aghostinside For mine, I finally gave up checking grounds making sure wires were in place.
What I did: I ran my wires under my hood and wired the factory lights up so no one could see them. I then just ran my led lights off of the factory lights. This isn't what I wanted but, it works and I guess I can deal with that.

NOC BULLDOG I added led tails on my 97 tj. I had to ground both sides to make it work properly.
Good luck, and let us know!

aghostinside Any updates?

aghostinside Well iused a test light and found out what wires were what. no more blowing fuses but if you turn on the left signal the right blinks a little and vice versa. So needless to say I'm done messing with mine today.

To crwddyz: did you figure out what was causing your problem?

aghostinside I have brake lights and hazards. I got too frustrated with mine tonight. Blew the same fuse 3 times. Gonna try again tomorrow. This may be stupid but my question is if I have the wires wrong, then why do the turn signals still blink? Anyways good luck

Here's a good write up from Stu's Site. What ever you do, DO NOT install Resistors in line to make the turn signals flash slower. You're begging for a fire.
ONLY use the approved Electronic Flasher approved for LED tail lights. EP-26(you can get from NAPA or Pep Boys) for 1997-2000 TJ's and GCD-TJ0106 (from Gold Coast Off Road) for 2001 + TJ's.
OK...thanks...I'll do that tomorrow and check the relay to make sure I have the right one. Strange part is that the brake laights worked when I first hooked everything up, but I have no idea for how long.....I mean they worked for a few days at least.

Yeah...I do not even have a license plate lamp right now. I just cut the wire when I put my corners and tire carrier on. So my plate wire is just hanging there currently. I am going to work on it all tomorrow.

I also have no running lights on the front turn/running LEDs either....but I think I wired them wrong, the turns and hazards work fine....just no running lights.

Installed LED Tails...now blowing Brake fuse

Hi...longtime lurker...first post...need some help please.

I have a 2006 TJ Rubicon. I just installed rear corners and LED flush mount rear tail/brake/turn signal lights and front LED turn/running lights. I also installed the LED relay in the steering column that came with this complete kit from TREKS/TNT in Wyoming.

Everything works fine with the LEDs except the brake light fuse blows as soon as I press the brake pedal...everytime...fuse # 2 behind the glove box.

I find everything wired correct and no shorts....ideas ?

Thanks for any help....
