You would need resistors...

lol what are those exactly =)

The led's draw a lot less power then the stock bulbs. That causes it to "hyper flash" because the system sees it as a bulb that's about to go out. The resistor gets spliced inline with the new switchback bulb and tricks the system into thinking that the led is a normal bulb and fixes the hyper flash. Cheap and easy install.

Mine will arrive in the mail tomorrow. I'm not sure if you need the Standard or CK Type for the 08 WK because I have the 05.

Here is a thread on it. It's very simple.

I didn't read the thread linked above, but I used 1.5 ohm resistors, 1 on each side.

Take his^^^ advice as far as what resistor to use because you have similar model WKs.

yeah it wont hurt. use the 1.5/

be careful where you mount them they get super hot/



and only CK needed in rear 07+. ALL FRONT USE STANDARD 3157.

Where did u guys find the 1.5 ohm resistors? I can't find one anywhere

I ordered mine from allied electronics. I'd send them if I had any left, just gave the last 2 away. I think I have some 3 ohm if you wanted to wire them down to 1.5 ohm.

Crestwood1001 07-25-2011 06:59 PM

How do you wire them down to 1.5 ohms
