Led help

I have Vleds rear 3157s and I orderd 6ohm resistors..

Brake and turn works perfect, Running lamps keep blowing the 10amp fuse. I switched it twice, the 2nd time I smell a plastic burning. I pulled out the LED and it had melted the connection point..

I wired the resistor to the black wire and to the white/green wire..

Re: Led help

The white and green wire on my 05 is for the reverse.

Re: Led help

From my understanding, the white/green wire is the reverse wire for 05-10. Seems to me like you have the resistor on the reverse lights rather than the turn signal.

I could be wrong but this is what my understanding is from wkjeeps.

Lol why would the reverse be in a 3157 socket? Thanks man but thats not the issue. The 08 tails are 100% different then yours.

Their is only 3 to chose from on the 3157 pigtails, Black, White/purple, White/Green.. after it didnt work I moved it from white/green to the purple and it did the same thing.. I think I must need bigger resistor or something, but now that one bulb is junk anyway.

Re: Led help

Sorry. Just trying to help. It seam as if you have a short or to much load. Maybe not enough resistance.

Yeah, It has to be the resistor, I dont think that they are directional or anything.. Hoping a vendor or something will chime in..

I know you're trying to help but on the 07-10 tails they have a 3157 pigtail and another one for the reverse.. Its totally different from the 05-06 that have a single connection like yours.. I really wish mine were the 05-06 type I think they look better also.

Re: Led help

Resistors aren't polarized.

Thanks Rob, I JUST found your post in another guys thread about the CK/Standard on the rear...

Im a idiot and before I orderd I searched the forum for the answer to CK or Standard and found this http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread...157#post400323 But aparantly didnt pay attention to the title since that is for a WJ

Rob do you know which (white/purple or white/green) is brk/blk?

I feel like an idiot. lol.
