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

your standard bulb can go in either way so it works in both a CK or other type 3157 socket. since LED only work ONE WAY they will NOT work in a CK type socket.

bro i didnt create the issue.....google can show you this is not only a jeep proble,m . heck, they creted a special bulb to fix the issue

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

So I am planning on tinting my tails and want to not run the risk of warping, as my last Jeep did, where can I find these harnesses instead of running resistors and how much are they?

Yup.. LED is polar sensitive... I realize that.... but I am not sure why a resistor will remedy that?

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

i can only tell you what works, i have NO IDEA WHY.

go ask LIPS he's an engineer/



reread this///////////


the resistor is what TRICKS the system into seeing a DRAW from the LED similar to incandescent.

the polarity is a seperate issue/

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

prob will splice into original harness before the resistors for the trailer harness now
