I am going to be installing a set of the Rockridge LED brake lights and have a question about the resistors.
I actually don't mind the fast blink and would prefer it over the hot resistor but will it trigger the bulb out indicator in the dash if I don't install the resistor. I didn't even know it had the warning but one of the tail lights went out once and it sure enough told me on the dash.

Well, pulled the rear OEM light this weekend and mocked up the led w/o resistor. Tried using the turn signal and after a blink or two it started fast blinking and I got a message on the dash saying the lamp was out. Guess I'll be installing the resistors after all.
If you're model year has the bulb out indicator, it is likely you'll need two resistors for each bulb. The 3157 has two circuits/filaments.
I'm running Truck-lite 4" round LEDs on mine and had the fast flash and bulb out fault during the install but the resistors corrected it. Didn't have to clear any codes, it just started working right once the resistors were connected. You can get a standard harness pigtail with the resistor already built in. It has been almost a year since I bought mine, but can look up where I got them if you like. Shoot me a PM, as I'm not subscribed to this thread.
