I would like to replace my exisiting tail light bulbs with LED's.

Everyplace I have gone or questioned said that I need a load resistor between the leads of each bulb. Does anyone make an LED with the resistors built in? I do not want to purchase a entire LED light assembly, I just want to change the bulbs. The reason I do not want to purchase the entire premade is because they don not work sequentially as mine do now.


Any help appreciated.:thumbsup:

You will need 2 50 watt resistors for each side- 4 in total. These will simulate the load of the stock turn bulbs in the rear. If you don't the signals will quick flash as in the burned bulb detection. I wired mine in the trunk behind the trim panels. They don't need to be at the bulbs just attached to the circuit. Any more than 2 per side is a waste of money and will double the draw on the circuit.

I've got led bulbs in mine as well except that mine are non-sequential (but they all light). I have a 25 watt and a 50 watt in parallel on both sides. For mounting I bought some magnets at Lowes (1/2 x 3/4 x 1 1/4) and glued the resistors to them. Those resistors get pretty hot. I would also recommend soldering them in once you find the right combination since those clip on connectors aren't very reliable.

Superbrightlights.com has 2 flasher modules that work with LED's without having to install resistors. :woot:
