who here has led bulbs in 07+ tail lights?

any one have led bulbs in their taillights? i got mine tinted and i dont want them to warp. i was wondering if any resistor is needed for the lights to function properly(mostly day time lights and braking) i believe reverse won't have a problem.

6 ohm. one each side.

also you need the special CK bulbs unless you switch the 2 outer wires. or make a harness.

basically its a bulb wired differently. http://autolumination.com/3157_led_s...eshooting.html

what does ct mean in your post.
you use a 6 ohm resistor across the ground and brk/blink wires; which are the 2 outer ones.

since it seems so difficult to understand maybe you should ask lips to make you a harness

LOLOL bring it


you only have ONE bulb so what do you mean braking bulb??

your ONE bulb has 3 wires. so do 2 things. run the 6ohm resistor across the ground and the brake blink, the middle wire is park lamp. leave it alone.

then order CK bulbs OR switch the 2 outer wires going into the bulb. yes the gound and the brake blink. cross them over. then ANY 3157 will work. and the stock bulb will still work too.
