LEDs proving to be a pain in the arse
So I've replaced all exterior bulbs with LED bulbs, except my fogs, HIs, and LOs. If I have my lights off, and my fog light switch off. then if I use any turn signal it'll make all my parking lights flash with it. Unless I turn the fog light switch ON. (It's wired to pull power from the parking lights circuit) I'm assuming there just isn't enough load on the system so it all flashes. But I have resistors front and back to keep the turn signal flashing slow. This is perplexing. So far I've just been keeping the fog light switch on so it all works properly.
Any ideas on that one?
And Today I installed LED interior lights, for my Map, Dome, and Trunk light.
now that it's dark I noticed that once the interior lights turn off... one or both of the map lights are slightly on, very dim, but on. I'm not worried about it killing the battery. I just want to know why the hell does it do that?!? I mean there shouldn't be anything to monitor current draw to notify me of a bulb out. I used automotive replacement LEDs with little resistors built in to each bulb. This is just crazy.
And if I turn on both Map lights, then the dome light will glow a little.
Anyone else with LEDs have these issues? Maybe I just need MORE Resistors! EVERYWHERE! haha
