whY402Jay I guess nothing was actually wrong. Now I'm going to buy the flashers and be in perfectly working order. I love the modern look.

So I accidentally had a couple wires touch and I don't know what fuse to change. Would you happen to know? I can't find a sensible fuse box diagram or wire diagram ANYWHERE online. Not in google or jeepforum.

Can you assist me, sir?

Peepers Some of those lights have a built in resistor, so they use the same amount of power as a regular bulb. That way you don't have to change the flasher relay.

zte87 Never mind my last post I thought you were doing the flush mount led!

Xpress Out of curiosity... what company did those come from?

zte87 I just did mine and didt need a led flasher! I had 4 wires to I just sat there with a test light to figure out what did what! You only going to use two of them unless you are hooking up back up lights at the same time!

whY402Jay I know how to install them and what wires serve what function on the lights. I just need to know if anyone has the same color wires that I have.

78j10 Yes you will need to buy an led flasher. There only like 7 bux and can be had at any auto store.

As far as the lights go I'm surprised there not plug and play

Garyk Didnt they come with installation directions? If not google the maker, maybe can download a pdf.

Installing LED tail lights.

These were a gift so I am installing them.

Firstly, as I removed the OEM tail light and housing and disconnected the harness, I discovered that I have four wires and not three. I googled the wiring diagram and saw quite a few threads in the Jeep Forum but their wires were different colors than mine.

I need to know if anyone has a diagram with these colors:
black, black/yellow, green/red, and purple/black.

Secondly, is it necessary to buy an equalizer? I know I have to buy a more powerful blinker switch, but can they still function without the equalizer?
