problems with LED headlights
 
Ok so I bought some LED high beams I plugged them in they are bright and nice! but they stay on all the time at a dim level any thoughts?

sounds like they need resistors?

where did you get them?

any pics at night of the output? im interested!

I didn't think you needed resistors on something that didn't blink...

either that or a harness. my footwell led's have a constant "glow" which sounds like the same thing you are getting. im pretty sure its because they need resistors to control the power they are getting (too much).

my footwells do too... actually love how it does that ill throw some resistors on there and see whats up... deff loving the idea of having these

let me know bro I got all sorts 3ohm to 100ohm I think LOL

How many times will the footwell/interior lighting stopping on problem rear its head again!!

the interior is easy 470ohm on any of the glowing lamps. you can even just shove it into the fixture....no solder.




teekay .... maybe its better to come by and we can try the ones I have and see if we can solve it.

If you dont buy canbus spec LED's definately need to add resistors.

I made the same mistake on my interior courtesy lights.
In a really random way one or other of the lights including roof console lights would stay on or very dim , only visable at night and flicker.

Changed them to canbus LED's and wham problem solved.
Canbus LEDs have an internal resistor.

Hope that helps put your mind at rest

Instead of a resistor, you can leave a stock bulb somewhere, that's been known to work too. As for the headlights, I agree that you need a resistor.

Re: problems with LED headlights
 
My interiors I went all LED and my footwells have a very classy glow... I will deff throw some resistors on them because the stock halogen BS looks like crap compared to my entire led truck
