LED Hyper Flash Fix

I bought the spider 5 spoke Led's for my tails. On one of the led's the running light doesn't come on, only when I brake or turn the blinker on. So I went and bought these load equalizers from a local store but they didn't work. I may have wired them wrong but idk. The instructions sucked. I was hoping it would fix the led problem, but it didn't, so I just ordered new led's. can someone tell me the right equalizers to get? Thanks. Click image for larger version

I just used a splice kit and some resistors and haven't had a single issue. I have the Eagle Eye LED tails though.

LED Load Resistor, 6 Ohm, 50W is exactly what I bought.

I reaplced all my exterior lights with LEDs, front and rear. what I found I needed to make the signal not hyper flash was this:

50w 6ohm... one for each front turn signal:
http://www.amazon.com/Resistors-Signal-License-Warning-Cancellor/dp/B004EDF8HY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370979314&sr=8-1&keywords=led+load+resistor
And

One 25w 10ohm resistor for each rear turn signal:
http://www.amazon.com/Resistor-Hyper-Blinking-Warning-Signal/dp/B002CJQIGW/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1370979314&sr=8-5&keywords=led+load+resistor
I've so far only had to replace one resistor after a little over a year of use.
It was the rear one, which is more likely to go because the resistor also powers up with the brakes.


When I wired them I soldered one end of the resistor to the Turn Signal wire, and the other end I just screwed down to ground.

Cruisin, what led did you use for the front?

I went with these bright ass ones from V-leds:

They're not as deep orange as my old leds but they are a hell of a lot brighter. I'm still on the search for some bright orange ones like my old pair.

Yea... seems of you want quality paired with brightness it costs a bit. I got a similar set of reds for the rear. They're definitely bright enough to be seen now.

I have these in right now. They aren't nearly as bright as the vleds but they are definitely get the job done as you can see in my progression thread or my avatar pic.

Where did you stick your load resistors, since they get so hot?

On the rear I pulled the bumper cover and screwed them down to the steel bumper and did my wiring down there.
Up front I just screwed em down to the frame rail that runs right under the headlights.

I thought you just wire it to a ground and the power supply that controls the blinking of the turn signal?

Alright guys, I pulled my brake light and snapped some pics for ya.

I'm about 90% sure there is no traditional flasher in these cars, it's all BCM controlled, that being said you have to fool the BCM into thinking actual bulbs are still attached, so we add resistors to draw more current and fool the BCM. You'll need one resistor for each corner, just like one bulb for each corner.

Looking at the back of the light you'll see the Purple wire is the only not shared wire, this purple wire is the Stop/Turn signal wires


But take a closer look at the main connector and you'll see the purple wire is actually a yellow wire:
Purple becomes yellow, gray becomes green...


With the light removed if you look straight down behind the bumper you'll see the steel reinforcement. I screwed mine down there.
One wire goes to ground (the same screw) The other wire got soldered to the yellow wire in the harness and then taped up (red arrow)


Also it's a good idea to double check you have the right wire, use a meter or test light with the turn signal on and be sure it's functioning as it should.

I should also add, without a resistor and my car not running the signal is fine, as soon as I'd start the car it would hyperflash. (with one missing resistor)

Here's a wider shot so you can see my setup, same on both side.
I can try to get some front shots if anyone needs em.
