led lights

Anyone else have led bulbs in the turn signals? I have all my bulbs converted to led with resistors installed. Were working fine for months and now they are acting up. Extreme cold right now near me in the negatives.

I converted all of my lights to LEDs. No issues. The temps here have been between -25 and -40.

Sorry. Hit send by accident. What sort of "acting up" are you experiencing?

A couple of things to check.
1. There are 3 wires going to the signal lights. Make sure that the resistor is across the correct two.
2. If you have an ohm meter, check the resistor to confirm that it is still functional. If not, then replace it.
3. What value of resistor are you using? I'd have to double check but I think mine are 12v 25W 10ohm resistors.

Your resistor is either burnt out, or it's not making contact between the two wires you attached it to. If you used vampire taps, then you probably have bi-metallic corrosion. Double check your connections and then tape it up with 3M all weather electrical tape.

I'm probably gonna switch back to regular bulbs soon. I bought it used and the original owner put led turn signal assemblies in the front so figured I'd match them in the rear. But they are just becoming annoying.
