Vled help!
OK, so I installed VLED bulbs in my tails for stop/tail and for reverse. Everything was fine.

Today I got some VLED bulbs to install in my signals. I threw them in. Now when I hit the turn signal (it works) BUT the tails flash too! Both of them!

So if I hit the right turn signal, the right turn signal bulb flashes, the right tail light flashes and so does the left turn signal. WTF? Any idea what could be causing that? It didn't do it before and I do have a resistor tied into the tail light bulb.

It's entirely possible (but very doubtful) that it was doing this pre-VLED when I was running Superbright LED bulbs.

Where do I start?

hmm, maybe it blew a fuse? I had something similar in my WK, turn signal on and my license plate bulbs would blink as well.

Re: Vled help!
rememeber LEDs have polarity so try turning them around one at a time.

I will try flipping them tonight. It's just odd because everything illuminates. Usually if its a fuse or polarity they won't light at all. I'm going to throw the kitchen sink at it though. Flip bulbs, maybe remove and rewire the resistors.

Re: Vled help!
one thing at a time and you will figure it out..........especially if you had LED bulbs prior/

Re: Vled help!
One thing at a time fo sho....I figured it out. After flipping bulbs till I was blue in the face, I started dicking with the 3rd brake light. It's an aftermarket LED version. After installing a resistor across the leads for that, everything started working properly...woohoo!

Thanks guys...mission complete. While I was back there I Di-Noc'd my flipper glass handle ;)
