Headlamp Drl to LED

Changed stock 3157 bulbs to LED bulbs
Just had to move one wire from center port on bulb connector to outside plugged port to get them to work.

Why did you have to move a wire on the connector?

Re: Headlamp Drl to LED

Not sure why you would want to move a wire to get this to work. I have had 3157 compatible LED's in my 2012 WK2 since delivery. Apart from a couple of replacements they have been great and no burning of plugs etc. They are Plug and Play if you have the right bulb. Only watch out is that they are polarity sensitive ie the bulbs must be in the right way. If they don't work turn 180 deg. I have learned to check before refitting caps etc!

Re: Headlamp Drl to LED

Ones I am currently using which have been best to date are Putco 243157W-360 White Plasma LED bulbs. Search for this on Amazon. A pair are currently listed for $50.67.
