I got them awhile ago from a guy on ebay selling used resistors. I grabbed a bunch of different ones. I think he is out of the 1.2 ohms though. But two 3 ohm 25 watt resistors wired in parallel will give you 1.5 ohm 50 watt. That should be close enough to have it work.

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

ok so i went out and tried this... i installed everything like you said and tried the bulb and it worked fine... i put the headlight back in and it starts blinking fast again... took it back out messed around with the wires... kinda work for a few sec but then went back to fast blinking... it works fine with emergency lights... any idea what i might have done wrong?

Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

You have the resistor correct? Maybe WJ's need a volt regulator...

Sounds like a bad connection with the resistors. It worked when you tested and then didn't when you put the headlight back in. Sounds like a textbook poor connection. Try again. And lose those crappy plastic scotchloks! Uninsulated butt connectors and adhesive-lined heat shrink FTW!!!

turbo_neon is on a distinguished road
Re: How To: Install VLEDs Dual Color Turn Signals

well i attemped this today on my 08 with OEM projectors and they worked for the first 10 mins just fine... Then only one would stay white, now only the amber is working?

I did get a lot of help from Jason (Lipschtizwrath) and man when these things are working they look great!! I ordered matching fog lights so i really want to get these working. Anyone have any insight to what my problem might be?

Thanks in adv.

Jake

I would triple check your connections. Use a voltmeter to make sure the resistor wires are hooked up to the correct (-)Ground and (+)Turn wires. Black should be constant ground and then check the other two wires using the meter for voltage when the blinker is on, those are the two wires you want to splice into. If those are correct then I would try testing different 50 watt resistors of different ohms, 1.2, 3, and 6 probably.

Tell me about it being frustrating not having them work properly, it took me months to finally figure mine out, but got them working trying different resistors. Trial and error, and alot of blown fuses too.
