Which Color LEDs should I use ?
For the best coloration and best results, the
LED color should be the same as the lens color. For example: a red
lens will filter out all but the red portion of the light so if the
light is all red, none or very little light will be blocked by the
lens. The light spectrum from a white LED bulb contains very little
light in the red portion of the visible spectrum so most of the light
would be filtered out by a red lens: eventhough a white LED bulb is
brighter than a red LED bulb outside of the lens.
Turn signal issues with LED bulbs
LED brake/tail lamps will not flash with thermal
flasher units due to their extremely low current draw. Some cars indicate
this by increasing the flash rate of the turn signals, some do not
flash at all. This can be remedied with load resistors wired across
the turn signal bulbs to simulate a filament bulb load. One way to
test this is to pull out one of your blinker bulbs. If you get a bulb
out warning or rapid flashing, you will need load resistors.
Load Resistor Kits:
6 Ohm, 50 Watt resistors can be connected across the turn signal wire
to simulate the load of a regular filament bulb (2 Amp load). This
will solve LED related turn signal problems such as hyper flashing,
no flashing or burnt out bulb indications. One resistor is required
for each turn signal bulb. Kit includes one resistor and 2gel filled
moisture resistant splice taps.
Using the included splice taps, connect one wire to ground and the
other wire to the turn signal wire. You do not have to cut your car's
wires. Squeeze splice taps with pliers. One Load Resistor required
for each turn signal bulb. No instructions are include with these
Electronic LED Flashers
may also be remedied with an electronic flasher, these units are not
available for all makes of vehicles. Many vehicles have two blinker
units, one for hazard and one for turn, so locate both by sound output.
It is not always necessary to replace the hazard flasher.
Dash indicators reporting burnt out bulbs
LED bulbs may cause some newer vehicles to indicate a
bulb is burnt out (because of their low power consumption). This can be
remedied with our 25w load resistors to simulate a filament bulb load. One
way to test this is to pull out one of your bulbs, if you get a bulb out
warning you will need load resistors. Some
vehicles will also disable the cruise control system if a brake light
bulb is being indicated as bad, the installation of Load Resistors
will also solve this problem.
Bulb-Out Warning Fix
25 Ohm, 25 Watt resistors
can be connected across the low element wires to simulate the load
of a standard filament bulb. This will solve LED related burnt out
bulb warnings. One resistor is required for each bulb. Kit includes
one resistor and 2 gel filled moisture resistant splice taps.
Which LEDs bulbs are brightest ?
Our 1W High-Power LED's provide the highest
output. The SMT (surface mount technology) is the next-brightest bulb
available. Both types of high-output LED bulbs are significantly brighter
than the regular LED bulbs that you find in most automotive shops.
Are your bulbs standard size?
our bulbs are standard size and will fit the applications they are replacing.
How do your LED bulbs achieve dual intensity?
All of our Tail/Brake bulbs achieve dual intensity
modes by turning all of the LEDs on dim or all of the LEDs on bright,
all of the LEDs are always lit when either mode is active. (1157,
3157, 7443 etc..)
If I install LED bulbs in the dash, will the
dimmer still work?
Yes, LED bulbs will dim with your dash light intensity control
Which bulbs does my car take?
