LED bulbs for front & rear signals

BLUF: Do any of you have suggestions of LED bulbs (including switchbacks) for 2011-2013 GC turn signals? Most other LED bulbs fit and work fine. For some strange reason, this $50,000 car has a plethora of halogen bulbs and it doesn't like LEDs for turn signals. I already have working resistors...I just need bulbs that will fit and work. I've already tried to flip them...no luck. I've been through at least 15 different sets of bulbs in the past 6 months and I'm thinking rocket science may not be so hard after all compared to this car's lights.

Most bulbs (7444) work on the front signals; they're all just too big.

Most bulbs (3057) fit the rear signals; they just don't turn on (sometimes if you apply positive pressure to them, they'll work).

Please inform us if there are specific brands that will FIT & WORK WITHOUT MODIFICATION. It will be very highly appreciated!

Re: LED bulbs for front & rear signals

in the wk1 world we needed a CK wired bulb to work in rear.

plus a resistor.

on a 2005-06 which had 2 bulbs it takes ONE REG AND ONE CK plus resistors.



if you google you can find picture of the differences.

a few minutes with a test light or device should figure it out.

also talk to xenon depot on here. they are vendor from day 1 on here and KNOW the Grand Cherokees.
they list all bulbs available and I bet will take something back if it doesnt fit.

Thanks for that. I'd always wondered if CK was the issue. I think my next purchase will be CK but first I have to diagnose some newer problems with my aux tail light which has now led to my driver side rear lamp being dis-functional. I've checked the fuses numerous times and switched sockets and bulbs. I'm crashing and burning everyday with this car. I should sell this thing and go get my 04 WJ Overland back. It's electrical problems were a bit more logical.
