How to install auto bulbs ?

These are SUPER EASY to install. There is no modification needed at all. Since LED lamp has + and - terminals, so if there is no lighting after inserting it into socket, just simply change the terminal oppositely.

 

 

Which color of LED should I use?

For the most vivid color and best results the LED color should be the same as the lens color. If a white LED is used behind a red lens some of the useable light is filtered out. If a white LED is used behind an amber lens the color will be bright yellow.

 

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 two resistors and 4 gel filled moisture resistant splice taps.

Connection Instructions:
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 kits.

ELECTRONIC LED FLASHERS
This problem 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.

Bulb Out Warning Fix:
These 25 Ohm, 25 Watt resistors can be connected across the turn signal bulbs to simulate the load of a miniature filament bulb. This will solve LED related burnt out bulb warnings in your dash board display. One resistor is required for each bulb. Includes gel filled moisture resistant splice taps.

 

 

 

 

What is the difference between Warm White

 

and Cool White?

Cool White
These LEDs have a slight tint of blue to them. They are rated at 6,000-8,000 Kelvin. These bulbs are a great match for most stock and aftermarket HID headlight systems.

Warm White
These LEDs are closer to the color of a standard incandescent bulb. They are rated at 3,000-4.500 Kelvin.

 

Which LEDs bulbs are brightest?

Output greatly depends on the application and the intent of the installation. Our High Power and SMT bulbs are the brightest we currently offer. In most cases the higher number of diodes the bulb has the brighter the output.

 

Are the bulbs standard size?

All our bulbs are standard size and will fit the application it is replacing.

 

Do your bulbs have dual intensity?

All our 1157, 3157, and 7443 bulbs have high and low output. They will get brighter when the brake or turn signal is applied.

 

Will LEDs work with the dimmer?

Yes LEDs will dim just like a standard bulb.

 

What bulb type or part number does my car take?

Sorry we cannot advise on which bulbs your vehicle or application takes. Please check our data in F.A.Q. :common part # and cross reference .

 

Can I replace my headlights with LEDs?

These bulbs are intended for use as a Day Time Running light or for aesthetic purposes only. They are a great match for HID headlights but not intended to be used as a primary source of light.

**Use Special 3157-SRCK bulbs to replace the tail lights on 04-07 Dodge Ram trucks, center tail tamp bulbs on 88-99 (Old Body Style) Chevy, GMC full size trucks & SUVs (Use the Regular 3157 bulb for the top tail lamp bulbs), 95-01 Cavalier and Sunfire,& 92-98 Grand Am tail lamp bulbs
Use 3157-SACK bulbs for front turn signals on the Toyota Tundra.
If you install regular LED bulbs and keep blowing fuses you probably need these bulbs.
