You know, that's interesting, but it seems as if people can't see my front turn signals when either the DRL's or headlamps are on.

I like those a lot SmokeyBear. If you wouldn't mind sharing your lighting set up by part number/location that would be awesome.

i can get them to light up just fine until i hit the signal it flashes fine for a min and then goes fast .. it also will just go out completely .. seems as if the resistor is not even there but its connected just like everyone else and its a 50w 6ohm resistor ..

thanks for your help

The reason I ask is I have an issue as well. In my case, the parking light won't even stay lit. I figured it is going to need a resistor on that circuit as well in order to get them to stay lit. Not sure why only my car seems to be afflicted with this.

The only reason you need a resistor is to stop the fast flashing...
Other then that, you don't need one.

Not on my car. For some reason the parking lamp won't say lit unless i put a resistor on it as well. My car is definitely the exception though.

How did you wire your resistors. I still haven't wired mine up and I have had my switchbacks for almost a year. I have been dealing with the hyper flash ever since. lol

They go inline with one of the wires in the harness...
Don't remember what color...
There's a write up on here somewhere...
Just don't mount them on plastic, they get hot.

I did not, but when I plugged the same light into my wifes car, it lit up and stayed lit. Same when I apply 12V to it directly from the battery and when I run 12V from the harness that connects to it. It works... When I put it in the bulb holder it lites up for a second, then shuts off.

Does anyone make these with resistors built in? Adding resistors to the OEM wiring seems bush league to me.

Nope, no built in resistors that I know of...
Wonder if another brand will be ok...
YOu have these or VLED?
