LEDS, loading resistors, etc.
OK, please forgive the newbie, as he ha a couple of questions!

I have converted all of my exterior lights (except the headlights, of course!) to LEDS. I am getting the rapid flashing, which I expected, as the load is less that with regular bulbs. I have been reading about the loading resistors, but for the life of me, can't seem to figure out where I should install them, physically, especially in the taillights. All plastic, and no damn room! :(

It would seem to me that it would be more logical to install one at the FLASHER, since one flasher controls both L&R lights.

Anyone care to share their handiwork, tips or techniques??
Many thanks, in advance!

There's plenty of room behind the tail light assembly. If I remember correctly, mine have been 3M'ed to the body behind the tail light. The ones up front can really go anywhere as long as the leads are long enough to allow for removal of the headlight if needed.

Thanks! I think on the front, I will splice them in with jelly splicers, but on the back, I cannot figure out there to put them; there does not appear to be a lot of room in my '03. Plus, I gotta figure out which wires to cut into...that set up with the ONE connector is a blessing AND a curse! :)
