leds in rear lights (euro).

Installed led 3157 lamps in rear clusters,One way round they work on low output ok but nothing on high!. Other way they just blow the parking light fuse.
Dont know if these are wired the same as US rear lights but they work fine in the front light units so it is not the lamps !!

Any ideas?

Re: leds in rear lights (euro).

it has different wiring.


a regular bulb does not have polarity...it will work either way you put it in. since LED have polarity in SOME sockets they need to use what is called a CK type 3157 bulb. every major LED seller will have them.

i have posted pics here in the past. try a search/
