I recently bought a pair of "Spider LED Bulbs"



well when I go to do the turn signals the blinker flashes rapidly as if the bulb was not working properly. I don't know what the problem would be when I hit the button for the hazard lights they flash like any normal bulb would. any suggestions on this?

You need to wire in a resistor. LEDs draw less power than normal filament bulbs. Because of this they cause turn signals to flash faster since there is less load on the circuit.

Yup that's it.

I think I remember seeing a write up some where but shouldn't be too difficult to do though.

Yea I found a diagram and it seems easy to do. I did not know that i would need a resistor for LEDs. Well I found a website that sells them and plan on purchasing them next week. Until then i will have to get used to the fast blinker.

Yup it's only if you plan to use them for turn signals but as running lights they work just fine.

Well I have the Base lights which combine the brake and turn together so i would have to get them. But yea its not hard to install that.

thanks Todd. I had already ordered some from DDM tuning and they should get here by next week. I was looking through some old posts and i found one talking about the same thing.
