V-Leds.com and Dual LED's.

Sweet, I have emailed Vleds.com about the issue with the dual amber/white LED's and Bill said he is working on supplying the correct resistors needed for the WK where the 3 or 6 ohm type did not work properly. He even wants to name the "PROMO" code after me, TimmyB. yippie.. Here's his email, and I mentioned that alot of jeepgarage members order from Vleds and we are here to help his store.

Hi Tim,
First off thank you so much for using our products. We are very happy you
like them and we appreciate your business.

I'm glad you were able to troubleshoot that issue. As you know, with so
many possible applications with cars and bulbs, sometimes we don't know all
the fixes. If we had the chance to have every car in our R&D department for
an afternoon, we would undoubtedly have all the answers. Troubleshooting the
issues from a far can be challenging, as we are missing a very important
part of the puzzle, the car.

We are trying to secure a good source for the 1.2Ohm Resistors, hopefully we
will have those available soon. In the meantime, I may have a solution
similar to the one that you posted on the forum. We could take a couple
3ohms and put them on our double mounting plates, do the soldering and
include a cover over the whole thing. This would make it safer and easier
for those less inclined. Owners could paint them very easily as well, to
blend in better.

Let me know your thoughts on that if you have a moment. I'll try to get a
mock up soon and can shoot you a pic if you like.

Finally, we really appreciate your support on this fix as well as on the
forums. We would be happy to come up with a new Promo Code, specifically for
you & your forum members. Most the existing ones out there are set to expire
at years' end.

I was thinking we would create Promo Code "TIMMYB" which you can share with
your community, and if there is something special you are working on ie your
next mod, let me know. Maybe I can try and get you a sweeter deal on what
you need!


Let me know what you think, and if you don't mind having the code named
after you, we could name it JEEPGARAGE if you prefer!




Thank you,

Bill

Re: V-Leds.com and Dual LED's.

Here's my email i wrote Bill.

The submitted form fields are:

cmd: emailform

selSubject: General Product Question

Message: I purchased the 3157 dual amber/white leds w/resistors awhile back
for my 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Long story short they did not work properly
and after alot of research I got them working with 1.2 ohm 50 watt
resistors. I go on jeepgarage.org alot and helped other Jeep owners getting
their leds to work properly.I know some people from that site emailed you
about this, but I see you still do not carry 1.2 ohm or similar resistors
that people might need for the leds to work properly. I do like the dual
leds alot and think they are a great product,I just feel the listing should
include the correct resistors needed for them to work properly. Here's a
link to a thread on that Jeep site.
