Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

when the parking lights are on they are both white as usual...they work like a charm, it isnt till i turn off the parking lights that i have the problem...one srtobes w/a the other bulb just flashes amber, and when hazards are on they dont flash in sequence..ie one white while other amber but remember its only when lights are in off position

Sounds like bad circuitry in the bulb. Call up AL and tell them you want a new bulb. I'm sure they will want you to prove that the bulb is at fault by doing a whole bunch of different tests. All you need to tell them is that you swapped bulbs side-to-side without touching anything else and the problem followed the bulb. That should be end of discussion right there.

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

No reply from al yet, however "said" defective ligh now wont illuminate white when parking lights are turned "on". still strobes w/a when signal is applied. what a pain in the ass, embarrassing none the less...i ordered a new light this afternoon...hopefully its just the damn bulb...now im kind of skeptical about this sb lighting mod if bulbs come shipped deffective. we shall see once new bulb comes in.

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

It could also be the contact for the parking light circuit. I'm not positive, but the behavior you are describing is somewhat indicative that your parking light circuit is somehow effed.

You might try pulling the bulb out and checking the little "wires" that comprise the contacts at the base of the bulb. If they are somewhat bent, they may not be making the proper contact. Just a thought while you wait for your new bulb.

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

I had no problems at all with this. Got the bulbs from al and the 3ohm resisters from vleds. Took about 15 minutes and that's only because the drivers side is a pain.
If you guys want pics or a vid ill toss one up, but you all know what they look like.
