From the factory, the 2014+ GMC Sierra has LED panels in the headlight that illuminate in amber color, for the parking light and the turn signal. With these OEM-grade replacement LED panels, you can upgrade your look by making them a brilliant white or controllable multicolor LED, with a "switchback" amber turn signal effect.
Our replacement LED panels are a direct replacement for the factory ones, but have five functions, with two unique LED chips. Each factory LED is replaced by two RGBW 5050 LEDs, and the amber LED has been replaced by a high-power 3030 chip. The RGBW LEDs can be powered by parking lights or your choice of 12V source, providing a clean white color while driving or full multicolor. Then, when you hit your turn signal, the white shuts off, and they light up in bright amber to indicate signaling (Switchback Model)
Your order includes four total panels, to replace the OEM panels on both the driver and passenger side. You also receive the required high-power inductive constant-current drivers. Included in the driver is a digital latching circuit to control the switchback function between white and amber.
Made in USA, these replacement panels utilize amber high-power 3030 SMD chips, which are rated at 15W of total power per side. The amber chips are a custom-manufactured downcoverted 1800K LED for superior brightness compared to standard amber chips, ensuring extremely high brightness, even during the day. The RGBW 5050 LEDs are high-binned for color uniformity.
This product is not just RGB- it is RGBW! That means there is an LED chip that is specifically white in color, right next to the standard red, green, and blue chips. By using an RGBW controller rather than the standard RGB, you can activate and control the white chip independently of the colors. This provides a much more uniform, pure, and bright white color than the traditional method of combining all RGB signals.
There is a standard RGBW input plug (5-pin) to connect to your RGBW controller, which should then be powered by your parking lights or any other 12V signal. This connector is plug-and-play with Diode Dynamics controllers. We strongly recommend the use of Diode Dynamics controllers with this product, for ease-of-use. However, you can connect any standard RGB or RGBW controller by cutting the pins off the connector end, and connecting them to your controller, in the required color configuration, as dictated by the controller you use. This does not void the warranty.
For OEM-grade reliability, the LEDs are protected by a thermal management system, which is integrated into the panel and driver. If the temperature of the LEDs becomes too high for any reason, the output of the LEDs will decrease, to ensure long life in even the harshest environments. And of course, the advanced constant-current driver ensures that there will be no damage to the LEDs long-term from the harsh electrical system of the vehicle.
Professional installation is strongly recommended, as the factory headlights must be opened in order to replace the LED panels. Checkout our dealer locator tool:
