Re: Dual color LED Parking/turn light

I think thats the best thing to get, the chrome bulbs. Because they are much cheaper. BUT, if these dual LEDs do last along time like they claim then i think they are worth buying. For 50 bucks I expect these LEDs to last at least 4 years, if not the life i have the car.

Re: Dual color LED Parking/turn light

I like it! Did it require a load equalizer as well? Where does a guy pick up a pair? Are you at liberty to share the price and the vendor?

Thanks!

V-Leds.com sells dual 3157 bulbs. A resistor is needed, BUT, it appears some WK owners get them working with a 3ohm 50 watt resistor, where I and a few others needed a 1.2ohm 50 watt resistor to get them to work.

A pair of bulbs is abut $50 and a set of resistors is about $10, plus shipping charges. Its def not cheap, but like i said above if they do last along time like they claim LEDs do I think they are worth it.

Search thru threads related to dual LED's, Fankie has a thread on his install and people commented on diff issues they had with them. It finally took me months before I figured out I needed a 1.2ohm resistor for them to work properly.

Isnt it amber when you turn the lights on though, or just with the blinker? I thought when you turn them on they are amber all the time.

I dont, because I used a single 1.2ohm resistor. But, to wire two 3 ohm resistors in parallel to give you a 1.5ohm load just splice the wires together. I'll take a pic using two resistors I have laying around, hold on.

Re: Dual color LED Parking/turn light

Here's one of the ways you can wire two resistors in parallel. Just use splice taps to splice into the wires of the first resistor. Me, I personally like to solder all my connections and cover with shrink tubing. I didnt actually solder them together, but sure you can get the idea from the pic.
