When I went to the ORE rear EVO armor I had to use round LED tail/brake lights.

Now the flasher flashes real fast and it is throwing body codes that says something like "Rear right voltage high".

I am thinking that since the LED uses less voltage than the factory bulbs, the puter must think I have a blown bulb.?.


Anyone experience this?

Add a resistor? How many ohms?

I had the same problem when i installed my Front Led markers. I got a LED Bulb Load Resistor 6 Ohm / 50 Watt from gorecon.com . Im pretty sure you can find them somewhere else cheaper. They work great. You need one per side. Im pretty sure you knew that anyways. :smokin:

Perfect! Thank You!

I was pretty sure I need a load resistor.. just didn't know how much of a load and where to get it.

Thanks!

They get really ,really hot. I found that the hard way.:shaking: I just let my blinkers on for a very long time and my hand came in contact with one of them.

Hmmmmmmm........

They do have pretty big heat sinks on them.. Where did you mount yours?

They are behind the grill. But i was running my blinkers for about two hours, the heat sinks work fine. I just saw one of them hanging down and decided to tuck it in and i hold it for too long. Its not too bad, its about average heat for a load resistor. Nothing to worry about.

When I replaced my tail lights in my box truck with leds' I had the dealer replace the flasher with the proper one and that took care of it.

You need an electronic flash module. They sell them at any parts store for around $12.

Drive around here, nobody does. :shaking: When I used to teach electronics, kids were always figuring how to blow those LED's up by overloading them.
LOL... When I posted that, my first thought was I should have put "flasher modules" or something, since all I could picture reading my own post was the idiots driving around with their hazards on.

you should be able to get a load resistor at your local RadioShack
