11-13 VLED 3157 DRL 5k

I've been running some $15.99, 6k 3157 leds off of eBay. I decided to change them to 5K and went with some VLED 3157's 5k. Just wanted to post up the results for reference.

I also went with the 5K LEDs and like the result.

I have 2011 JGC, installed 3157 LED bulbs on the DRL, they did not light up at all. Do I need a resistor ? What could be the issue?

Hi rblazer,

Some cheaper 3157 LEDs have a different base (a deeper round section) which stops them pushing in far enough - if you compare the base of the LEDs with the standard bulb you can easily see if they are different.

There is no fix for this issues apart from ensuring that you buy the correct shape base the next time.

Thank you very much. You were right I can't believe that they would make these 3157 LED bulbs with different lengths at the connection point.
