondering if I could dim them not if they will lose their brightness over time. I want to know if I could still adjust the brightness inside the car.

Thanks and sorry for the wrong wording.

I think the led has to be set up electronically to dim. I think if you vary the voltage on a led you will kill it.

I have LED interior lights and just went out and unlocked the door. I watched as the lights timed out and they did, in fact, dim as they went out. I don't see why LEDs anywhere else wouldn't be able to dim (if you can dim the factory lightsthat you're replacing). Best bet is to ask your LED vendor.

I'm sorry for not seeing this post sooner. Our LEDs are all constant current, meaning they can be dimmed

I have them in my 2007 GT, and they work the same as the factory bulbs
