L.E.D help request
just got the wiring harnesses from Lippy, thanks bro!

ok, they work, 6 OHM resistor, LED bulbs, stock housing.

They work with brakes on, blinkers (no brakes), blinkers (brakes)

With headlights on, Brakes and blinkers work... BUT... at rest, the driver's side one is off... wtf could that be? its not a fuse right?

Re: L.E.D help request

Re: L.E.D help request
do you have the correct bulbs

you MUST have the S_RK bulbs or you blow the parking fuse.

from ekaz on the red site. early models MAY be different, this is for 07+ and UP

LED replacement bulbs will work in tail lights with or without rear fog harness
You need the S_RK bulbs (see v-leds )

If NO rear fog harness
Connect 6ohm resistor to black and outer white wire of OEM harness

if YES rear fog harness
Connect 3ohm resistor to black and outer white wire of OEM harness.

Re: L.E.D help request
I'm using these...

how could one blow but not the other?

Re: L.E.D help request
those look to be correct bulbs.

you have them wireed EXACTLY as EKAZ explains with the correct resistor? for your setup from lips?

Re: L.E.D help request
ok.... new intel...

its blowing fuses... first it blew the driver's, then the pass, replaced them to see if the bulbs were in wrong... then it blew the passenger but not the driver....

am i going insane?

there are three fuses in a row in the fuse box. the first blows and ONLY the driver's goes out, and ONLY then the headlights are on without parking or blinking. The third does it for the passenger.

are these really only dedicated to running the lights when the headlights are on?

also checked for shorts, lips' stuff is air tight, nothing would be able to ground out.

edit: haha apparently the fuses i blew include the airbag one..... sigh

Re: L.E.D help request
ok now im kinda gettin pissed...

somehow it set off my airbag sensor, so that warning light is on, and i dunno how to handle that.

I replaced the bulbs with the stock ones and pulled the harnesses..... too bad because those LED's looked so sick

Re: L.E.D help request
you used a fuse called spare... surprise, its not a spare. its the airbag sensor...........

Relwarc 09-15-2009 07:34 PM

Re: L.E.D help request
.... really? or are you kidding?.... i feel dumb and.... bewildered...

side note:
may be coincidence, but one bulb burned out the driver's fuse, and the other didnt do it to the passenger's... switched bulbs, opposite problem. could the BULB be killing fuses?

robpp 09-15-2009 07:48 PM

Re: L.E.D help request
im dead serious about the fuses. i did it. as most will once.................

if you have them wired exactly like ekaz, i dont know what the problem is. LEDs are only one way . so when you wire it like his, and one bulb doesnt come on, try pulling it out and reversing the bulb.

and you should be disconnecting the battery every thime you touch something. as you found out things are rather sensitive.
