Why do I want to upgrade the LED turn signal bulbs for my 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500?
“I’ve recently been looking for good switch-back turn signal bulbs for my 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Auxito LED offers very bright switchback front turn signal bulbs. The amber is just as bright as the white running light and that’s a huge plus in my book.”
“The LED lights that I had before Auxito were cheaply made lights off of Amazon. I always had problems with them. Such as burning out after very little use. Way back when I first got the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 the stock lights were nowhere compared to Auxito. They were just amber as well. I don’t like an amber running light on newer vehicles. And with the Auxito turn signal bulbs, you can keep your amber turn signal but have a nice bright white running light on Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
( A word from the auxito editor: I was also unhappy with the amber parking a long time ago because when I turned on the headlights (LED lights) the parking light was always abrupt. So I had to replace it. This switchback function led turn signal bulbs/parking light bulbs to run as "amber-white-amber-white", making it easier for others to see. I am satisfied that they will light up with white color as the low-filament running light/parking light and switch to bright amber at any time when making turn signals! )
"So that's it. I 100% agree lol. I was also unhappy with the amber parking before, because the parking light was always abrupt when I turned on the headlights (LED lights). So I had to replace it :("
How to install LED front turn signal bulbs?
“Installation is very simple. I took the whole headlight assembly out from Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to make it 100x easier. It’s much easier and faster than trying to rest through the fenders and replace the bulb. It’s not hard to take apart either. To start I took the grille off the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. It’s only held on with 4 10mm bolts on top and 6 clips in the middle. You can have that off in a min or two. Each headlight assembly is only held on by 3 10mm bolts. Two are directly on top of the housing where you can see. And the 3rd one on each side is located up under the headlight assembly near the rear lower corner of each housing. Once you have that all off the wiring harness is still connected. You can simply pull that clip for the harness off and boom the whole assembly is off the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Now it’s much easier to replace the turn signal bulbs. You simply pull the old ones out and put the new ones in. (Make sure you push them in all the way, or they won’t work lol they are slightly longer than the stock ones) these lights are 100% Plug and play. “
Once you installed all the turn signal bulbs, you can simply throw everything back together
The installation will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour based on experience."
About the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LED turn signal road test
"The turn signal bulbs can definitely be seen that’s For sure on Chevrolet Silverado 1500. They are super bright. The amber turn signal activates as soon as I hit the turn signal switch. Once I shut my signal off it takes 1 second for the running light to flip back on. Very impressive honestly how the bulb works. The amber turn signal lights also activate when you lock/unlock the Chevrolet Silverado 1500."
Upcoming lighting upgrade program for the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
"I actually just installed Auxito LED Low Beam Headlights on my Chevrolet Silverado 1500! I’m just now getting them dialed in (adjusting). I also just installed the Auxito LED license plate bulb. The next upgrade I’m planning is high beam bulbs and dome light. Then my Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will almost be all Auxito!
And I 100% recommend Auxito LED. Great quality auto parts lights! Fast shipping and everything seems to work as it should!"
