Actually, this was something I had thought about.

I really want to take it up a notch, and if not make Full-LED lights, then at least have some kind of board in there.

If not these, then i thought about tearing open a pair of 6G LED lights or even an 8G[??] pair. I think it was 8G. Some of them came with LEDs from the factory. At night, they look pretty similar, so i figured itd be worth a try.

Just havent been able to get my hands on a pair, lol.

If you went with those PCBs, you'd have to find some way of keeping them upright and pointing outward.

lonski is cool... so far.
Lots of homework to be done, I guess. There's quite a few electronics shops near my area, I guess that's a good place to start asking questions. Keep up the good work!

Ok, I bought the equalizers today. Installed them on one side (front bumper light and rear turn signal) connected them both up, and still have the hyperblink on that side.

There are two wires coming from the rear turn signal (Green with a yellow tracer and black), up front there are two green with yellow tracer wires and one black. Does it matter which green/yellow wire the eq is attached to up front OR which side of the eq is at which wire??

No it just goes one end to positive and one end to neg, so the two wires that come out the bulbs.

I noticed with the equalizer, the insulation kinda is longer than the metal wire inside, so you may have to re-do the crimp and make sure you grabbed some wire. Because thats what happened to me the first time i just got some insulation and no wire. So I cut the end of so the length of wire and insulation is the same and re-crimped it and its been good ever since.

hmm, I will have to double check that. Thanks for the quick reply.


EDIT: Fixed. Just needed a little persuasion. The metal contact on the connectors was not getting through the wire insulation...

Just gave them all a good squeeze with the pliers and they all started cooperating.

i just went to AutoZone and spent $100 on the led bulbs (no 1156 white or amber, they only had red). i got 4 (2 sets) 1157 red, and 6 194 amber (3 sets, returning 1 and will try to get them in white) and 4 (2 sets) of the equalizer .

question. The ones at AZ are 12 bulbs, and i did the driver side brake lights to see how much brighter it was but i think my sylvania's are brighter. They do light up quicker, but is it just me or is it because they are 12 instead of 18??

thanks

oh, i didnt' install the EQ since that is just for the hyperblinking.

Brake lights, rear signals or both?

Do they almost fit or is there not even a chance? Cuz i had that problem on my OEM tails, but after a little careful sanding, they fit.

Strangely, my Red/Clears didnt need to be sanded at all.

stock tail light and they fit without a problem.
it was like a direct replacement.
and it was just the brake lights.

i ended up returning everything since it was not as bright as the picture. I will get the 18 bulb ones and see if they are brighter.

I hope i wont have this problem when I get my red/clear

My Rear signals and brake lights along with my front bumper lights are 24 LED's. Front corner lenses and license plate 194's are 4 LED.




Anyone had any trouble with 1 of the 194's crapping out? I just got stopped by a cop buddy of mine that wanted to give me shit, told me one of my license plate lights was out. I told him I was going to go back and take a look because they are brand new. Walked back and looked, one was indeed out. Came home and looked at it, thinking maybe it had just came loose. No dice. It appears to be deceased.

So it is going back to AutoZone tomorrow. Hopefully I can get a replacement.

You found white ones at AZ?

All they had at mine were amber 194 and red 1157.

Oh well. Might just have been a bad bulb, mike. Hopefully its not a wiring thing.

Oh, and btw, i got a "brake lamp" light today. Just once. Seems it still comes on from time to time. Maybe as a dummy light or something.

I bought the white ones off of Ebay. The AutoZone that I went to (Olathe) told me they did not keep the white in-stock normally. Just contacted the seller on ebay. I got them for really cheap so its really no biggie if I cant get
it replaced for free, but it is worth a shot and the auction page said "Manufacturers Warranty Included."

I am almost positive that it is not a wiring issue but a bad bulb issue. I took the bad bulb out and replaced it with the other white LED I had in the other socket and put the bad bulb in the socket where it was. The bulb that went out was still out and the bulb that was working still does. Even threw the bulb that was giving me trouble on the front corner and still nothing.

Hopefully I can figure something out soon, I am already tired of looking at that one incandescent bulb on my license plate.

I havent noticed or been looking, but let me go check. . . . . Nope, all gravy. Only thing that comes on with the brake pedal are the brake lights and all 4 lit up with the alarm, so...

WTF? When you get on the brakes your corners come on? What in the hell were you doing to that poor car when you were on your CB7tuner vacation? lol

I think the P12 did it. But I have some other things to test first.
