    How does that fit, looks like you have to mount it outside? Any pictures? The DD bulb I bought for the trunk was the HP5. I wonder if the HP3 does the same thing. Could just be one of those compatibility issue with Subaru trunk light wiring scheme. If DD can't fix it I'll just find another vendor, something similar or brighter. Beside this issue, the other light bulbs I bought from DD have no problem.

    It fits on the inside with an adapter. I'll post some pics if I get the chance later or tomorrow.

    Best pic I could take, but it'll give you an idea of how it is mounted.

    I'm not sure what is causing that issue with the HP5, but we'd be happy to upgrade you (at no cost) to the SMD12 LED board or even a flex-light if you wish.

    We didn't incur this behavior when we had an XV in our studio

    Feel free to give us a call for more assistance with the exchange: (314) 205-3033

    Thanks for the offer Nick! I just bought a Can Bus LED mention on the lighting section to resolve the issue. I will keep the bulb as a backup or use it somewhere else.

    So happy I found out I'm not the only one with this problem. I just use the switch when I need it now. Drove me crazy for months before I figured it out.

    Yes, no problem in mine. The LED strip.
