One thing you might try is flipping the bulb 180 degrees in the socket and see if that makes a difference?

I love the blacked out turn signal look. I've actually thought about buying a whole new mesh grill insert to completely fill in that top sectional and just remove the OEM turn signals all together and install some LED's turn signals inside the mesh that are hidden.

Isn't that a WHITE colored bulb? What color do your bulbs blink---AMBER or WHITE.
I tried the "A" bulbs that I had purchased and they come on solid but will not blink at all.

This is really getting me confused now.

HELP!!!

No, I personally have not had any issues with my '06.

Dicktator Interesting, I use same bulb but mine is '04.

I know the software & wiring is different in 05/06 and the 06 has some changes from 05.

I had to add resistors.

May depend what year you have.

Dicktator Original Thread 2012!

Do some checking before you go to far.

LED Polarity sensitive, low resistance.

LED tail lights will not work without changing Flasher Module.

Turn signals will not work without installing resistors.

SSR How to Library: https://onedrive.live.com/?id=3EF39D...F39D9F5ADCE5E5

One SSR owner changed all his bubs to LED, had to add resistors in front of most of them to get all his lights to work again.

Just saying.

Joshvette If you replace the flasher module with the LM486 do you still need resistors in the turn signals??

I wouldn't think you would but not sure....

I was thinking there might be an option now that was just a bulb swap. I'm looking for a LED change without having to splice into the OE wiring.

Hey, when do you think you might be back in Houston? It has been awhile since I met you at one of our monthly Breakfasts.

Thanks,
David
David, not sure when I'll be back to Houston. Wish I could come down and say HI, great group of people down that way.

I haven't spliced any resistors in my wiring just using replacement bulbs and they seem to work fine.

DANIBCNU When I replaced my tail lights with LED Bulbs, I now get a fast blinker. Isn't there some sort of module that needs to be replaced so my low voltage LED Bulbs blink at the regular intervals????
