What Size Resistor???
 
I have a 2005 WK. I want all my interior lights to be High Power LEDs from VLEDS.

What size resistor do I need to get rid of "the glow"?

I hope someone can answer. It's just a matter of buying a resister for $00.25 or less from Radio Shack. And I need a new soldering pen.

cant you just leave the cargo area bulb in to eliminate the glow?

The cargo has had an incandescent bulb in it for a while and it is an eye sore.

I want the resistor.

The box is not in the same circuit as the dome lights.

If you replace ALL lights with LEDs, footwells front maps, rear maps, and cargo then you will have the glow.

I can't believe this has not been answered yet. Nate has a resistor but does not know what size. If the pictures wasn't so blurry, I could read the color code.

I picked up the resistor today to do the same as you. Are going to pull the harness through the hole or remove the trim?

I'm going to remove the liftgate trim. It's easy. Why not.

Are you doing it today? Let me know what happens.

DanD2124 06-13-2011 06:04 PM

No I won't be doing it today I dropped my jeep today to get painted. I'll be doing this when I get it back in a few days. Let me know if you get it done first and how it goes.
