Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

I actually have some 1.2 ohm 50 watt resistors I got off ebay i can try. I will do it tomorrow or over the weekend and keep everyone posted.

I think running two 50 watt resistors wont be good for the cuircut, for some reason. Though im not sure, just guessing.

Hasnt anyone figured this issue out? I just googled it and couldnt find any info on this problem. dam it.

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

This is a great mod and used Frankie's writeup as the instructions. I believe I bought them February/March and they still work perfect.

Are you 100% sure they work perfectly? Have you driven the car withthe lights on for awhile, then got out after using the blinker to see if the white comes on right away? Im really not understanding how some can get them to work and I cant with using the same exact parts. I got the dual leds and 3ohm resistors from vleds, and they dont work right. I spliced them in right near the bulbs themselves.

I've had them since March or something like that. They have worked fine for me but I believed I used 6ohm resistors.

Oh and if anybody needs a pair of 6 ohm resistors with the gel filled splice taps. Let me know I have a spare set still in package never used and will sell for cheap.

Really, you used 6ohm? Ive been lazy and havent tried the 1.2ohm or 7ohm resistors i have laying around. I'll solder some wires on and try out both to see if one works.

Oh, and last night i noticed the whites stay off well over a minute now after using the blinker, more like 3-4 min. Ughhhh

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

haha i hate those things i gave up on them lol - mario said he was going to try and figure them out awhile back.. i wonder if he ever got it done.. meh trolling i go- TimmyB I'm in the same boat you are.. They worked for the first few times then. nothing, sometimes it will maybe light up slowly, but pretty much off the majority of the time. I least i can signal though so whatever

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

I finally got mine working today, I used 1.2ohm 50 watt resistors and they work perfectly, SO FAR!!!. I have had my lights on for over an hour now and they still work perfectly so I really think thats the fix. I had 3 ohm in before that didnt work, then tried 7 ohm today and they didnt even come on, then tried 1.2ohm and bingo!!!!
