I have asked this before and maybe it was even you who answered, but access to this set of light seems tough --it was suggested to go under and up from the bumper --still couldn't figure it out (??)


Any thought to LED turn lights - or is the low resistance on flashers an issue?

Actually no I don't believe so. The Ultimate has LED tail and head lights. Fogs are another story. Haven' been to this point yet.:smile: Yes it's better to go under the skid panel as far as I can see. Ask pnwkona he's already been there.

JDM Astars 1156 Backups (7506) no need for a warning light as these are not ohm specific.

1st picture is driver side
2nd - passenger side in yellow you can see the back up light, Note- you have to maneuver in this small space and use 2 hands one on both sides of the bumper brace to get the bulb out
3rd- remove this to get access to this side as the exhaust tip makes the space smaller the other side you do not have this piece.

This can all be reached on your back or a lift as you look up they designed the cargo area away from the bumper cover.

Led Fogs since mine has Led headlight high and low combo and led DRL I found out that after installing these they do not need a voltage canceler using the LumaWerx brand. Basically the higher cost brands are designed with this built in, this would not apply to the SE/SEL model.

Thanks for the details -- a bit beyond what I would want to undertake. But my interest in access really was so I could replace a rear turn signal bulb if necessary -- unfortunately not simple at all --- don't know why manufacturers make this so tough. At least the tail/brake lights higher up are LED (on mine - Ultimate) and shouldn't need replacing.

The turns would require a LED flasher, so finding the right one being the number on the flasher and location of said oem flasher which I assume like most cars is under the steering wheel.

Most flashers are made to fit a numerous amount of cars so knowing the number and pin amount. It would be not be Kona specific but Hyundai and at least for 2 years or newer in age.

I replaced the backup lights with LED's and can confirm that the only way to do this is to go from under the bumper.

Also to be noted, the back up bulb point upward to the sky not out to the rear. Thus when selecting a bulb , having an all around LED distribution is more interesting than having a front lens (that would be seen by nobody)

I just did both the B/U bulbs and the turn signals in our 2019 Ultimate. I found that I could JUST get to the reverse lighting from under the backside of the car w/o any blood loss. It's tight, but doable. The turn signals were only viably accessible by the removal of the rearward mud flap and a partial undoing of the wheel well skirt (3 screws and 3-4 Nerf rivets). Found the following items worked very well, w/o bulb warning issues, or "hyperflash".
Non-canbus for the reverse lights:
LUYED 2 x 650 Lumens 12v-24v 1156 1141 1003 3014 54-EX Chipsets Led Bulb Used for Back Up Reverse Lights,Brake Lights,Tail Lights,Rv Light,Xenon White, Brake Lights - Amazon Canada
Canbus lighting for the turn signals:
I'm still waiting on these, to arrive for the front marker lights. (they'll need to be canbus compliant as well) Will update once they're in and in.

Ok all, tiny bit of red A$$ here. The 1157's for the upper front corners arrived this aft and I thought WOOHOO! However, they worked fine solely as 4-ways w/o the engine on. Once the car was started, I received the bulb out warning. There was a slight increase in the bulb turn signal flash speed that I could have lived with, but 2 ID10T lights on the dash wasn't gonna fly. They also didn't seem THAT much brighter, but definitely more "crisp". (At least they worked in the Suzuki Intruder front markers w/o issue, so they weren't a total loss.)

Will try another type bulb and update further!
