RECON LED turn signals

Hey yall,

I just got a pair of Recon LED smoke turn signals from a friend. There were no instructions. It says simple plug and play in minutes. I looked at my current set-up and it didnt look the same. Could it be the 07-11 turn signal seating is different from the 2012? If it is the same, does anyone have installation instructions? I couldnt find them online.

Thanks

I just replaced all the bulbs, inside and out, with LED bulbs and I am very happy with the results.

I just installed my Recon LED's it is Plug N' Play what you have to do is just pull the light bulb out from your current socket and plug the Recon LED there, you still use the factory harness (it's like changing the light bulb, you know where you plug the actual light bulb in right?...that's where you plug the LED in)

Sorry to bring back an old one but curious how these lights are holding up. There are other comments about their durability and issues with rapid blinking unless additional parts are installed. Thanks.

Reviews aren't very good on these lights for $100.00 a set. Only a 90 day warranty

So far I haven't had any problems but I did have to add the resistors to keep it from hyper flashing...now the work great, I love tem and they are bite at night!

How right you are. At superbrightleds.com, the warranty is 2 years per bulb.

I have had Recon lighting on a few vehicles and they have been flawless, others I know have had a few problems. I would buy again in a heartbeat.

How exactly did you get your resistors to work? i took one end of resistor and clamped it to outside white wire and the other end of resistor was tied to metal lug nut under light housing

What LED bulbs did you use and from where?

Recon turn signal light hyper flash resolution!

Ok so after reading the instructions (no help at all) then calling them (no help at all) I figured it out with the help of some other guy on another tread page.

Step 1. pull off guard and disconnect light BULBS (not the housing) just pull the bulbs out.

take out OEM turn signal lights by pushing the tabs in and sliding them out

put in new Recon lights like they should be according to tabs.

Step 2. pull you wires out of the black plastic cover exposing the THREE wires. 2 white and 1 black wire.

take your resistor sent with Recon lights and using one of the blue wire connectors take the OUTSIDE WHITE wire and connect it to one of the wires in the resistor. then take the other wire of the resistor (opposite side) and using the other blue wire connector connected the resistor wire to the BLACK wire.

Step 3. repeat the same on the other light. Maybe wrap it all up with some electrical tape if you want.

Thats it.

Trouble shooting: I had to really make sure the blue connecters were crimped on using some pliers.

Also use some double sided tape to secure resistor to body somewhere. The instructions suggest they'll turn into lava but as long as you don't have your turn signal on for 3 hours its fine.

When taping into the wiring using blue Scotch Locks use dielectric grease to avoid corrosion. If you just use electrical tape it will hold salt and dirt eventually corroding the wiring in half. I'd even tape it after using dielectric grease.
