Question Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

I just installed the Eagle Eye LED tail lights and an LED 3rd brake light on my '04 Overland. I noticed that when the head lights/tail lights are off and the turn signal is on, the tail lights blink with the signal. When the tail lights are on, there is no blinking with the signal; however, the 3rd brake light blinks.

I have noticed that there are several other members here with the same tail lights and several mention having this problem...has anybody found a solution? Thanks.

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

Is everything wired and grounded right? Do you have load resistors installed?

You're right about that. I guess the only way, like Gus mentioned, is to wire up resistors for both tail lights and 3rd brake light.

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to electrical wiring...is there a particular sized resistor that I need, and is the resistor wired in line on the power wire or somehow else? Thank you.

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

These are the same thing without the fancy cover...you'll need 3 total.

http://www.v-leds.com/BlinkerWarning...-p4783296.html

One for each turn signal circuit and one for the 3rd brake light.

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

I had the exact same problem. After contacting the company I bought it from I decided just to return them and get my money back. They were nice looking tail lights but I honestly felt like they didn't match the car well (atleast my color). I hope for the best for you though. I wish I could've gotten mine to work.

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

I like the ones I run, haven't had a problem with them yet. Only thing I have to do is replace 2 of the 4 LEDs, which I'll do soon. I've had mine for a year.

What color Jeep do you have?

Also aren't you the guy who posts all those videos of himself flying back and forth on certain planes with no real objective of where you're going? lol

You had a couple of the LED's burn out within a year on the Eagle Eye's? How are you going to go about replacing them?

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

I don't have Eagle Eyes, but the LEDs are on leaders and they just plug into their spots in the tail light housing and I have them wired into the tail lights. Just gotta find time to replace em. The ones I have are Chrome Euro Tail Lights from carid.com. Sypder makes them now, I got 'em before Spyder took them over.

Ok cool, I thought you meant the Eagle Eye.

Re: Brake/tail lights flash while signaling with Eagle Eye LED tail lights

I try to go with something different than what most people run. Mine are actually Sonar Clear Chrome Altezza's (carid.com lists them as made by Spyder now).
