LED tail lights

Post by dbduely »

On 1200L if leds replace the regular bulbs will it turn on the dash light for a burned out tail light. If it does like I think it will probably do is there any way for it not to other than adding a load which would make it useless because it would defeat the main purpose. Thanks for any in put dbduely

there is a way to use a inline resistor I read somewhere , lots of guys are going for the brighter effect of the led's and not concerned about amp draw as much . i also think there are led's on the market that make up for the problem right in the bulb itself. there are guys here that i'm sure can tell ya straight . some of them only come around every few days
