My hat's off to Timmy B

Thanks to Timmy's thread, I tried what he did and PRESTO!, my dual color LED's are finally alive and well. I ran them for a good while, went for a ride, turned the blinkers on and off and whatever else it did to piss me off but NOT ANYMORE. Lol. Stayed on and came back to white a second after the amber went off. I had the two existing 3 Ohm resistors from VLEDS and the one and only 1.2 Ohm resistor I got from ebay. I put the 1.2 Ohm on the driver's side because as you know its a tight spot. I than put the two 3 Ohm resistors in parallel (which made it 1.5 Ohms) on the passenger side. These single 1.2 Ohm resistors seem extremely hard to come buy so as an alternative you can just order four 3 Ohm resistors from VLEDS instead of two. If you have two already, get two more. I've been back and forth with Jake from VLEDS and he said he would definately get these 1.2 Ohm resistors if this was the fix. For those of you that have patience, by all means, wait for that day. Lol. Thanks again Timmy and whoever else helped you out.

3.) Go to the driveway
4.) Turn on Lights
5.) Take a couple of pics
6.) Upload to photobucket

And incase you still don't know V-LEDs is a website which sells LED bulbs. The particular one we are talking about is the Type 2 or Stage 2 I forgot the name bulb. Basically, its functions as two colors white for running and amber for turning but in order to accomplish this you need to use resistors and splice in the wires. I did on mine months ago and its awesome. I highly suggest them as long as you WK guys have you resistors figure out.

VLEDS is a company that makes and sells all kinds of LEDs for your vehicle. They pretty much have every bulb for your vehicle in LED.
