Recon LED Bulb Resistor Kit (1 Piece)
We have found that most 2011 model years will require a resistor to be installed in order for the LED reverse light to function properly. This is due to the newer computers which run the vehicles lightning system. The LED's require lower voltage to run them which the computer thinks is a blown bulb. The resistor will in turn stimulate a load signal similar to that of a standard filament bulb.
LED bulbs may cause some newer vehicles to indicate a bulb is burnt out (because of their low power consumption). Some cars indicate this by increasing the flash rate of the turn signals, some turn on a bad bulb indicator. This can be remedied with our Load Resistors wired across the turn signal bulbs to simulate a filament bulb load.
This 6 Ohm, 50 Watt resistors can be connected across the turn signal bulbs to simulate the load of a regular filament bulb (2 Amp load). This will solve LED related turn signal problems such as hyper flashing or burnt out bulb indications. This LED Load Resistor can be use with most signal or brake light which uses SINGLE or DUAL FILAMENT LED light bulbs, like the 7443, 1157, 3157, 4157, 1156, 7440, 3156 etc
