I have a 2012 Overland. I need to replace the rear outside,on the body taillight LED's that I have in there now. It's been a while and I can't remember what they are. What are the best ones to get?
You either need to add resistors or make a software update with something like AppcarFCA.My question should have said, I need to replace my 3157 led's. What is the best replacement and I need the resistor to match the led. Looking for answers from members who have had experience with them. Thanks
I'm lazy but thanks for taking your time to tell me that... most post talk about led's but not resistors to match the led... I don't want to go the app route...You either need to add resistors or make a software update with something like AppcarFCA.
There are many decent 3157’s out there. Each of us is likely to have our biases based on what we bought, so your best best is to search the prior threads on this forum and do some reading. There are many existing threads on led bulbs and tons of information if you look for it.
LOL, it just seemed such a general question that “research” seemed the best answer.I'm lazy but thanks for taking your time to tell me that... most post talk about led's but not resistors to match the led... I don't want to go the app route...
He has a MY12...LEDs were not "a thing" at that point so the software route isn't the same as MY14+, especially later years. MY11-13 has a completely different electrical system...it's one the major changes that came with MY14 and why other electronics, like the head units, are not backward compatible.You either need to add resistors or make a software update with something like AppcarFCA.
FWIW, I couldn’t make the Triton fit in the rear of my 2018, so I used their other 3157. I am using the Triton switchback in my front park/turn position and they are stellar. Mine are the older V3 Triton, but the latest one is V6.Please post your results with those V-LEDs Tritons as I’ve been eying them myself.
Error free on a 2012? I read no that I still needed resistors. Show me pictures of the actual LED...Wow. Vleds need some giant resistors.
No errors / NO resistors and bright brake/tail 3157:

It seems like with OTHER LED models people tried you do need resistors.Error free on a 2012? I read no that I still needed resistors.
Sorry to hear this. NOT to pass blame but I always wonder when something like this works in these models and 1 car has that many problems if it is ground wiring or issue with voltage. It should not happen where the bulb go out. The new black pcb board model is different and held up better.MY12 was very finicky for stop/turn/tail and some of use were not successful using LEDs in that position, including the deAutoLED 3157s, both the old and newer designs. It is what it is...
