I "disabled" my center orange parking lights today. There are 3 wires going to it, a Black one (Ground), a Yellow one (Turn Signal), and a Grey one (Parking Light). I cut the grey one and taped it upBe. I cut it far back enough so that I can reconnect it if I wanted to. I think it makes the front look a lot cleaner.

I also replaced the backup lights with 50W 360 degree Pure White Cree LED Bulbs. They a lot brighter than the OEM bulbs. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pics of them before for comparison.

This pic is without any adjustments on the camera.


This one is with the ISO set at 100.


And a picture of the floor with the backup lights on. The street light doesn't shine on this side on the floor. You can see it to the left (Orange light).

It would be great if you could post step by step photos, especially the license plate led and back up lights . I'm always scared that i will break something when I try to do any mods. and that it will cost big $$$$ to get anything I've broken fixed.

They OEM bulbs are T16, but I used T10 LED. Wedge bulbs generally use the same connector. It's the bulb size that changes.

These are the ones I installed.

I included a link to a video for the license plate lights. The guy is changing them on an Accord, but the HR-V lights are very similar.

For the back up lights, there's a small cover for each light on the inside of the tailgate. Once you remove those, you can easily access the bulbs and unlock them from the lights by turning it (I think it was to the left). Once unlocked and removed from the light, you just pull the bulb straight out and insert the new one in.

I will give these a try for the backups.
I tried some Philips 3 watt 921 LED's that cost 20.00 at Pep Boys.
I was not happy with the difference in output from the stock bulbs, and returned them.

I have the Phillips 921. I like them. The backup camera is pretty good in low light condition. Anything brighter doesn't make that much of the difference. Besides, it is almost impossible to see behind the back without the camera.
