Mine are white and flash white, however the lenses are amber already and I smoked my lenses so the amber bulbs weren't showing up as bright as I wanted. The one thing different on my taillights is I didn't use led bulbs in the stock lamps. I've got custom led taillights that I installed so maybe that is making the difference for me. One thing you might try is flipping the bulb 180 degrees in the socket and see if that makes a difference?

Rope, (hopefully) just one last question. I bought the Novita LM486 and installed it (in my '06) when I converted my taillights to LED. Everything fine. So then I want to change over my turn signal bulbs to LEDs. I ordered the #7443_21_A_6K. This bulb is AMBER. I see the number of the bulbs in your post above is #7443_21_W_6K. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you, Carl

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 haven't spliced any resistors in my wiring just using replacement bulbs and they seem to work fine.
|04-03-2016 10:28 AM|
Hey Rope. Did you have to splice resistors in-line for the sockets?? This is for AMBER FRONT LED directional bulbs.
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.

Yes, you need a Novita LM 486 flasher.
Here's how you install it.

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????

Do you have a definitive LED fog light lamp you can recommend

Thought I would list all my LED threads here so after time they are all still together in a easy place to find them...
LED Tail Light Bulb replacements
LED Side Marker / Plate / Glove Box replacement
LED 1157 CREE Reverse / Backup bulb replacement
LED Cargo bulb replacement
*LED CREE FRONT GRILLE TURN SIGNAL BULB REPLACEMENT COMING SOON*
*LED (x68) 880 FOG LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT COMING SOON*
