Question Led tail lights

I just tried to install the IPCW led tail lights on my 2010 jeep wrangler, it blew a fuse for the turn,tail, brake light on the side i hooked up. The flashers still work an also the backup lights. I could not find a replacement flasher for this year model so i am using the rl-650 load resistors. I had not hooked up the resistor yet and just turned on the lights to see if the would come on. does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for the help.

They are probably not a plug and play item. The canbus system does not recognize them and resistances must be the same, or nearly the same, as the factory items. I have not used led's in any of my vehicles but have read quite a bit on using them on motorcycles with canbus. The Jeep is presumably the same.

Smile Led lights

They are plug and play, i think i found out the reason why. I believe if you hook the wires the wrong way it will blow the fuse. I hooked up the other side and reversed the way the left side was plugged in and it worked. I am going to get another fuse to see if it works while driving for a while. I took a fuse out another spot and replaced the blown one, it works now. I will post a update after i get it going.

That's cool. Canbus can be a real painintheass but if you have things plugged in the right direction it works fine huh?

So you did not need to use any resistors? Very confusing in that I have read use resistors and then other posts saying you don't need them.
