Re: who here has led bulbs in 07+ tail lights?

i swapped it at the plug. but you have to change one or the other.

the resistors get HOT. so run them down under the rear.

Re: who here has led bulbs in 07+ tail lights?

did you make a little harness rub or cut and splice your factory wires? i think i might want to make a harness. i know you can buy the plugs at autolummination ct?

you swapped the wires at the bulb and not the led, which wires did you swap. i know for the resistor you only have to tap into the two outside wires... far as reverse goes any recommendations? i know you said they don't need anything special.

Re: who here has led bulbs in 07+ tail lights?

reverse dont need anything.

and yes I made a small harness. you need a female for the 3 wire end and I just wired it to a front turn signal that i had.

you just swap the 2 outer wires. ground and brake blink. the center one is the parking lamp.

Re: who here has led bulbs in 07+ tail lights?

later maybe.....

ask around if someone has a 'extra' or 'spare' headlight harness or two and BORROW the turns from that.

Re: who here has led bulbs in 07+ tail lights?

question... If companies are saying plug and play, why would I need resistors if my turn signal flasher is electronic?
